- In cooperation with Globe Telecom, we would like to respond to the challenges facing our education sector such as limited access to digital learning in public schools. For this reason we are engaging each schools division in our region to bring 21st century learning to public schools nationwide through the Global Filipino Schools Program (GFS).
- The program is a long-term educational initiative that seeks to transform selected public schools into centers of ICT excellence and innovative teaching methods to enable teachers and students alike to thrive in the 21st century. Qualified school partners will receive free internet connectivity, ICT equipment, and teacher training on how to facilitate 21st century learning in the classroom, among others.
- We request nominations of up to 3 schools within each of your respective divisions for assessment to become a Global Filipino School. Please nominate schools with the following components:
- Needs to be a public high school
