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.

Oplan Balik Eskwela 2016 PDF Print E-mail

All Systems Go for Oplan Balik Eskwela
by Jed I. Bete
School Media Relations Officer
Davao City NHS

Exactly a week after the launching of Brigada Eskwela 2016, public schools all over the country are now gearing-up for the Oplan Balik Eskwela which started on Monday, June 6, 2016.

altIn Davao City National High School (DCNHS), one of the biggest public secondary schools in the Division of Davao City, a big number of students together with their parents and guardians flocked to its campus at F. Torres Street for the first day of enrolment. Faculty and staff of DCNHS readily and smoothly facilitated the enrolment by conducting conferences and orientations for parents of transferees and incoming grade 7 students. Orientations are necessary to educate the parents regarding the policies and guidelines of school.

Weeks before the enrolment period, confirmation and enrolment procedures, class schedules, and the sectioning of students were already formulated as per instruction of Dr. Wenefredo E. Cagape, Principal IV of DCNHS. All these information were made available to the public through tarpaulins and the use of social media. Dr. Cagape wanted to ensure a smooth and orderly enrolment to avoid congestions and replication of problems encountered in the past.

More or less 9,000 students are expected to enrol at DCNHS for School Year 2016-2017. Dr. Cagape is challenged and overwhelmed by this large number of enrolees in DCNHS. “It is challenging and at the same time overwhelming because a lot of students chose to stay and enrol to [Davao City] City High”, Cagape said. “This only means trust and confidence from our stakeholders”, he added.

This year’s enrolment is also unique because it is the first time for DCNHS to cater the incoming grade 11 students for Senior High School in pursuance to the K to 12 Enhanced Basic Education Program. DCNHS is set to offer all Senior High School tracks except for the Sports track. As of June 6, there are already 748 students who have enrolled to Senior High School. Of the 748 enrolees, thirty (30) students chose the Arts and Design Track, 189 students opted to take Applied Business and Management (Academic Track – ABM), 131 went for Humanities and Social Sciences (Academic Track – HUMSS), 134 students for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (Academic Track – STEM), and 264 students decided to take the Technical – Vocational and Livelihood Track.

DCNHS Administration is fully aware of the emerging concerns brought by the implementation of Senior High School. But despite these ‘roadblocks’, DCNHS is able to manage these concerns by providing alternative plans and solutions. In fact, some of the existing teachers in the junior high school who have earned National Certification (NC), masters’ and doctorate degrees are assigned to teach ‘temporarily’ in the Senior High School in the incoming school year since teachers’ items for SHS are still being finalized. Available classrooms and laboratories are also maximized to cater SHS students. Moreover, private schools in Cluster 1 of this division have also placed their enrolment satellites inside the DCNHS campus to give the incoming grade 11 students more options where to pursue SHS.

The Department of Education (DepEd) has already announced through the DepEd Order No. 23 s. 2016 that the opening of classes for School Year 2016-2017 is on June 13, Monday.

For more concerns and inquiries, students and parents may contact the DCNHS Oplan Balik Eskwela hotlines (082) 227-9102 or (082) 224-1639. They may also like the official Facebook page: DCNHS Media Relations_Official or visit the official website
