Our modest collection of children’s books has found its new home in Kanzbi in Zürich! What was once Maletaklatan, coined from the terms Maleta and Aklatan, a collection of about 50 Filipino children’s books, has now been permanently moved to the Children’s Library of Kanzbi in Zürich.
Catering to multi-lingual children of the region of Zürich, Kanzbi has welcomed our collection to be part of their intercultural library for books and toys. Now available publicly for all families for check-out, we are happy to share our stories with other curious children – with or without Filipino roots.
Halina’t dumalo sa Bibliothek St. Johann JUKIBO nitong ika-18 ng Disyembre ng 10:30 ng umaga para makinig sa kuwento ng isang munting kumot. Ang kuwentong ito ay babasahin ng isa sa ating mga KS Mommy. Sali na!
Dear Parents, Dear Members and Friends of Kuwentuhang Sabado,
We hope that you are all well and enjoying a lovely summer break! You may all know that during the height of the pandemic, we were forced to hold our Kuwentuhang Sabado (KS) meetings via Zoom. It was a great experience to have friends from all over the world join our storytelling sessions and share in our mission.
Thank you again to everyone who was able to attend and make the lockdown a little more bearable for us and our kids – and perhaps a little more memorable, too!
Ever since the COVID restrictions regarding group activities have been lifted in Switzerland, we were able to meet again for a couple of live KS sessions in the previous school year. It was great fun to finally see each other again! However, we also realized that KS meetings will never be quite the same.
As we are now approaching our 6th school year and as COVID is still looming over us in one way or another, we would like to assess the current needs of our member families as well as other families who may have not yet been part of our KS live sessions. This will help us know how we can offer you KS sessions that are most beneficial to you and your children as we move forward.
Please take the time to fill out the survey following this link:
It should take up no more than about 15 minutes of your time and your replies will be treated confidentially. (You can opt to take part in the survey anonymously.) We also encourage you to share the link and spread the word about KS to other friends or families who may not have joined KS yet but could be interested (all information about KS can be found on our homepage.) Participants will automatically enter a prize draw for one of three shopping vouchers worth 30.- Swiss Francs (~32 USD)!
Thank you for giving your replies on or before September 15, 2021 – your help will be very valuable to us. We are also grateful for all the support that you have shown us over the past 5 years! Stay tuned for the announcement of our next KS live sessions and, in the meantime, we wish you all good health and a successful start of the new school year for the kids!
Manigong Bagong Taon! Pagkatapos ng kalahating taon na masasayang pagtitipon ng Corona-Conform KS sa Zürich, magbababalik ang KS via Zoom nitong Enero para makasali muli ang mga kaibigan at kapamilya KS natin mula sa Pilipinas, Amerika, at iba pang bansa sa Europa!
Mula noong Setembre – nakapagtipon-tipon ang KS sa ELCH sa Zürich bawat buwan
Nitong panahon ng Coronavirus, nais parin natin ipagpatuloy ang KS para makapagkwentuhan at kantahan at kung anu-ano pa.
Marami sa atin abroad ay hindi nakauwi ng Pilipinas nitong bagong taon para mabisita ang ating mga pamilya at salubungin ang bagong taon. Dito sa Swisa, may mga probinsya na pinagbawal ang paputok para makaiwas sa pagtipon-tipon ng maraming tao sa isang lugar. Subalit, kahit na iba ang panahon ngayun, gusto parin natin isalubong ang bagong taon na may tatak Pinoy.
Kaya sali na kayo sa pinakaunang KS natin sa bagong taon. Sa unang pagkakataon, susubukan ng ating mga KS kids na magkwento mula sa isa sa kanilang paboritong aklat.
At para sa ating group activity, ihanda ang mga susunod:
cardboard-roll (tissue roll na walang laman)
dyaryo (o lumang papel)
maliliit na pasta na hilaw, butil ng mais, butil ng bigas
Sa ika-9 ng Enero ang ating KS. alas-10 n.u. sa oras ng CET.
Halina at makipaghalubilo sa ating susunod na pagtitipon suot ang inyong paboritong costume!
Sa ika-31 ng Oktubre mula alas dyes ng umaga hanggang alas dose ng tanghali sa ELCH Accu, makinig sa isa o dalawang kuwentong angkop sa Halloween na babasahin ni Nanay Kith.
Matapos ang maikling meryenda, maghahanda na tayo para sa Pasko sa pamamagitan ng pagkanta. Ituturo ni Nanay Charlie ang piniling kanta na aawitin natin para sa caroling. Gusto nating isaulo ang kantang ito upang maipalabas natin balang araw. Huwag niyong kalilimutan ang mga maskara (iwas Covid-19) at ang sarili ninyong meryenda.
Ano, sali na kayo at makisaya sa Kuwentuhang Sabado!
Come and mingle wearing your favorite costume on our next get-together!
On Oct. 31 from 10 AM – 12:00 PM at the ELCH Accu, listen to one or two stories related to Halloween that will be read by Mommy Kith.
After a short snack, we’ll start preparing for Christmas through singing. Mommy Charlie will teach the chosen song that we’ll sing for caroling. We want to memorize this song so we can perform it one day. Don’t forget your masks (Covid-19 precaution) and your own snack. So what are you waiting for?
Balik eskwela, balik Kuwentuhang Sabado na naman!!! Inaanyayahan namin kayo na dumalo sa Kuwentuhang Sabado nitong ika-5 ng Setyembre mula 10nu hanggang 12nt. Katakam-takam at nakakabusog ang KS na ito at mayroon tayong lulutuin sa araw na ito. Kita-kita tayo!
Dahil sa Covid-19, may mga bago tayong mga patakaran ukol sa Covid-19 tulad ng paghugas ng kamay, paggamit ng disinfectant sa pagpasok, social distancing, at paggamit ng mask para sa mga magulang.
Back to school, back to Kuwentuhang Sabado! We would like to invite you to a face to face Kuwentuhang Sabado on September 5th from 10am to 12pm at the ELCH Zentrum Oerlikon. It will be a tummy-rumbling and filling session as we whip up something from the kitchen. See you there!
In line with current Covid safety precautions, we will be washing our hands, using disinfectant, observing social distancing during the session, and parents will be required to wear a mask.
Open to all current members, and we welcome curious families to join us as well!
Sana magkita tayo sa susunod na Kuwentuhang Sabado! For more info about your schedule for the school year 2020-2021, click here.
