Sun.Star Pampanga - - IN CAMPUS! PERSPECTIVE! -

The Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion (DepEd) and Project Saysay, (PSaysay) Inc. en­tered into a part­ner­ship for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the “DepEd Se­ries” through the sign­ing of a Mem­o­ran­dum of Agree­ment (MOA) at the Of­fice of the Sec­re­tary on Fe­bru­ary 7.

The “DepEd Se­ries” aims to pro­vide and dis­trib­ute qual­ity posters show­cas­ing state­ments of notable Filipinos, in­clud­ing Na­tional Artists, Na­tional Sci­en­tists, no­ble states­men, and out­stand­ing ed­u­ca­tors.

“This is beau­ti­ful. We need more out­puts, es­pe­cially on ar­eas where we have been de­bat­ing on mat­ters of Philip­pine his­tory. We need more knowl­edge,” DepEd Sec­re­tary Leonor Mag­to­lis Bri­ones shared while brows­ing through some of the posters.

D e p E d Un­der­sec­re­tary for Leg­isla­tive Af­fairs, Ex­ter­nal Part­ner­ships, and School Sports Ton­isito Umali, Esq. also ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to the part­ners for this un­der­tak­ing: “Part­ner­ship has al­ways been an im­por­tant par­a­digm for DepEd in de­liv­er­ing qual­ity ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion, achiev­ing our goals, and per­form­ing our ser­vices to our chil­dren.”

The MOA was signed by Bri­ones and PSaysay Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Ian Christo­pher Al­fonso with Umali and Philip­pine His­tor­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion (PHA) of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing Pres­i­dent Ma. Luisa Ca­m­a­gay and Vice Pres­i­dent Fer­nando San­ti­ago Jr. as wit­nesses.

The project tar­gets to dis­trib­ute 21,000 posters, for free, to se­lected Philip­pine ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion schools, in­sti­tu­tions, and of­fices by 2021.

In clos­ing, Bri­ones thanked PSaysay for go­ing one step fur­ther in sup­port­ing the Pres­i­dent and the Ex­ec­u­tive Sec­re­taries’ ad­vo­cacy, through Mem­o­ran­dum Cir­cu­lar No. 25 signed last Septem­ber 15, 2017, to do away with pho­tos of of­fi­cials, and put up im­ages of he­roes in­stead.
