BUTUAN CITY, Oct. 5 (PIA) – The Department of Education (DepEd) recently issued an advisory dated September 29, 2016 informing DepEd officials, personnel and staff for the conduct of the 2016 National Children’s Science Interactive Workshop (NCSIW).

Target participants of the said workshop are elementary school science club members from Grades 4 to 6 and its advisers from both public and private schools.

The workshop aims to provide the participants with a thorough understanding of the concepts and impact of a selected Science, Technology and Engineering (ST&E) topic, which is Robotics and its multidisciplinary fields through interaction with experts in the field.

It also provides them with a venue for the exchange of ideas and promotion of camaraderie among them and encourages them to join science clubs and to be involved with the science clubbing movement.

The workshop is slated on December 17 to 20 in Bataan with the theme, "Technosurge: Rebooting the Syndroid System," sponsored and facilitated by the Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC) Inc. (DepEd Butuan City Division/PIA-Agusan del Norte)


DSWD Caraga prepares workers for crisis situations under Kalahi-CIDSS program

By Marko Dave D. Reyes

BUTUAN CITY, Oct. 5 (PIA)  – The Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) Caraga recently concluded the conduct of the Crisis Communication Workshop which aims to capacitate Sub/Regional Program Management Office (S/RPMO) and field workers on how to manage crisis situations faced during the program’s implementation.

The workshop, which was held on September 27-29, 2016 at the VCDU Prince Hotel here was participated by workers from the 1st and 2nd Clusters (municipalities of Surigao del Norte, Province of Dinagat Islands, and some areas of Surigao del Sur) of Kalahi-CIDSS Caraga.

The Kalahi-CIDSS is one of the programs of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) that addresses the needs of barangays/communities by giving them the opportunity to identify their needs, identify the project to address their needs, and allow them to implement the project themselves.

With the dynamics of the implementation of the program, and with the inclusion of different partner-stakeholders, there is a major risk for problems/crisis to occur.

The training aims to unify the program’s messaging for the different stakeholders from the RPMO down to the Area Coordinating Teams (ACTs) on the field especially in times of crisis and capacitate the workers on crisis management, specifically on how to respond to problems based on different situations encountered in the workplace.

The remaining workers who have not undergone the training workshop will have their sessions on a series of schedules for October – November. DSWD Caraga would continue to capacitate its workers to ensure that the Department will be able to deliver responsive and compassionate services to the people of Caraga.
