Taguig to implement CHEERS Program

Students in evacuation areas to get continuous learning

The city government of Taguig is all set to  implement another pioneering program. This time, it will be called the Child-Friendly, Habitation, Evacuation and Educational Rooms during Storm (CHEERS) program which is designed to minimize disruption in the children’s learning process.


The  City of Taguig and the  Department of Education- Taguig and Pateros (DepED-TAPAT)  will designate a classroom in 18 public schools located in the city’s low-lying areas to be utilized as learning centers for students  during the  evacuation period. The CHEERS classroom facility is equipped with books for story-telling, multi-media devices and other learning materials. Lessons to be offered include reading competency, values integration and story-telling.


Mayor Lani Cayetano said the CHEERS program will  help lessen the trauma experience of the victims while at the same time maximize the time of student-evacuees while in the evacuation centers.


“During and after strong typhoons,  a lot of people including school-age children have to spend days and sometimes weeks at evacuation centers. Through our CHEERS Program, the children’s learning opportunity will not be severely hampered as they will continue to receive lessons  at these temporary shelters,” Mayor Lani said.


Dr. Benjamin Samson, DepEd TAPAT Office of the Schools Division Superintendent officer-in-charge, said that  teachers who have undergone special training will be assigned to  conduct lessons to all school-aged evacuees. The assigned teachers will be given service credits upon submission of reports.


The Taguig City Government has been very supportive to DepEd since assuming her post in 2010. The support propels the DepEd TAPAT to the no. 1 ranking in the National Achievement Test-National Capital Region.


This school year, the six city-funded school buildings were opened to students and teachers in Taguig’s public schools with four other infrastructure projects still in the construction phase. ###




Pag-aaral ng mga  bata, tuloy kahit nasa evacuation areas  

Taguig ikinasa na ang CHEERS Program


Isang programa na may layuning magpatuloy ang pag-aaral ng mga bata kahit nasa evacuation centers dahil sa masamang panahon ang ipatutupad ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Taguig at ng Department of Education Taguig and Pateros (DepEd TAPAT).


Ito Ang Child-Friendly, Habitation, Evacuation and Educational Rooms during Storm o CHEERS na kung saan may inilaang tig-isang silid-aralan na magsisilbing learning center sa 18 pampublikong paaralan na nasa mga mababang lugar sa Taguig.


Ang bawat CHEERS classroom facility ay mayroong iba’t- ibang babasahin; multi-media devices; at iba pang mga learning material na magagamit ng mga bata habang nasa evacuation centers. Kabilang naman sa mga araling ituturo ang reading; values integration; at story-telling.


Sinabi ni Mayor Lani Cayetano na ang CHEERS program ay makatutulong upang mabawasan ang trauma sa mga batang evacuee.


“Habang nasa kasagsagan at kahit tapos na ang pananalasa ng  bagyo, maraming bata ang nananatili sa mga evacuation center ng ilang araw o di kaya ay kahit ilang linggo. Sa pamamagitan ng CHEERS Program, ang pagtanggap ng kaalaman ng mga bata ay magpapatuloy dahil mayroong magtuturo sa kanila habang nasa mga temporary shelter,” pahayag ni Mayor Lani.


Ayon kay Dr. Benjamin Samson, DepEd TAPAT Office of the Schools Division Superintendent officer-in-charge, ang mga gurong sumailalim sa special training ang siyang naatasan na magturo sa mga bata sa evacuation centers.


Sapul maluklok sa puwesto noong 2010 ay todong suporta na ang ipinagkaloob ni Mayor Lani sa DepEd. Naging malaking tulong ang suporta ng alkalde sa pagkuha ng DepEd TAPAT sa no. 1 ranking sa National Achievement Test sa National Capital Region.


Ngayong school year, anim na school building na pinondohan ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Taguig ang nagagamit na ng mga estudyante at mga guro sa public schools habang hinihintay pang matapos ang konstruksyon ng apat na iba pang infrastructure project. ###
