Borongan City Mayor Agda donates heavy duty copier for DepEd’s modules
BORONGAN CITY, Oct. 9 (PIA) — Borongan City Mayor Jose Ivan Dayan C. Agda said that Borongan City donated five new heavy duty photocopier and 500 reams of bond paper to the City Schools Division Office for the reproduction of learning modules.
This was his reply when PNA reporter Sarwell Meniano asked about his support to DepEd at the Network Briefing News on October 9, hosted by PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar.
Mayor Agda said that aside from the materials and equipment donated, he also hired 61 teacher -facilitators.
“This move of the City Government of Borongan was highly praised by DepEd VIII Regional Director Dr. Ramir Uytico,” said Division Supt. Bernardo Adina.
Uytico praised the local chief executive as this LGU initiative is unique.
The teacher-facilitators will serve as support system of the regular teachers and the parents.
But despite the massive support Agda extended to DepEd in the modular learning system, the chief executive still would prefer the face-to-face classes, considering that Borongan City remains COVID-19 free as of this time. (nbq/SDC/PIA-E. Samar)
