Navotas govt to train SHS students

Navoteño senior high school (SHS) students can now put into practice what they have learned following the signing of the memorandum of agreement (MoA) for their work immersion at the Navotas City Hall.

Mayor Tobias Tiangco, with Navotas Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Alejandro Ibañez, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Buenafe Sabado, Public Schools District Supervisor Editha Peregrino and principals of senior high schools in the city, signed the MoA for the Work Immersion Program on October 28.

Schools that participated included Angeles National High School, Filemon T. Lizan Senior High School, Kaunlaran High School, San Roque National High School, Tangos National High School and Governor Andres Pascual College.

Under the agreement, 210 Navoteño youth will work at the city hall until they complete the 80 hours requirement for their internship.

The students will be divided into three batches and will be assigned to work in various departments from Nov. 18, 2019 until Feb. 7, 2020.

The Work Immersion Program is one of the course requirements for graduation of senior high school students. It is one of the components of the K to 12 basic education reform program that seeks to make SHS students ready for employment.

Tiangco said the work immersion also serves as a good opportunity for Navoteño youth to experience public service and appreciate the workings of the city government.

“We want our students to gain firsthand knowledge and skills which they can use in their future employment and undertakings. The quality education that we want them to have does not end in the classrooms, it extends to the city hall and the whole community,” he said.
