Now on its third phase, the DTI program gave computers to Bugo National High School, Calaanan National High School, Cugman National High School, Lumbia National High School, Macabalan National High School, Mambuaya National High School and Tablon National High School.
During the flag-raising ceremony at the city hall this morning, DTI provincial director Ma. Eliza A. Pabillore, assisted by Mayor Vicente Y. Emano and city schools division superintendent Isabelita Borres, turned over the certificates of award to the school principals.
Emano expressed hopes that more high school students here will learn basic computer skills and eventually prepare them to become globally competitive workers.
Each of the computers are reportedly equipped with networking hardware and software that will enable the schools to connect to the Internet, and thus give the students the ability to do extensive research online.
Pabillore said that the PCPS, which is being supported by the Japanese government, will most likely be replicated in other public high schools in the city if evaluation of the program will prove to have a significant impact on the scholastic performance of the high school students.
