Kindergarten on Wheels to start rolling next school year

PASIG CITY, Jan 24 -- As an initiative to help the Department of Education accommodate five-year olds in areas in Metro Manila with classroom shortage, Bagong Henerasyon Party List launches the Kindergarten on Wheels (KOW) Project, through a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with DepEd and in partnership with the Quezon City government.

In a ceremony at the President Corazon Aquino Elementary School in Batasan Hills, Quezon City, Bagong Henerasyon Party List headed by Representative Bernadette Herrera-Dy inked an agreement with DepEd, through Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC, to jointly implement the KOW Project.

Also present in the event were Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, Quezon City Schools Division Superintendent Corazon Rubio, and the principal of President Corazon Aquino Elementary School, Paul Medrano.

DepEd welcomes this innovation from Bagong Henerasyon Party List with deep appreciation especially that it continues to intensify its campaign to make education accessible to all and to provide all five-year olds with proper educational interventions in preparation for the implementation of the K to 12 program.

KOW is part of the “H.E.L.P.S.” advocacies of the Bagong Henerasyon Party List led by Representative Bernadette Herrera–Dy. “H.E.L.P.S.” which stands for Health, Education, Livelihood, People Empowerment and Sustainable Development, is part of the party list’s vision to “lead in the effort for healthy, educated, prosperous, and empowered citizens” and to “lead the fight against sickness, ignorance, poverty and indifference.”

In School Year 2012-2013, KOW will be piloted in parts of Metro Manila where classroom shortage remains a problem due to a big population of students.

DepEd will provide, among others, teachers and volunteers, enhanced curriculum guide for teachers, and initial sets of teaching and learning materials.

Bagong Henerasyon Party List meanwhile shall provide container vans/customized trucks for use as “Kindergarten on Wheels” in DepEd selected areas including the drivers and maintenance officers who shall, when needed, be present during the learning sessions and whose salaries shall be at the expense of Bagong Henerasyon.(DepEd)
