PIA Press Release

It's back to school time in Capiz

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (3 June) -- With the week-long thorough preparation of schools in Capiz, the Department of Education (DepEd) formally started its classes last June 1.

According to Schools Division Superintendent Eveleth Gamboa, all classes in the public schools begun last Monday as almost all target elementary pupils have already been enrolled in school.

Gamboa, however, said that while classes also started in the public high schools in the province, there are still students who are enrolling.

She said that the opening of classes was not interrupted by the conduct of clean-up activities because of the one week Brigada Eskwela which has gained the support of more parents, civic and private sector as well as other government agencies like members of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

They are also imposing the "no-collection" policy of the government upon enrollment, Gamboa said, adding that the wearing of uniform for students is also optional.

Earlier, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo spearheaded the launching of this year's nationwide preparedness program at the DepEd central office for the June opening of classes.

Dubbed as "Oplan Balik Eskwela," the annual campaign was launched in 2005 to ensure the orderly enrollment and opening of classes.

Meanwhile, Gamboa is confident that they will improve the participation rate of students this school year with the implementation of their local initiatives like the provision of free school supplies to grade I pupils who enrolled in the designated dates. (PIA) [top]
