To widen tri-people children’s access to quality education through an enhanced learning environment, Pasali turns-over the newly-completed multipurpose building project to Kanipaan Elementary School at Kanipaan, Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat on November 5, 2014.
The Turn-Over Ceremonies was attended by Pasali Staffs and representatives from LGU and DepEd, school administration and Parents Teachers Association (PTA) with the students, parents and teachers of the school.
Kanipaan ES is the only primary school in the afore-mentioned barangay admitting a number of tri-people school children which is more than the capacity of the school facilities. Pupils are not just from within the said barangay but also from various neighboring communities like Napnapon, Barrio Mangga, Barongis.
The multipurpose building was built to provide two (2) classrooms for classes that carry-out instruction only in an open space covered area of the school due to growing number of enrollees this academic year. Having been able to witness the scenario, Pasali came-up with the initiative to source out donation/s for the construction of a multipurpose building that can cater the number of lacking classrooms. The project was supported and funded by Cordaid and building construction started last July and was finally completed on end of September 2014.
The teaching force headed by Mrs. Noraida Pangansayan, District Planning Officer, encouraged the school stakeholders to maintain and take good care of the building. The Sangguniang Bayan was represented by Hon. Mariam Kanda, Committee Chair on Social services and Hon. Amil Pangansayan, Committee Chair on Education, whose words also thanked Pasali for the building and rendered encouragement for the community to make use of this gift in the most positive ways.
Representing DepEd Region XII, Mr. Agney Taruc, Coordinator for Peace and Other Innovations, gave a message which was centered on the importance and practicality of K-12, especially in the use of the mother tongue. He explained that K-12 is a spiral progression, a step-by-step process in which the child is stimulated to learn and think using those that are easily seen around him. He cited that for instance, fisheries and agriculture are areas of industry that are found in the community of Palimbang. In connection with K-12, he explains, that senior high schools in Palimbang which offers these two courses should create a MOA with existing industries and businesses in the municipality so that when the child graduates he is able to find a job. This shows that K-12 creates globally competitive individuals that according to Mr. Taruc, they are those who are ready for life, business livelihood and the whole world.
Summing-up the messages of various school stakeholders, everyone envisions this Pasali project to light a metaphor in achieving the dreams and aspirations of tri-people children through access to quality education for the emergence of competence and competitiveness in joining the world which is now called a GLOBAL VILLAGE.
