43 Caraga cops dismissed from service
 
BUTUAN CITY, Nov. 13 – Amid the intensified efforts of Caraga police to clean its ranks, 43 cops were dismissed from the uniformed service from January 1 to November 9, 2017.

The dismissed policemen were found guilty for grave misconduct, grave insubordination, serious neglect of duty and grave neglect of duty.

“This is part of our ongoing internal cleansing efforts to instill discipline and build ethics among our ranks. We need cops who are true to their sworn duties and committed to render quality police services,” Police Regional Office (PRO13) Regional Director PCSupt. Rolando Felix emphasized.

In 2016, series of random drug tests were conducted to the uniformed personnel assigned to regional headquarters, police provincial offices, public safety forces and police stations in Caraga. Those who were found positive for the use of illegal drugs were charged administratively for grave misconduct.

The penalty of dismissal, which resulted in the separation from the service, shall carry with it the cancellation of eligibility, forfeiture of retirement benefits and disqualification for reemployment in the government service. (PRO-13/PIA-Caraga)


Tagalog News: Mga guro, estudyante sa Caraga region nakipagtagisan sa ‘Regional Science Fair at Quiz Plus’
 
LUNGSOD NG SURIGAO, Nob. 13 (PIA) – Bilang paghahanda sa nalalapit na National Science Fair sa darating na Pebrero 2018, naging mahigpit ang kompetisyon ng mga guro at mag-aaral na nagsipaglahok sa ‘Regional Science Fair and Quiz Plus’ na ginanap dito sa Surigao City National High School.

Minabuti umano ng mga sumali sa iba’t ibang kategorya ng kompetisyon na maitampok ang pananaliksik at pinag-isipang sayantipikong proyekto o science investigatory project, gayundin ang puspusang pagsasanay para sa sinalihang quiz bowl.

Ayon kay Dr. Isidro Biol, chief ng Curriculum and Learning Management and Development ng  Department of Education (DepEd) Caraga, pinagtibay umano ng kanilang departamento ang pagtatanghal ng regional science fair upang maisulong pa lalo ang kahalagahan ng pagdiskubre at pagbuo ng mga natatanging researchers na pawang mga kabataan.

Dagdag pa ni Biol, ang mga napiling kalahok na sasabak sa national level ay sasailalim sa ‘cliniquing’ kung saan nilalayong higit na pahusayin ang kanilang kaalaman at kakayahan.

“Ito ay isa sa mga best practices ng DepEd. Marami-rami na rin tayong napanalunan internationally sa iba’t ibang bansa gaya ng Seoul, South Korea, Canada, Malaysia at sa iba pang parte ng mundo,” sabi ni Biol.

Inihayag naman ni Bernabe Linog, Science Education Program Supervisor ng DepEd Caraga, na sinisiguro ng DepEd na mahasa ang kakayahan ng mga kabataan sa scientific at technological research at maging katuwang ang mga ito sa pagsulong ng innovative projects.

Bukod sa science investigatory project, quiz bowl at environmental quiz, kabilang din sa pinagtagisan ang robotics, strategic intervention materials (SIM), improvisation material at process skills.


Ang naging tema ng Regional Science Fair and Quiz Plus sa taon na ito ay “Utilizing Science Innovation, Promoting Disaster Risk Reduction.” (VLG/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
