MALUNGON, Sarangani (July 8, 2009) – The town’s performance and implementation of Quality Education for Sarangani Today (QUEST) project has been gaining more assistance from the private sector.

In his state of education address at the QUEST’s Education Road Show and Summit Tuesday (July 7), Mayor Reynaldo Constantino lauded private sector-partnership by the local government in uplifting their children’s education.

“However, looking carefully at the school’s unique and difficult situations and circumstances, it’s totally a different story,” Constantino said.

But Governor Migs Dominguez and the provincial government committed to provide an additional 50 provincial-paid teachers “to ensure that education reaches the town’s farthest schools”.

“Our promise is never to leave a single child behind in our quest for education,” Dominguez said.

Cecile Dominguez, executive director of the Alcantara Foundation (AF) said Union Bank’s learning technology in reading, “As A Filipino” workbooks, will now also be given to Grade II pupils with 1:1 pupil-workbook ratio. Last year, the program distributed the workbooks
to Grade I pupils only.

AF initiated and facilitates linkages for the Education for All (EFA) campaign in Malungon and in the province with partners such as Synergeia Foundation, Union Bank, Sagittarius Mines Inc. and the Department of Education.

The QUEST project is a learning technology by Synergeia Foundation implemented in Sarangani.

The day’s summit conducted plenary workshops for teachers and parents.

“Education starts at home,” Cecile Dominguez said.

Realizing that home is a very important foundation of education, QUEST gives parent mentoring sessions and values formation workshops aside from teachers’ trainings and workbook distributions.

“Let’s not waste time, let us support the government in their programs and let us also support our children towards their future by checking their progress in school,” Grade I parent Lalaine Decenorio said. (Russtum G. Pelima/SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE)
