WCES opens in-person classes for SY 2022-2023
August 22, 2022 – The long-awaited opening of face-to-face classes has begun nationwide. After two years of virtual class, the learners return to school for the first time. A total of 734 learners were recorded to attend their first face-to-face classes at West Crame Elementary School which was more than the number of learners enrolled the previous years.
Long-term school closures fueled concerns that learners' literacy rates, which were already alarmingly low prior to the pandemic, would deteriorate. This also leads to a higher drop-out rate due to various factors that prevent learners from learning. However, the resumption of face-to-face classes is an important step toward regaining everything lost due to the pandemic. It is a time to rejoice as we begin again.
The safe and successful opening of classes of WCES cannot be achieved without the assistance of our extremely active, generous, and supportive stakeholders, Mayor Francis Javier Zamora and his City Councilors, Brgy. Officials from West Crame, led by Brgy. Chairman Marcelino Trinidad, Brgy. Councilor, Ufemia Timado together with their Barangay Police, PNP San Juan Station 6-PMAJ Dennis P. David, Dr. Andrew E. Tan, Education Program Supervisor in AP- Curriculum Management Division DepEd NCR, Mr. Orlando D. Claor, Education Program Supervisor in AP – SDO San Juan, SGOD Chief Dr. Dominique Rivera, Division DRR/Project Officer II Mr. Harry Bajo, School GPTA Officers led by Mr. Marcelito Macalanda, Mr. Roy Dan R. Pido, OIC-Principal, parents, and teachers.
