SJNHS Empowers Learners: National Learning Camp for Learning Recovery
As part of the Department of Education’s (DepEd’s) commitment to addressing the learning gaps brought about by the pandemic lockdown, the National Learning Camp (NLC) aimed to assist K to 12 learners in all public elementary and secondary schools nationwide to attain learning standards. In support of this commitment, San Juan National High School successfully completed the 5-week Camp which started on July 24 and ended on August 25, 2023. The Learning Camp was participated by Grade 7 and Grade 8 students with a total of 103 registered active campers under Consolidation Camp. It also involved Grades 7 and 8 English, Math, and Science teacher-volunteers who were one with the commitment to learning recovery.
The Learning Camp commenced with an orientation of the learners and their parents. It was attended by the teacher-volunteers and head teachers under the leadership of Dr. Lloyd T. Tulaylay.
In a powerful display of educational synergy, the teacher-volunteer had a collaboration session every Friday to share insights on the relevant learning and teaching experiences during the first week. The second week of the collaboration session was conducted through an online presentation via Gmeet. Joselle Ira Liwanag, Grade 8 Science teacher-volunteer, presented the challenges and best practices shared by her fellow teacher-volunteers. The third collaboration session was graced by Dr. Bradley Goldie K. Loo, Division Education Program Supervisor of Science, and Ms. Bernadeth C. Daran, Education Program Supervisor of Curriculum and Learning Management. Ms. Daran conscientiously noted the challenges and best practices of the teacher-volunteers in the implementation of NLC including their suggestions for improvement. She congratulated the teacher volunteers and commended them for their dedication to addressing learning gaps and losses.
The closing and awarding program was held last Aug. 24, 2023. As a whole, the learners had wonderful learning experience in the Camp.
