The holistic growth for learners is a crucial factor in realizing the need to raise the standards of our public schools to cope up with the curriculum standards for K-12 schools in the Philippines. This was one of the basic priorities DepEd had been putting effort into filling up that need. As the curriculum had been upgraded and now is being implemented aptly, the development of facilities to answer this need is utmost important.
Thanks to the different stakeholders and supporters of our education system, the help is getting its momentum. Let me share the new report that DepEd is sharing in view of this.
The Turkish International Cooperation and Development (TIKA) donated computer packages to the Department of Education to boost the computerization program in schools nationwide. An initial donation of 36 computer packages, seven (7) printers, and five (5) laptops were given to Justo Lukban Elementary School.
DepEd Secretary Br. Armin Luistro FSC extended his gratitude to TIKA for their continuous support in providing technical assistance to our schools.
Turkey Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan led the ceremonial turnover at the said school.
Prior to this donation, TIKA had also turned-over tablets last year to assist in recovering school records and DepEd office documents ravaged by Super Typhoon Yolanda. The 40 tablets were intended to speed up the process of salvaging soaked, soiled, and destroyed documents.
