In service of the community, the College of Education Training Department (CETD) immersed to Blala Elementary School. CETD formalized its launching of adopt-a-school program anchored on the framework of Global Citizenship Education (GCED).
Four CETD faculty teachers and the school nurse accompanied 15 students in behalf of the Supreme Students’ Government (SSG), Red Cross Youth (RCY), and Girl Scouts of the Philippines (GSP). They traversed the mountainous Sitio Blala, Barangay San Jose last February 16, 2019 to distribute the gifts to 100 plus households with 80 pupils“Our goal is to help nurture these children to assume active roles in building inclusive and peaceful communities,” CETD School Director Ms. Esmaida H. Andang explained.
The outreach program consisted of adopt-a-tree, parenting and guidance and counseling, general health and sanitation awareness, and distribution of blessings to the families.
This tremendous effort in partnership with the Blala Elementary School teachers led by Mr. Aurelio C. Cortel Jr., Principal I, will continue to address the need for social transformation and sustainable development of the sitio.
