TUBA, Benguet -- Over P1.8 million-worth of combined building and Information and communications technology (ICT) equipment project is seen to boost the performance of two public elementary schools in Camp 3.
"I am positive that it will improve the performance of the children studying in Camp 3 including nearby schools who may want to visit and use them as well," said Tuba Schools District Supervisor William Abance. He revealed the project in Camp 3 and Torre Elementary Schools could possibly improve the learning system of the students.
"Nowadays, learning is digitalized and there are ample research materials in the Internet which could complement the library," the supervisor added.
In turnover ceremonies last week, Abance and Principal of the two schools Nena Bangala symbolically accepted the keys to the newly built Home Economics building and ICT equipment from the donor, Philex Mining Corporation (PMC).
The project consists of a fully furnished Home Economics building complete with facilities including a wall-mounted flat television screen for digital learning. On the other hand, the ICT equipment consists of 15 units desktop computer, three sets of LED 40-inch televisions, two Canon Digital Camera, 13 gig Flash drives and two printer machines. Two Epson projectors, two units of sound system with microphone, amplifiers and speaker, two electronic organs and 10 DVD players were also included in the ICT set.
The project costs P1,898, 989.77 as revealed by the PMC’s Community Development Supervisor Christopher Cheno. The project is part of the corporate social responsibility of the company.
