Held in various recipient public schools within General Santos City and Sarangani Province, Pasali Philippines Foundation tapped the partnership of PTA (Parents-Teachers-Association) as co-peace advocates in the promotion of equality and understanding thru the Respect Education Program in every school campus. Thus, the School-Based PTA Strengthening Orientation-Workshop was productively conducted on Nov 7, 8, 9 &10, 2016. Participants in this event were the Principals and 15 GPTA’s (5 PTA Executive Officers and the BOD’s that include the teacher-secretary and BOD teacher-member) per school.
With the aid of DepEd Gensan Division by issuance of memorandum represented by Mr. Herven Allado, currently, a Senior Education Program Specialist for Social Mobilization and Networking, Pasali successfully reached out to 12 Schools, grouped in 4 clusters:

This event was done to further determine the roles and limitations of the PTA and even be acquainted in proper recording and handling of the organization’s funds for the purpose of transparency and safekeeping. The topics that were discussed involve the Revised PTA Guidelines on DepEd Order #54, series of 2009 and Simple Bookkeeping.
To diversify the intercultural understanding in education and fulfill explicit basic needs of students, Pasali, once more, launched “Creativity in Teaching with Respect Methodologies Training for K-12 Teachers” last November 4-5, 2016 at Sultan Kudarat State University, Poblacion, Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat. It was participated by 7 Faculty Personnel and 55 Graduating BEED Students of SKSU.
Since the first phase of this training was done last September 2-4, 2016, this time, Pasali spruced up the training by adding topics such as creative lesson plan formulation, elements of artistic expression, integrated Theater Arts such as Creative writing, Creative Sound and Music and even Creative Body movement that supersede the traditional way of teaching. This event was facilitated by Pasali’s Children’s’ Education and Welfare Program Facilitators and co-facilitated by 10 selected previously trained SKSU BEED students (September 2-4, 2016).
