3 PH public schools nominated for World’s Best School award
Three public schools from the country have been nominated in a global education award.
Bonuan Buquig National High School (Dagupan City, Pangasinan), G.L. David Memorial Integrated School (Balanga, Bataan), and Malitbog National High School (Calinog, Iloilo) were among the finalists in the World’s Best School Prize under the environmental action, community collaboration, and supporting healthy lives categories.
The inaugural World’s Best School Prize was organized by T4 Education.
T4 Education is a digital media platform that allows teachers to collaborate and share good practices.
“By telling the stories of inspirational schools that are transforming the lives of their students and making a real difference to their communities, schools can share their best practices and help transform education,” T4 Education founder and CEO Vikas Pota said.
Bonuan Buquig National High School was selected for the environmental action category for its mangrove-planting project.
“As a result, the mangroves along the Longos river banks are nearly rehabilitated and stabilized,” T4 said.
G.L. David Memorial Integrated School was chosen for the community collaboration category, for its “Kain Pa” project.
“The initiative procures vegetables, fruits and other goods from government officials, NGOs (non-government organizations) and parents who buy ingredients from the market and sometimes help cook the meals themselves,” T4 said.
Malitbog National High School was included in the supporting healthy lives category for having the Happy and Healthy School Program during pandemic.
The program sought “to promote physical, mental, and social health” among students, T4 said.
