My child needs to name three seas that surround the Philippines. He answered The Celebes sea, South China sea and the Arafura sea. I do not think the Arafura sea is correct and I told him to put the Philippine sea instead of the Arafura. Am I correct in telling him this?

    Yes, you are correct. There is an Arafura Sea south of New Guinea, but it does not contact the Philippines.
    The map link provided by Writeacher provides names of seas around the Philippines.

    The Sulu sea is an important one that he omitted.
