By Rose Palacio

Davao City (12 August) -- Computers donated by Davao 2nd district representative Vincent Garcia are very useful to our students in the secondary levels, said Education XI Director Diamar Kadon.

The computers donated by Congressman Garcia under the Personal Computers for Public Schools (PCPS) was in coordination with the Department of Trade and Industry. The Phase 1 of computers project (which are now in used) benefited high school students from Bustamante National High School in Tibungco; Bangoy National High School at Sasa; Pablo Lorenzo Nat'l High School in Mandug; and Bernardo Carpio Nat'l Hi-school in Buhangin - all in District two.

The second phase PCPS project which was turned-over later part of last year was for the students of Cabantian National Hi-school . The turn- over was attended by DTI City Director Lou Pasawa, Education City Schools Supt. Gloria Labor, Fidel Japos of DepED regional office, Nelma Lyn Bamija of Cabantian Nat'l Hi-school; Brgy Capt. Lawyer Joji Jude Lumanog; PTCA vice president Lorna Lastrella and Josette Muslog, PTCA treasurer; and other barangay leaders.

Director Kadon said, the education department is grateful to Davao leaders like Congressman Garcia who are supportive of the needs of the schools in Davao City. He likewise lauded the additional school building donated by the Davao Light and Power Company.

"This is also in consonance of the call of the administration for non-government organizations and business entities to provide assistance to our education department that needs facilities like computers, classrooms, buildings, chairs and other needed equipments", Director Kadon said.

PCPS project was first launched during the incumbency of former DTI Secretary Mar Roxcas, (now Senator) which was funded by the government of Japan's Non-Project Grant-Aid.

Computers under PCPS are now being used by 282,364 public high school students who were provided at least 17.33 hours a week of hands-on Information Technology (IT) training nationwide. It also trained 20,093 teachers on the use of computers and the Internet as tools for teaching technology, science and mathematics in the country.

Congressman Garcia donated these computers to various public schools in Davao City (under PCPS project) to enhance information technology competencies of students and create an IT culture in Philippine classrooms through the distribution of computer packages to the different public schools.
