Limay-based firm, Australian NGO partner to train preschool teachers

Mar 6, 2018 @ 6:34

Preschool teachers in Limay, Bataan province were beneficiaries of a three-part training with an international nongovernment organization (NGO).

Smith Family, an NGO based in Australia, had its first tie-up with Orica Philippines for the International Standard Trainors’ Training under its “Lets Count Program.”

Orica Philippines’ John Philip S. de Jesus explained that the Lets Count Program is an early childhood learning program focusing on math, where kindergarten teachers are being trained on how to encourage their pupils to learn and enjoy the subject at the same time.

According to De Jesus, the program aims to develop early childhood learning, and to help children build their skills and knowledge and motivate them in pursuing their career paths beyond the classroom.

The program was divided into three parts. In part 1, held from November-December 2017, teacher-participants were given an orientation about the Lets Count Program. Part 2 was the launching of the program in different schools, which was attended by the parents of the preschool kids. In part 3, Ms. Deborrah Ryan, the Australian facilitator of the Smith family, conducted the monitoring of schools to gauge their overall experience with the program. This included holding feedback sessions and further training of trainors.

Orica, an international company with branches in the Philippines (Manila and Limay, Bataan) is an ISO 9002 certified manufacturer of explosives.
