On the same day, 43 public schools comprised of 25 new school recipients and 18 previous school recipients, with a total of 129 elementary school teachers and administrators attended the Teachers’ training on the utilization of ETV (Education on Television) package.
The turn over ceremony which happened last January 28, 2014, was held at the Department of Education-Nueva Vizcaya Division Office. The ETV will be utilized for the teachers’ training and primarily to supplement classroom lessons.
The ceremony was honored by the following speakers and guests, TYKFI Representatives Mr. Philip Sing, Mr. Jonathan Anuma and Ms. Flora Lim, Nueva Vizcaya Gov. Ruth R. Padilla, Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Benjamin Paragas, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Dra. Gloria Gallardo, EPS in Aralin Panlipunan Ms. Evelyn Ramos and other participants from the Department of Education (DepEd), Trainer and Board of Professional Regulatory Commission Dr. Milagros Ibe and ABS-CBN Representative Ms. Cherry Villafuerte.
Gov. Ruth Padilla pointed the direct positive effect of the educational materials to the NAT scores, also quoting Mr. Philip Sing (TYKFI), “When they started donating and providing educational materials tumaas ang NAT, sabi ni Mr. Sing ‘kung yan naman pala ang epekto nung unang binigay namin dapat lang na ituloy tuloy ko’ at wala silang pagdadawalang isip sa pagbibigay ng suporta sa edukasyon sa ating probinsya”.
The positive effect on the NAT scores is not surprising as the teachers observed that, “the learners are motivated to come to school every day thus lessening tardiness and absenteeism resulting to increase in participation and achievement,” this is according to Milagros Duwe-e/ Raquelida Canayan, Teacher III from Kasibu East Central School. “The project will also improve our indicators like participation rate, enrolment rate and survival rate. It will also decrease our dropout rate absenteeism and tardiness,” said Olivia Brazil, Principal I, Paquet Elementary School.
The governor re-emphasized the TYKFI chairman’s beliefs, “yun pong paniniwala ni Dr. Lucio Tan na ‘ang edukasyon ay makapagbibigay ng malaking daan para sa tagumpay ng isang indibidwal’. Kaya tuluy-tuloy po ito at ito rin po ay namana niya sa kanyang mahal na ina kaya po ang mga eskwelahan ay ipinangalan sa kanyang mahal na ina sapagkat simpleng ina, subalit yun po ang kanyang paniniwala sa edukasyon.”
“The project will help us in many ways. First, it gives us the opportunity to cope up with technology. Secondly, it gives us a tool to reach out to the need of pupils to be exposed in things/lessons that are not easy to explain. Most of all, it will help a lot in making the teaching- learning more effective and meaningful.”—Marifi A. Mabasa, Teacher III, BETI Elementary School
“[The ETV package] supplements educational materials in the school. They are musically and visually interesting that they enhance and heighten the impact of lessons/concepts presented.”—Cecilia G. Alafriz, Principal I, Bone North Elementary School
“The basic concepts when made clear to a child will help him/her understand easily lessons on the succeeding levels making him/her productive in his little ways. Contributes to quality education.” —Marly E. Oliano, Teacher I, TanYan Kee Elementary School
“[To sustain the project] teachers, school officials and people concern especially the pupils should be taught on how to take good care of the packages, these must be treasured most. Use with care and love. TV and DVD player should be repaired replaced of broken or damaged.”—Eddie D. Tumacder, Principal, Balete Elementary School
