DECLARATION OF SCHOOLS AS ZONES OF PEACE


By MAS YAHYA

Marawi City, Lanao del Sur
December 13, 2017

DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones and DepEd-ARMM Secretary John A. Magno led the symbolic signing of a manifesto of commitment to support the declaration of schools as zones of peace at Amai Pakpak Central Elementary School (APCES) Wednesday morning.

The signing ceremony done with other government officials, the military, DepEd officials and private sectoral leaders was among the highlights of the Brigada Eskwela 2017program Wednesday morning that kicked off the opening of school classes in the city.

Schools opening for SY 2017-2018 in Marawi was disrupted when the Maute Group and supporters sieged the Islamic city last May 23, 2017 that lasted about six months.

The Marawi siege left hundreds, if not thousands, killed, hundreds of thousands displaced and a billion of pesos or more worth of property damaged.

Incidentally, APCES is headed by Principal Pinamili Diron Abedin and the school presently hosts the office of Marawi City schools division under Suerintendent Pharida L. Sansarona. (RSP)
