Ac­cord­ing to DepEd-3 OIC-Di­rec­tor Mal­colm Garma, rec­og­niz­ing and giv­ing awards to teach­ers who have ex­em­plary achieve­ments, com­mit­ment, and pas­sion is one way to up­lift the wel­fare of pub­lic school teach­ers. At the same time, rec­og­niz­ing the out­stand­ing per­for­mances of non-teach­ing per­son­nel in schools and in the var­i­ous di­vi­sion of­fices of DepEd in Cen­tral Lu­zon is also an ef­fort to en­sure qual­ity ser­vice that will also ben­e­fit the t each er s.

“In turn, we can serve our teach­ers bet­ter in the hope that they will also teach bet­ter, thus mak­ing our schools bet­ter,” Garma added.
