The Department of Education – San Carlos Division thru the Congressman Vicente Gustilo Sr. Memorial School (CVGSMS) and City Social Welfare and Development Office officially launched its Module Pantry for Fire Victim primary students this morning, September 13 at Barangay 6 Covered Court.
Anthony H. Liobet, CESO VI and Schools Division Superintendent, commended the school head, teachers and staffs of CVGSMS for reaching out to their students not just during this pandemic but also after the fire incident in Parola.
Liobet mentioned that he plans on regrouping all the schools and look for ways in order to extend more help to student fire victims. He also encouraged the students to do better for their future and listen to their teachers in order to be consistent with their modules.
Said module pantry served the family of student fire victims by bringing the modules to the evacuation centers and not the parents coming to the schools to get said modules.
Jose Junjun Andebor, Principal II of CVGSMS said that the teachers of the school came up with said module pantry upon hearing the various suggestions of parents. He added that they will organize thoroughly the program since this was just instinctive proposal by the teachers which the DepEd – San Carlos agreed.
Dr. Maria Carla Romanillos, Public Schools District Supervisor of District II said that aside from their current Module Pantry which will also be made as a study area situated in Barangay 6 Covered Court, they also plan to place another module pantry in Regional Evacuation Center (REC) in Margarita Village where half of the fire victims where currently staying.
She added that they will choose one parent leader in Brgy. 6 Covered Court and another parent leader in REC with good heart and patience to help facilitate the program and represent the parents and guardians of students since most of the parents are busy with their daily sustenance and to get back on their feet after their losses.
Sheila Espinosa, Mobile Education for Street Children of CSWDO was assigned in facilitating the program everyday together with the chosen teachers from CVGSMS.
After the opening program, the teachers and staffs of CVGSMS together with Liobet, Romanillos, Cynthia Mirande, CSWD Officer and Barangay 6 Kagawad Grima Rabacal, Chairperson of Committee on Education handed out the modules to 86 affected students of Parola with relief goods donated by the teachers and other stakeholders.
