As a province that champions quality and inclusive education, the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) expresses its support to the Brigada Eskwela Program of the Department of Education (DepEd), in preparation for the opening of classes for S.Y 2020-2021.
There is no doubt that the pandemic continues to challenge all of us. However, we at the PGIN remains relentless in advancing education in the province by maintaining its high enrollment rate, providing skills enhancement opportunities, and giving online lectures. Notably, we have been participating in the previous versions of the Brigada Eskwela through distributing computers, awarding scholarships, and conducting community learning programs.
As such, we once again pledge our cooperation in implementing necessary protocols and ensuring every school is well-protected. We will be closely working with the local government units (LGUs) to keep our students, teachers, and staff safe from the threats of the disease.
Despite the difficulties of distant and technology-assisted learning methods, we will all collaborate in order to give the best education possible. In our small way, we will help our students in working towards their goals. Together, we will overcome this crisis and see a brighter future for all.
