PES – Central’s Kariton Klasrum now rolling
Parañaque Elementary School- Central (PES- Central) was among the chosen schools to implement KARITON KLASRUM, an advocacy program of the Department of Education which aims to promote literacy and provide alternative learning opportunities to children at risk on the street (CAROTS) from ages 4 to 9.
DepEd NCR funded and provided the push cart, school supplies, first-aid kits, and other hygienic freebies for the learners while the PES-Central’s Kariton Klasrum facilitators tapped the Supervisors, school leaders and volunteer teachers for food provision. The non-teaching personnel extended their helping hands in maintaining the cleanliness of the learning area and watched the safety of the learners, teachers and the “kariton” as well.
Seven volunteer teachers/ facilitators headed by Mrs. Angelica A. Libera, Education Supervisor for Alternative Learning System (ALS) went on a house-to-house visitation to recruit learners. Through the support of Brgy. Kagawad Erlinda Calazan, the program was disseminated in the entire San Dionisio community. Informed parents eagerly sent their children to learn, love and appreciate learning more.
