MANILA, Philippines – Kumbinsido si Vice President at Education Secretary Sara Z. Duterte na dapat lang na bigyan ang mga mag-aaral ng mental wellness support para tulungan ang mga ito na makayanan ang post-pandemic transition hanggang in-person learning.

Sa idinaos na post-State of the Nation Address (SONA) forum, sinabi ni VP Sara na pinayuhan na ng Department of Education (DepEd) ang regional offices nito na gawing available ang serbisyo para sa mga mag-aaral.

“We instructed our regional offices to coordinate with their local mental health associations, in their psychiatric societies to come up with mental wellness support for our learners who for the past two years, only knew of the online classroom, and now they are transitioning to our in-person teaching,” ayon kay VP Sara.

Gayunman, siniguro naman ni VP Sara na nagbigay sila ng sapat na oras para sa mga eskuwelahan at mga mag-aaral para mag-adjust sa mandatory face-to-face learning set-up na ikakasa sa Nobyembre 2.

“We did not directly impose upon them to begin five-day in-person classes in their schools. We allowed them to conduct a blended learning mode, which is combined with in-person and distance learning,” aniya pa rin. Tinukoy nito ang set-up na pinayagan sa Agosto 22 hanggang Oktubre 31.

“I am happy to share with everyone that our enrollment for the first day was 3.3 million already, as compared to our first day of last year which was at 222,000 only,” ayon kay VP Sara.

“Continue with the counseling of unvaccinated families, particularly the unvaccinated learners, and the teaching and non-teaching staff of the Department of Education that is unvaccinated

as well. Once the counseling is successful, they initiate mobile vaccination in our schools, for those who have given their consent to be vaccinated,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Samantala, inaayos din nina VP Sara ang recovery at rebuilding plans para sa mga eskuwelahan na apektado ng bagyong Odette at Agaton.

“We started with the checking of inventory of the schools who were affected by typhoon Odette, and where they are now with their repairs and reconstructions of classrooms and buildings that were damaged by the typhoon, and we already talked to our finance department, to look for savings in the past year and this year, and request for the realignment of these savings to the repair, and reconstructions of these classrooms and buildings,” litaniya ni VP Sara.
