The success of UMak’s Reading and Writing Literacy Training last school year, held at the Day Care School of the International Baptist Church (IBC) at the university’s adopted Barangay San Juan community in Damayan Floodway, Taytay, Rizal, has paved the way for its second release.
Enrollment and assessment of the second batch of preschool children was completed last June 27 at the IBC by the Center for Extension Service, Entrepreneurial and Livelihood Education and the College of Education (COE), with COE Extension Coordinator, Prof. Juvy Llorca, at the helm. Reading and writing training sessions for academic year 2013 to 2014 started last July 4. This will be conducted every Thursday.
The first batch of the literacy training program students graduated last March 12, 2013, and most of the graduates are now enrolled in the regular basic education program. UMak’s Reading and Writing Literacy Training Program is a partnership of UMak COE and League of UMak Volunteer students enrolled in Practice Teaching subjects, with the IBC. (Write-up by Dir.
