PISAY EVC OFFERS NCE ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM FOR JARO DISTRICTS
To prepare for the National Competitive Examination set on October 12, 2013, Philippine Science High School Eastern Visayas Campus conducted an Enhancement Program in Jaro, Leyte.
Fifty top performing pupils coming from 28 schools participated in the “Tulong Dunong Program” on August 17- September 14, 2013 held in Hibucawan Elementary School.
“This outreach program is intended to conduct enrichment sessions to Grade 6 pupils who have the potential to excel in Science and Mathematics,” Engr. Joan de la Cruz, the project coordinator, said.
Based on the result of the examinations, fewer qualifiers come from the remote barangays especially in Jaro District. Dr. Reynaldo B. Garnace, the Campus Director and project leader, emphasized that “This project aims to increase the number of passers of the NCE from the district.”
Dr. Josette T. Biyo, the Executive Director of PSHS System, visited the recipients of the program last September 14, 2013. She challenged the pupils to strive hard to pass the examination so that they can enter the PSHS System, gain quality education, and live a better life for their respective families and the country.”
“I am glad and honored that the PSHS EVC partnered with us in order to enhance the skills of our pupils and prepare for the NCE,” Mr. Beltran P. Beltran, the principal of Hibucawan Elementary School, remarked in the short program.
Mr. Edgar L. Cativo, the Jaro II District Science Coordinator/NCE Enhancement Program Co-Coordinator, expressed his profound gratitude to the school for accommodating the request to pursue the outreach program. “We are indebted to the school for granting our request,” he stressed. He further requested to have three more sessions with the top 25 takers based on the results of the post tests which Dr. Garnace responded positively. .
Dr. Garnace, in his closing message, expressed his appreciation to Dr. Biyo for gracing the occasion; to the members of the faculty of PSHS EVC for their wholehearted support to the outreach program, and to all the stakeholders of the Jaro Districts for their dynamic participation. “All these we do for the fulfillment of the dreams of our children,” he ended.
