DepEd was so proud to announce another winning moment in the education scene as a team of students from Lopez National Comprehensive High School from Quezon Province won first prize in United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Bangkok’s Better Learning, Better Life competition.
As Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC iterated , “We share in the happiness of our young students who correctly pointed out that innovative teachers as well as non-traditional student- learners are important factors in shaping a bright future for education.”
Students from across the Asia-Pacific including Australia, China, India, Iran, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines joined the contest which highlights their vision on the future of education through both written submissions and video entries.
UNESCO Bangkok asked the youth of the region: What kind of skills will be needed for the future? What should young people learn and how should they learn it? The answer can either be written or in video form.
The winning Lopez National Comprehensive High School students answered via a video presentation identifying “innovative teachers as the ultimate resource” and that learning “out of the box” is the type of learning crucial for the youth to lead a better life and a better future.
The Quezon-based students received tablet computers from UNESCO Bangkok as prize for their winning entry.
Commendations like this upholds more the values being kept tight by DepEd, proving also how truly our education system is capable of having our school kids shine even in global competitions such as this. Thus, seeing awesome results in the way they perform inside and outside their school premises.
Good job LNCHS!
Cheers to more from our brilliant Filipino students!
