PIA Press Release

Region 8 charts orderly, peaceful, rain-less school opening

Tacloban City (2 June) -- Schools in Region 8 opened in a smooth and orderly manner, with a matching very good weather.

No unusual congestion of traffic was observed and true enough help desks and Police assistance centers were set up in strategic schools. Police visibility was implemented to deter unscrupulous persons from victimizing the students.

In most schools, Flag raising ceremonies were conducted with guests from the Regional Monitoring teams. This was followed by the orientation which included among others, the dreaded H1N1 virus.

A class adviser from one of the biggest public schools in the Region said that the schools and classrooms were already ready and clean, so the conduct of orientations and classes were immediately effected.

Several radio commentators remarked that the opening of classes this year will be recorded as one of the most successful. Nobody called up the radio stations for any complaints related to the opening of classes.

This is a manifestation that the Department of Education’s strategies and measures set in place for a smooth opening of classes were successfully implemented.

Ten teams from the DepEd Regional Office were assigned to the different divisions to determine the readiness of the schools. In fact, other teams were already trying to determine which school is the most ready.

An increase in the enrollment of students in public schools is apparent as there are transferees from other places of the country and even from the private schools.

The Department of Education in Region 8 continues to advocate for more enrollees especially from among the school drop outs, pursuant to the Education for All program. (PIA 8) [top]
