The first day of school to most of the schools around the Philippines are now opened! Although some educational facilities will be opening next week, the month of June will surely keep the shopping malls lonely and the city streets free! Up in Manila, school opening might undergo a little shower and maybe a little thunder. Umbrellas are advised for start of the school year.
First Day of School 2018-2019
The school year (SY) 2018-2019 will be another year of learning for the younger generations of our society. According to one of the Department of Education (DepEd) Dumaguete Division Officer, with the growing population of this country, it is not a surprise if more students are to come to school; especially to public schools.
Many public schools in Dumaguete City in both elementary and high school department will undergo the basic requirements for a functional learning facility. Last month, it was discussed that some Negros schools are ‘Not Yet Ready’ to start classes. Even with the Brigada Eskwela 2018 being launched, there are some finishing touches for the facilities to properly function.
