Government Agencies Join Forces to Address Job Misfit

DepEd,CHED,TESDA, DOST, DOLE and the Local Government Unit converged during the “Capacity Building Seminar-Workshop and Career Advocacy” for the career guidance advocates, to address the job mismatch, held last July 17, 2014 in Patio Grande, Bayugan City.

Dr. Wilson C. Calvo, the Secondary School IV from Bayugan National Comprehensive High School (BNCHS) discussed about the “Career Guidance Advocacy Plan for 2013-2016”. He emphasized that there is a shortage of talents and job mismatch. Shortage of talents means lack of people taking programs/courses that is in need by the industries. It is also important to note the role of the K-12 Program, especially for Senior High School, in addressing skills development of our students.

Engr. Norberto B. Dorado, Sr. Specialist from TESDA talks about the “Career Path in Trade Skills” and how the K-12 program and the said agency can empower the young through skills development. For the Senior High School, graduates are expected to have a National Certificate II level of competency which will enable them to work and become more productive and contribute more for the country’s economic growth.

Information about the scholarship grants of DOST which included two types - R.A. 7687 DOST-SEI Scholarship and DOST–SEI Merit Scholarship were discussed by Engr. Andrea J. Cabonita Ph. D. , Provincial Science and Technology Director from DOST.

“Ani ng Sining”: A Call to Support Young Bayuganon Artists

Young Bayuganon artists under the Special Program in the Arts (SPA) – Visual Arts Program of Bayugan National Comprehensive High School (BNCHS) will celebrate the beauty of their God-given talents through their annual art exhibit on February 13-14, 2014 with the theme “Ani ng Sining” which is taken from this year’s National Arts Month theme. The venue will be in the New Science Laboratory of the Engineering and Sciences Education Program  (ESEP) Building of BNCHS.

More than 20 artists will be showcasing their crafts with over 50 beautiful and lovely paintings that every Bayuganons should be proud of. The event aims to raise funds for them to buy art materials for next school year. The SPA Visual Arts program of BNCHS is not fully funded, thus, these enthusiastic and passionate painters head organized by Mr. Eleazar Quirante created a way to support our local talents.

Mr. Quirante said that, before,  they have conducted a fund raising activity during their school’s intramurals where they had a “face painting activity” and their proceeds went to the same purpose of purchasing art materials.

Here are some of the paintings to be put on the exhibit:
