Amante akay ng paniniwalang ang lahat ng mabuting gawa ay dapat isagawang may pagtitiwala sa Poong Maykapal. (CIO/Diogenes L. Bunquin)

TAMANG EDUKASYON

     Sa tunay na takbo ng buhay, hindi ang mga kinikilalang “berde ang utak” o yaong mga sinasabing may  highly developed ability to think, reason, and understand, especially in combination with wide knowledge ang nagtatagumpay bilang propesyonal o bilang mga mananaliksik, sa halip ay yaon lamang  mga nabibilang sa “above average” subali’t matiyaga at may dedikasyon na matamo ang kanilang mga pangarapin. Ito ang nabanggit ni  City Administrator Loreto S. Amante nang siya ay kapanayamin ng pahayagang ito pagkatapos na siya ay magsalita sa gradwasyon ng Santisimo Rosario  National High School noong nakaraang Biyernes, Abril 1, 2011.

     Ayon sa City Administrator na tumapos ng kurso sa Foreign Service sa De La Salle University  sa Maynila,  maging sa mga samahan ng mga propesyonal, tulad ng Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), ng Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE), at ng Philippine Medical Association (PMA), ang mga nagiging lider ay hindi iyong mga first placer sa government examination, kundi iyong karaniwan lamang noong sila ay nagsisipag-aral, lamang sila ay may tiyagang pagsikapang ang kanilang kamalayan ay maiangkop sa pangangailangan ng kanilang propesyon.

     Isa ring pangangailangan upang maging matagumpay na propesyonal ang pagkakaroon ng maayos na kamalayan sa sining ng komunikasyon, kaya ang payo ni Amben Amante sa  mga batang na dapat mapaunlad nila ang kanilang kamalayan at kasanayan sa Wikang English, sapagka’t dapat tanggapin ang katotohanang ang English ang nagiging pandaigdigang wika lalo na ng mga gumagamit ng internet o electronic media sa kanilang mga pangkaraniwang pakikipagtalastasan.

     Karaniwang naririnig sa mga kasapi ng Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) na ang marami sa mga kumukuha ng government examination ay nabibigong makapasa  o nahuhulog dahil sa hindi nila ganap na nauunawaan ng instruksyon sa pagsusulit na kalakarang nasusulat sa Wikang English.

     Nagugunita ng may  ulat nito, na sa apat na taon niyang pag-aaral sa Mapua Institute of Technology, ang lahat ng mga nagiging board topnotcher sa Examination for Civil Engineers, for Chemical Engineers, and for Achitects, ay pawang naging miyembro ng Editorial Board ng The Builders, ang opisyal na pahayagan ng nabanggit na kolehiyo, na noon ay pangunahing kasapi ng College Editors’ Guild (CEG).
     Si City Administrator Loreto “Amben” S. Amante  ay naniniwalang “ang komunikasyon ay bahagi ng tamang edukasyon, at ang edukasyon ang pundasyon at haligi o pilar para sa matatag na hinaharap ng ating mga anak.” (Ruben E. Taningco)

Students get award for rainfall monitoring and recording

Seventeen teams  of  primary pupils and secondary students  from all public and private schools will be awarded  outstanding regional  winners of the 2nd Rain Watchers Award.   Qualifiers are those engaged in Project Rain Gauge, which Smart Communications, Inc. started in 2007  in partnership with the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

      According to Mr. Darwin F.  Flores,  Smart’s Senior  Manager for Community Partnerships,  Project Rain Gauge is envisioned to create a network of supplementary ground stations across the country to provide additional data on local rainfall measurement in specific areas for a more effective and accurate local weather monitoring.  He said that involvement of  teachers and students  provides sustainability  to the project.

     “Schools are trained to regularly monitor and record rainfall data, which they send to a website (www.projectraingauge.ph ) hosted and maintained by Smart.”  Flores added.
     The search for outstanding rain watchers was suggested  last year by AGHAM Party-List Representative  Angelo  B.  Palmones,  who is also the Chairman of the Philippine Typhoon Committee Foundation, Inc. (TCFI),   aimed at widening the  participation of schools and sustaining  the interest of  students.

     The 2nd Rain Watchers Award was recently launched with the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement between the TCFI, PAGASA, the  Department of Education (DepEd) and AGHAM.
     “We support this effort to recognize the schools that have consistently and conscientiously monitored rainfall because we hope that the data gathered will  support PAGASA,  and complement the agency’s capacity to determine fine-scale rainfall patterns necessary  to describe local climate,”  Palmones said .   He  said that  the work being done by rain watchers  will  help in building data that will form the basis  for early warning systems in flood-prone communities.

          From the  regional,  top three national winners will be selected and awarded by November this year.  Regional winners will receive medals for the team  and laptops for their schools, while national winners will receive cash prizes, plaques of recognition, mobile phones and Smart Bro plug-it units.  Winning schools at the national level will receive desktop computers and Smart Bro plug-it units.    

     Interested schools can register in Project Rain Gauge  until April 30, 2011.   For more information,   access  www.projectraingauge.ph   (AGHAM/Vicky B. Bartilet)
