NORTHERN SAMAR SCHOOL SETS UP RADIO STATION FOR DISTANCE LEARNING
THE CAPACUJAN National High School has received its own broadcasting equipment to teach students in Palapag, Northern Samar through FM radio.
The equipment was provided by Sierra Falconès, a non-government organization, through its “Piso Ko, Transistor Mo” project.
The school will use the equipment for its Radio Based Instruction program to broadcast lessons and assist students with their printed modules.
Twenty-six teachers were trained to operate the RBI that will serve around 800 students in remote villages.
The school set up the RBI because it had poor internet signal.
“To have a good signal, they have to climb a hill when sending a message. That is why I really worked hard for us to have this radio station,” teacher Cherry Nobis said.
“Right now, we are still doing test broadcast in preparation for the actual operation once the class for this school year begin this month,” Nobis added.
The radio broadcast will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
