August 03, 2016

AP Renewables, Inc (APRI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of AboitizPower, has launched and started the 2016 School Governance Capability Building Project at conference held in Tiwi Geothermal Power Plant Conference Room, Tiwi Albay last May 26.

The project aims to build the capacities of the members of the Parent-Teachers Associations (PTAs) of five public elementary schools located in the five Geothermal Barangays of APRI Tiwi in Albay, namely Cale Elem School, Nagas Elem School, Libtong Elem School, Joroan Elem School, and Car-Nag Elem School.

This corporate social responsibility (CSR) project of APRI is in support of the three-year education development plan the Department of Education (DepEd) through the implementation of the School Improvement Plans (SIPs).

The main objective of SIP is to guide the schools with the help of the community and various stakeholders, including PTA, local government unit, and the local school board in prioritizing sustainable education interventions toward a quality public education.

Libtong Elementary School Head Ma. Iris Ciruelos noted that the involvement of external and internal stakeholders is important in the realization of the quality education for the Albayano children. “APRI’s School Governance Building project would be of great help to our schools in achieving equitable access to quality education and efficient school management,” Ciruelos said.

A series of workshops which include Strategy Formulation, Personal Effectiveness, Team Building and Leadership were conducted last June 18 and 25 and July 2 respectively. Succeeding workshops are scheduled every Saturday  starting July 9 until September 24, 2016, to help the participants formulate their SIPs.

APRI remains true to its commitment of social responsibility and good corporate citizenship by continuously developing educational programs for a better future of its host communities. ###
