DepEd Davao Kadayawan Float: A Winning Debut Entry PDF Print E-mail

By: Edmund Superada

altWhile the marching mandate for the Department of Education (DepEd) is accessibility and continuous improvement of the quality of basic education, it has likewise embraced the responsibility towards the preservation and protection of the environment and indigenous culture.
As a public learning institution, DepEd sees the importance of a balanced and livable habitat as one of the contributing factors of efficient and effective learning. Environmental degradation and a slowly waning Filipino culture and traditions have become a growing concern as the country slowly inches closer towards the modern era.

This premise prompted DepEd Davao City Division, for the very first time, to answer the call for participation in the Pamulak Kadayawan, a contest of well ornamented floats featuring the bountiful flora and fauna of the city with the entry title: K3K – K-12 Para sa Kinaiyahan, Kultura, og Kaugmaon.

As a profound way of educating the people of their cultural heritage and topography, the said government agency poured their best efforts headed by Dr. Maria Ines Asuncion, Schools Division Superintendent, together with the dynamic Public Schools District Supervisors Chairman Dr. Wenefredo Cagape, Dr. Johnito Galan, and Dr. Filipinas Samblingo, and Edmund Superada, Float Designer and Production In-charge.

The intricate design elements and the masterful craftsmanship paved the way for Silver Award besting other 20 entries in Gamay Category in this year’s Kadayawan sa Davao floral float parade.

The flaming torch boded the dissipation of the darkness of ignorance which is believed to be the root cause of our worsening environment and fading identity as true Filipinos. The mountain and waterfalls show the perfect landscape the city could offer. The plants and flowers signify the lush vegetation that is undeniably beyond compare.
The float depicts the DepEd’s K-12 Curriculum, blended with cultural and biodiversity, as well as a representation of the harmonious co-existence of the tri-people of Davao and Mindanao in a shared environment. The symbolism characterized by the Kindergarten for Elementary, the Junior High School, and the Senior High School, representing the 4 Tracks of Senior High School portrayed to be in the frontline as DepEd extends its share in the effort to preserve, and promote Philippine culture and the arts, as well as the seemingly endless struggle to safeguard our threatened environment.

The DepEd Davao City Division’s participation spelled out the magnanimous support to the city government towards its worthwhile initiatives that truly raise the level of cultural and environmental awareness which leads to developing stronger, more united and resilient Davaoenos, ever ready for the challenges ahead.

He was mentored by veteran coach Brian Caintic, a Social Studies teacher.

    On the other hand, City High’s entry to Tunog Kadayawan bagged the third place and People’s Choice Award coached by Elena Gementiza and Eddie Cadelenia at Abreeza Mall on the same date while the school’s pride in Visual Arts, an SPA student, grabbed the second place in Mugna Kadayawan.

launching of 'Brigada Eskwela 2017' in Davao City PDF Print E-mail

Over 5,000 students, parents and representatives from the government and the private sector joined the launching of the 2017 "Brigada Eskwela" at the Calinan Senior High School in Calinan District here on Monday.

titleHighlighting the activity is the distribution of financial assistance from the Philippine Public School Teachers Association (PPSTA) and the ceremonial turnover of 2,130 T-shirts from Habitat for Humanity Philippines to be distributed to all Division ES (elementary school) or HS (high school) Brigada Coordinators in Region XI (Davao Region). Also to be conducted during the day is the Launching of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools (WinS) Program and the Signing of memorandum of agreement (MOA) with DOST (Department of Science and Technology) on the project called Starbooks.

Led by Education Undersecretary for Finance Victoria Catibog, the six-day Brigada Eskwela kicked off in public elementary and secondary or high schools across the country in preparation for the opening of classes in June.

Jenielito Atillo, Department of Education (DepEd) XI spokesperson, said the launching of Brigada Eskwela at the Calinan Senior High School also aims to convey the message that senior high school has taken off nationwide.

This year marks the full implementation of the K-12 system because there are already entrants to Grade 12, he said.

altThere are 297 public schools and 189 private institutions offering senior high school curriculum in the region, with Atillo saying the number is expected to increase given the number of applications pending for DepEd’s approval.

Atillo said there are 66,986 senior high school students in the Davao Region.

With this year’s theme, "Isang DepEd, Isang Pamayanan, Isang Bayanihan Para sa Handa at Ligtas na Paaralan," Usec. Catibog underscored the efforts and resources pooled from all sectors.

She said the cooperation of the whole community is for the sake of the children.

“This is not simply (about) attendance but the message here is we are preparing the school for the future of the children. I think the private sector also touches the hearts of everyone that we are doing this for we value education," Atillo said.

altAtillo pointed out that children, parents and other stakeholders sacrificed their time, talent and skills even just for a few minutes.

Brigada Eskwela, or the national schools' maintenance week, aims to bring together all education stakeholders to participate and contribute their time, effort and resources to prepare public school facilities in time for the opening of the new school year.
