SANTA CRUZ, Davao del Sur: Teachers of Almendras Elementary School in this municipality are readying their 600 students to embrace the world of digital technologies by including computer subjects in their curriculum.
To help this school produce future-ready students, Hedcor Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the AboitizPower Corporation, donated ten new computer units that will be used to educate pupils under K-12 Program on the basics of Information Technology that aims to support Department of Education’s (DepEd) Computerization Program.
“We are delighted with Hedcor for being a consistent partner of DepEd in increasing the achievement of the literacy levels of our children. Utilizing the advanced feature of computers will prepare our children to face the future with confidence and awareness of digital technologies,” said DepEd Division-Education Program Supervisor Christopher Felipe.
The promotion of computer literacy for the beneficiaries extends to the teachers of the school through Hedcor’s Labor-Management Cooperation.
During the handing over of the computers, some volunteers from the company conducted orientation and workshop for the teachers on software application and firewall security access to enhance their teaching-learning process.
Last year, the same school received six brand new classrooms from Hedcor, set of school supplies provided for the students during the start of classes and some hygiene kits to campaign a good oral health and brighter smiles for kids.
Santa Cruz is the home of Hedcor’s four run-of-river Sibulan and Tudaya hydropower plants with a total capacity of 56 megawatts supplying the franchise areas of Davao Light and Power Company and Davao del Sur Electric Cooperative.
