SAN BEDA U STUDENTS APPEAL FOR WEEK-LONG SUSPENSION OF CLASSES
THE STUDENT council of the San Beda University in Manila on Sunday has urged the school administration to suspend online classes for one week to give calamity-affected students and faculty time to recover.
The student council said that some students experience power outages and interruption, have damaged homes and properties and some were in evacuation centers.
“Ang San Beda College of Arts and Sciences Student Council ay umaapela sa nakakataas na opisina na suspendihin muna ang ating mga online classes sa darating na linggo (November 16-November 21),” the student body said.
“Ito ay para magbigay-daan sa mga estudyante at faculty members na makapag-ayos at kahit papaano ay makabangon muli sa hagupit ng mga nagdaang sakuna,” it added.
As of press time, the San Beda University administration has no announcement for a further suspension.
Last week, the University of the East suspended all synchronous classes in its Manila and Caloocan campuses for six days after pleas from students affected by Super Typhoon Rolly and Typhoon Quinta.
