VISAYAN Electric recently donated printers and reams of bond papers to its 16 partner schools in Cebu to augment their supplies for this school year’s blended learning requirements.
“Even though the budget is limited because of the pandemic, Visayan Electric still sees the need to help our partner schools in meeting the challenges brought about by the new method of teaching and learning this school year. We hope that the 16 schools that we chose will be able to put these items to good use,” said Raul Lucero, president and chief operating officer of Visayan Electric.
The schools that received the donations were Sta. Cruz Elementary School and Calero Integrated School in Liloan; Tugbongan Elementary School and Jugan Elementary School in Consolacion; Mandaue City School for the Arts and Banilad Elementary School in Mandaue City; Luz Elementary School and Guadalupe Elementary School in Cebu City; Vicenta Manreal Elementary School and Pooc National High School in Talisay City; Vito Elementary School and Calajoan Elementary School in Minglanilla; Balirong Elementary School and Tuyan Elementary School in Naga City; and Sangat Elementary School and Pitalo Elementary School in San Fernando.
Pooc National High School Principal Clote Bayarcal thanked the electric distribution utility for the timely gift.
“We really appreciate this. Your assistance came at a time when we need more supplies to produce the modules that our students need. Thank you!” she said.
