September 1, 2022 – The Department of Education (DepEd) lauds the Schools Division of Aurora and the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ 91st Infantry Battalion (91IB) in forging a pact to launch an information awareness campaign against the recruitment and infiltration of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) among learners in the province.

Providing information and education to the youth about local armed conflict is a critical step to keep them from being deceived and recruited by terrorists and communists.

The effort of SDO Aurora and 91IB in establishing a whole-of-nation approach to address the root causes of the armed conflict is worthy of emulation by more educational institutions in the country.

We trust that our schools and their partners will efficiently implement the information campaign while still adhering to the Department’s policies on gender sensitivity, safety, and peacebuilding, among others.

Patuloy nating alagaan ang kabatang Pilipino.

Patuloy nating mahalin ang Pilipinas.


Daghang Salamat.



Hon. Sara Z. Duterte

Vice President and

Secretary of the Department of Education
