Our Class Has Got Talent program
The 'Our Class Has Got Talent' Program aims at dispelling the myth that academic achievement should be the only pursuit for children. It encourages children with low academic achievement to build other competitive advantages and provides scholarships for the economically disadvantaged children in the hope that children will gain more confidence in learning, and more cultural and creative talent can be nurtured. The 'talent' is discovered by teachers (carers) and peers, who film a documentary on the talent's value and gift worthy of recognition and recommend the talent to the foundation. The photographer is a selfless and wise talent scout, who maps out individual development plan and seeks opportunities for development according to his/her needs and will. Each child in this program receives a scholarship of NT$100,000 to 200,000. Through the recorded video, peers have the opportunity to get to know each other and respect the differences. It is also hoped that more talent can be discovered through the call for entries.
