2 Leyte private schools join face-to-face learning

TACLOBAN CITY – Two private schools in Leyte have started the pilot run of face-to-face classes on Monday, joining the list of 10 campuses that took part in the in-person learning in the Eastern Visayas region.

These two private schools are the Mt. Moriah Christian Academy in Ormoc City offering classes for Nursery to Grade 3 learners, and the Notre Dame of Abuyog, Inc. in Abuyog town with classes for junior and senior high school students.

Notre Dame Directress-Principal Jean Borres said in a phone interview Tuesday that preparations had been set by the school management for the successful on-site learning.

This includes posting of signages for the observance of minimum health protocols, installation of a thermal scanner, sanitizing areas, foot bath, and traffic flow.

The school management also requires students to bring their own sanitizers or alcohol.

For the conduct of onsite classes, students attend the physical class in batches to ensure physical distancing in each classroom. Each room has a maximum of 20 students.

“We really tried our best for the approval of our application so that our students can go here and make learning more effective,” Borres said.

For their part, the Mt. Moriah Christian Academy thanked the government for allowing their school to take part in face-to-face learning.

“We are the first and only school in Ormoc that were allowed to implement face-to-face classes after almost two years of online teaching,” the school said in a statement.

The school makes sure that teachers and learners strictly adhere to existing health protocols.

On November 15, at least 10 public schools from Leyte and Samar provinces have started the pilot run of face-to-face classes.

In Leyte province, these schools are the Palo 1 Central School, Dolho Elementary School, Bato Central School. In Samar, campuses with limited face-to-face learning are San Sebastian Central School, Motiong Central School, Clarencio Calagos Memorial School of Fisheries, Macatingog Integrated School, Dawo Integrated School, Mawacat Elementary School, and Pilar Agricultural National High School. (PNA)
