La­ban­gon school gets e-learn­ing cen­ter from Veco

Cebu Daily News - - COMMUNITY -

La­ban­gon Ele­men­tary School grade six stu­dents Blanch Marie Luage and Hy­acinth Mari Di­tan share the same pas­sion in read­ing. The two are best friends and are vy­ing for hon­ors in their grad­u­at­ing class.

Blanch and Hy­acinth be­lieve that read­ing em­pow­ers them, ac­ti­vates their imag­i­na­tion and brings them to the dif­fer­ent places they read about.

The early Christ­mas gifts of the Visayan Elec­tric Co. (Veco) and Aboitiz Foun­da­tion Inc. (AFI) to La­ban­gon Ele­men­tary School will make read­ing and learn­ing all the more ex­cit­ing for stu­dents like Blanch and Hy­acinth.

Last De­cem­ber 4, Veco and Aboitiz Foun­da­tion of­fi­cially turned over to the school a newly-built e-learn­ing cen­ter.

Veco and AFI trans­formed an old con­tainer van do­nated by Gothong South­ern Ship­ping Lines into a learn­ing space equipped with iPads, an Ap­ple TV and a 50-inch LED TV. The school also pro­vided books as their coun­ter­part for the project.

The e-learn­ing cen­ter is strate­gi­cally lo­cated un­der the trees so the stu­dents can en­joy the fresh air while study­ing.

Veco Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer An­ton Mari Perdices urged stu­dents and the school ad­min­is­tra­tion to fully uti­lize the fa­cil­ity and use it to im­prove the per­for­mance of the stu­dents.

Cebu City Schools Di- vi­sion Su­per­in­ten­dent Dr. Bian­ito Da­gatan, mean­while, thanked Veco for be­ing a part­ner in im­prov­ing the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem in the coun­try. He also chal­lenged the stu­dents and the school ad­min­is­tra­tion to use the tools given by Veco and AFI to im­prove aca­demic per­for­mance.

The e-learn­ing cen­ter is Veco’s third project for La­ban­gon Ele­men­tary School. In 2010, Veco do­nated a three-storey, three-class­room build­ing and in 2017, Veco also up­graded the elec­tri­cal wiring of the school.

The cen­ter is the sec­ond e-learn­ing cen­ter that Veco and AFI cre­ated for DepEd. In 2016, Veco and AFI also do­nated an e-learn­ing cen­ter to Mabolo Ele­men­tary School.
