PIA Press Release

Eastern Samar Division's OPLAN Balik Eskwela a success

By Alice Nicart

Borongan City (2 June) -- Never has it been before when Eastern Samar School's Division ranked high in the Balik-Eskwela movement in the entire Region.

Thus said Abelardo G. Campani, Regional PES Supervisor in his message during the Inter-Agency Convergence Meeting recently.

Campani was referring to CY 2007-2008 Multi-Awarded Eastern Samar Division OPLAN Balik-Eskwela. This, he attributes to the willingness and cooperation being demonstrated by parents and stakeholders in the province.

As he spoke again before a host of stakeholders in the forum, the DepEd Regional Supervisor predicted once more that the ES Division will again grab the top awards comes the Evaluation period. He added that in 2007, Eastern Samar ranked 1st in community volunteers which was pegged at 169.008.

Dr. Nina Villalon, School Division Superintedent, together with the rest of the supervisors and principals present were elated at the good news saying their efforts paid off.

Asked why "Balik Eskwela", Villalon was articulate to say that this is the time when DepEd with the help of the community move together to encourage children go back to school and we entice them to remain in school and prevent them from dropping. Thus, everybody should prepare children, emotionally, physically and mentally.

Villalon reported that children could hardly buy some important things for them, and with the news of the dreaded AH1N1, the supervisor expressed concern over the need for handkerchiefs which many pupils do not have.

Thus for their commitment, Dr. Inigo Evardone who spoke for Gov. Ben Evardone pledged to donate P20,000.00 for the procurement of handkerchiefs for children.

The Inter-Agency Convergence held solicited the commitment of various government agencies for the successful implementation of DepEd programs. It was participated in by DOH, PNP, PIA, DILG, DPWH, LTO, GOVERNOR'S OFFICE and Radyo ng Bayan- DYES, 17-Distric Supervisors, 15 high school principals and Division Office Personnel.
