CALBAYOG CITY – Eighteen (18) of the country’s high schools will benefit from the ASEAN Building Relationship through Intercultural Dialogue and Growing Engagement (BRIDGE) School Partnership Project. Calbayog City National High School (CCNHS) is one of only two schools in Eastern Visayas (Region 8) identified to benefit from the program. The other one is Leyte National High School.

With the assessment that CCNHS has met the standard requirements of a best school partner for the ASEAN BRIDGE School Partnership Project, five (5) of its teachers will, one at a time, be sent to Australia for a 12-day immersion in selected schools and the community where the school is located. Named by the City Schools Division Office are Joy Saldaña, Maria Luz Murillo, Robert Anthony Ygrubay, June Ortiz and Dr. Erwin Purcia. In the same manner, Australian teachers will also spend number of days for the same purpose in identified school partners in the Philippines. Travel time and immersion of the teachers will start in August 2017.

A four-member team of the Department of Education, composed of Farida Bianca P. Velicaria, Project Development Officer II; Belen C. Javier, Administrative Officer V; Vicente Q. Calma, Jr. Project Development Officer III; and Jeralyn Castillo, Administrative Assistant, Project Management System conducted an ocular visit to CCNHS being one of the nominated schools on June 14, 2017. The team validated the school’s internet capability and Information Technology (IT) facilities – both hardware and software.

“The ocular inspection was necessary to ensure that the nominees - school and teachers – really meet the standards of a best partner school in the program,” Dr. Calick D. Arrieta, CCNHS School Principal told Calbayog Journal in an interview.

“Most of all,” Dr. Arrieta added, “DepEd needed to make sure that the school and the community is safe and that security of the Australian exchange-scholars who will be in the school is guaranteed.”

The five teacher-nominees required of a demonstration teaching were also observed by the ocular team so as to ensure teaching capabilities and facility in using Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in education. Four of these teacher-nominees were observed in actual classroom teaching while the other one was gauged via video conferencing through Skype.

“Aimed at exchanging knowledge on successful practices, procedures and techniques in teaching and how our local system can adopt Australian teaching approaches just as the Australians may also get from our teaching practices, the program will be of good help to the teachers and the schools,” the School Principal stated thereby adding to conclude that “we are also looking at the manner by which culture and technology are effectively interfaced in the classrooms.”
