12 May 2024 – The Department of Education (DepEd) extends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of a Grade 10 learner of Maasin, Iloilo, who sadly passed away last May 10.

The Child Protection Committee of the said school is set to conduct psychosocial interventions for affected peers and teachers close to the said learner.

The concerned school shall likewise coordinate with the appropriate authorities on the matter.

In the meantime, while we wait for the official police report and findings, we appeal to the public to refrain from spreading unconfirmed narratives as a sign of respect for the family in this time of grief.

Thank you.
