Premier public school in Davao City receives equipment for module production

DCNHS, DepEd officials and Davao Light President and COO Rodger Velasco photocopy a school module using the donated equipment during the turnover ceremony.

Davao City National High School (DCNHS) received equipment and supplies for module production from Davao Light and Power Co. Inc. and Aboitiz Foundation Inc. The turnover ceremony was held at the school’s gymnasium on March 21, 2022 and was witnessed by excited teachers who are also launching the first day of limited face-to-face classes.

“We are glad that DepEd is already expanding the limited face-to-face classes which started today. Yet, DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones also mentioned that it will not be fully face-to-face yet and blended learning will still continue,” Rodger Velasco, President and COO of Davao Light said.

Davao City Councilor Pilar Braga, Committee Chair on Education, Science and Technology, Arts and Culture also said, “We will continue making modules because we are not totally and completely opening our schools [for] face-to-face classes.” This year, the number of enrollees of DCNHS ballooned which will cause shortage of classrooms when face-to-face classes fully resume.

“When we talk about the Adopt-A-School program and its achievements, Davao Light and Power Co. Inc. and Aboitiz Foundation Inc. are our top-notch partners,” DepEd XI Asst. Regional Director Ma. Ines Asuncion said in her speech.

The project includes a photocopying machine, two printers, nine laptops with accessories for online learning, and several boxes of office supplies. The same equipment and office supplies were also donated to other public schools in Davao City such as Sta. Ana Elementary School and Mintal Comprehensive National High School.

“Davao Light is a company who makes things happen. They make sure that they see through with their promises,” Edgar Te, President of the School Governing Council thanks Davao Light.

“Trust that we will push on with our goal of shaping the minds of our students who will be the future leaders of this country,” Evelyn Magno, Principal of DCNHS said.

Davao Light, along with Aboitiz Foundation and Manila Water Foundation previously donated a handwashing facility to DCNHS last October 28, 2021. The school is also a former beneficiary of the e.Lab project. Davao Light promises to continue to support the school in their future projects.
