This April, Ayala Malls is reintroducing the fun of school as it hosts an activity-packed intramurals-type event called Easter Academy, followed by a series of literacy initiatives in celebration of World Book Day at the Ayala Malls Readers Camp.

The many benefits of playing and reading are accessible to those who open their minds and welcome the world as their own personal classroom. Education is not defined by four walls; rather, it thrives among curious souls with a passion for the things and the people around them. Indeed, learning can be anywhere—and it can be in Ayala Malls.

Let’s Go Teamwork! – Run, play, and be a sport at Easter Academy

Missing the classroom, the campus, and the big open field might not have been as popular as it is today, given the fact that kids and young teens have been studying from home for two years and running. Truth is, kids, miss school!—and finally, with Alert Level 1 in place, Ayala Malls is calling all youngsters to put on their kicks and reunite with their best friends in a face-to- face setting with a fun and competitive twist on Easter Day, April 17.

Easter Academy fosters cooperative play and team spirit as it gathers kids in groups to complete challenges, including an obstacle course relay, in sports-competition mode. As the youngsters crowd the field, parents, guardians, and other non-competing children can also visit the School Fair area for their favorite snacks and nostalgic goodies. Alternately, visitors can take selfies with roaming Easter mascots, donate at toy drives, and bring furbabies to an exciting Hide & Treat activity at Barkyard.

Easter Academy is launching in the following malls: Abreeza, Alabang Town Center, Ayala Center Cebu, Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Ayala Malls Central Bloc, Ayala Malls Circuit, Ayala Malls Cloverleaf, Ayala Malls Feliz, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Ayala Malls Marikina, Ayala Malls Serin Ayala Malls Solenad, Ayala Malls The 30th, Centrio, Fairview Terraces, Glorietta, Harbor Point, Market Market, Marquee Mall, Pavilion Mall, Serendra, The District Dasmarinas,  The District Imus, and U.P. Town Center.

Reading is Achieving! – Discover the pleasure of reading at Ayala Malls Readers Camp

The spotlight now turns to reading, which serves not only as a means for learning but also as a form of entertainment, relaxation, and emotional support. In an effort to share the countless benefits of reading to men and women of all ages, Ayala Malls Readers Camp will be packed with book sales, book swaps, and reading spaces that will go on starting April 21.

Kickstarting the celebration is the much-anticipated Book-Bonanza mall-wide event in various Ayala Malls. Happening in collaboration with Biblio, National Bookstore, OMF Lit, Book Sale, Chapters and Pages, Metro, and Basa Books, new and experienced readers are welcome to try new genres and authors while browsing through a plethora of paperbacks, hardbound books, e-book gadgets, and other reading materials and offerings. Meanwhile, the Reader’s Circle is an outdoor camp-themed reading space near Book-Bonanza where visitors can finally flip the pages of their newly-acquired books, as well as listen to scheduled live reading events. Both Book Bonanza and the Reader’s Circle are ongoing from April 21 to 30.
