In preparation for School Year 2014-15, Cebuana Lhuillier participated in the Brigada Eskwela kick off organized by San Manuel High School (SMHS) in Tarlac City on May 19.
Emphasizing the value of working together, the school, headed by principal Mr. Wilfredo Paras, gathered volunteer faculty, students, parents, and representatives from local government units and private sectors for the week-long cleaning and refurbishment of the school campus.
Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. (CLFI) as one of the school’s stakeholders, took charge of repainting the wall of the “Ang Galing Mo Bata!” (AGMB) ICT Laboratory and the repair of defective computer units.
Before the volunteers started with their respective tasks, CLFI took the opportunity to recognize senior students of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Education Program by awarding them with certificates. Meanwhile, top ICT students also received medals awarded by CLFI Executive Trustee Atty. Cesar Vidal.
SMHS has been a partner of CLFI in the ICT Education Program for junior and senior high school students since 2006. The partnership continues to flourish as the school has been chosen as one of the sites for the DepEd- Cebuana Lhuillier Community Learning Centers. Using the facilities of the existing AGMB ICT laboratory, it will be formally launched soon as an E-eskwela learning facility. Atty. Vidal took the opportunity to invite potential students who want to enroll in the said DepEd – Cebuana Lhuillier ALS Community Learning Center, which is intended for out-of-school youth and adults.
