Public schools to teach the value of hardwork and discipline
More than 80,000 pupils and 5,000 teachers are set to benefit from an advocacy program that teaches pupils the value of hardwork and discipline in selected public schools across the country.
Launched by the Department of Education in partnership with Fortune Life Insurance Co., Inc., the advocacy program aims to enhance pupils’ knowledge on the value of savings, discipline as well as imbibe in them the practice of hardwork, in everyday life.
The program, launched today at the Bulwagan ng Karunungan at DepEd’s Central Office, was graced by Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC; Ambassador Antonio L. Cabangon Chua, Chairman Emeritus and Founder; and Arnold A. Cabangon, President, both of Fortune Life.
According to Luistro, the schools need to reinforce what children should have learned first in their homes. “We believe that we can better shape a brighter future for the country if the homes and the schools reinforce each other in teaching the right values and work attitude to our young,” Luistro said.
The project will provide workbooks for pupils and teaching guides for teachers. There will be additional beauty and wellness activities for teachers. Some 5,000 teachers and 80,000 pupils will benefit from the program in selected schools in the National Capital Region, Region 3, Region 4, Region 7 and Region 11.
“Of course, part of the equation is our dear teachers who will also benefit from the project by way of life- coaching activities on beauty and wellness,” added Luistro.
