The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines donated computer tablets and projectors to elementary schools in Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental in a turnover ceremony held Sept. 30
G.L. Reyes-Anhawon Elementary School (ES) in Bulua, Cagayan de Oro, and Sta. Ana ES, Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental each received 15 units of tablet, one LCD projector and a HDMI.
NGCP Mindanao Operation and Maintenance Regional Head Emmanuel D. Abellanosa and Mae Roselle L. Curiano, regional corporate communications and public affairs officer delivered the tablets and the projectors to the recipient schools.
Abellanosa said the donation was part of the NGCP corporate social responsibility projects for education.
“The donation aims to make the students in public schools become more competitive and abreast with the trend in technology,” he said.
NGCP, the operator of the country’s power transmission network, recognized the vital role of education in nation building and is willing to promote educational programs in partnership with power customers, local government units and other government agencies to contribute to the country’s social and economic development, Abellanosa further said.
He likewise urged parents, teachers, and the community in general to help in the protection of NGCP assets.
Along with the granting of tablets and projectors, NGCP will provide the two schools an access to the Digital Literacy and Teaching with Technology (TwT) Curriculum of Microsoft Philippines, a 36-hour online course aligned with the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers.
NGCP will also provide a face-to-face training on “Microsoft in the Classroom,” an 8-hour course that covers how to maximize Windows and Office in the classroom and other applicable programs related to 21st century skills teaching and learning.
Parents and faculty members of the schools thanked NGCP for the donation.
NGCP operations, transmission line safety reminders and key provisions of Republic Act 7832 or the Anti-Pilferage Act were also discussed during the turnover ceremony as part of NGCP’s continuing advocacy to safeguard the welfare of the community against any untoward incidents. (EOR/PIA10)
