Regional schools to get award from DepEd for best practices


THE DEPARTMENT of Education recognized different school in the region for their efforts to implement different programs that benefit the students.

Dr. Warlito E. Hua, DepEd education support and services division chief, said that the schools will be awarded based on the implementa­tion of Brigada Eskwela, school-based feeding programs, disaster risk reduction management (DRRM), and other services.

“This grand event will give due recognitio­n and appreciati­on for all the efforts of partnershi­ps and of all major projects and programs in the DepEd,” he said.

The Brigada Eskwela gained a total of 1,227,379 volunteers as of 2019. This has become one of DepEd’s initiative­s in enjoining local communitie­s to respond to the needs of public schools and improving basic education.

The DRRM, which was included in the educationa­l framework, becomes the school’s bible in emergency

preparedne­ss in times of natural and man-made calamities.

As of 2019, the DepEd recorded 77,745 beneficiar­ies of the different school-based feeding programs.

“We have awardees from Digos and Davao del Sur. Even before the earthquake, they’ve been observing proper practices. They were one with the best implementi­ng schools for Brigada Eskwela,” he also said.

Various schools in the region have conducted health in nutrition programs and dental services.

Schools in Digos City and Davao del Sur were also awarded as DRRM best implementi­ng schools for observing proper practices of risk reduction in their schools. “Schools are very prepared for this, even before the calamity,” he said.
