Cartoon Network, the leading kids' channel in the Philippines, through its initiative--Ben 10 Hero Academy teaches kids what they must do in certain dangerous situations. The said Ben 10-inspired activity based crash-course was filled with easy-to-learn tips where kids can learn to act wisely in different situations. The said program makes its way to Metro Manila schools from July to August 2014.
“The Ben 10 Hero Academy takes after the spirit of the hugely popular Ben 10: Omniverse series,” said Nicole Schneiderjohn, Marketing Director, Turner International Asia-Pacific, operator of Cartoon Network Asia. “In using characters like Ben Tennyson, Bloxx and Rook to communicate valuable lessons on safety, we’re able to empower kids in their daily lives through fun and adventure.”

Purple Plum Fairy recently joined Cartoon Network when they held their Ben 10 Academy program at St. Mary's Academy in Pasay, City. Through games and other dynamic activities, students aged 6 to 10 were trained in four modules:
1. Fire Safety
2. Earthquake Preparedness
3. Crime Prevention
4. Road Safety

Kids had loads of fun as they participated in various games and activities. The said event was also graced by Ronald McDonald and Zesto mascot to the delight of the kids. Best of all, they've also had that opportunity to get face time with their favorite Ben 10 characters, Bloxx and Ben Tennyson himself. In fact, during the Ben 10 Hero Academy event at St. Mary's, even the teachers couldn't resist having a photo opportunity with the cute Bloxx.
Well, I'm also guilty of such as your Purple Plum Fairy also had a photo with him. I also had a lot of fun seeing the kids with such happiness on their faces--the kind of genuine joy that money could not buy. Oh, how I wish we've also had that same fun crash course training like Ben 10 Academy during my time in grade school.
