500 CCA scholars to receive laptop


ANGELES CITY — Some 500 scholars at the City College of Angeles will receive laptops to aid them in their studies.

The laptops are donated by the Department of Information and Communications to the city government.

Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. said this is to continue to uplift the quality of education in the city.

Mayor Lazatin thanked the DICT for the said laptops that are to be used by the 500 scholars taking up the course Information and Technology.

The laptops are still under the property of the CCA and shall be returned by the end of the school year.

“Alam naman po natin ang adjustment sa mode ng pag-aaral ngayong pandemya. Kaya naman ginagawan po natin ng paraan upang mapagpatuloy ng ating mga iskolar ang kanilang pag-aaral, lalo na yung mga nasa ganitong klase ng kurso na walang sapat na kagamitan. Thank you DICT,” Lazatin explained.

“Mayroon naman din pong free WiFi na maaaring magamit ng ating mga students,” he added.

Mayor Lazatin, together with Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel and CCA President Dr. Frankie Villanueva, on January 26, 2022 inspected the laptops delivered to the Mayor’s Office.

The distribution of the laptops will follow suit.

Aside from the laptops, the city has already distributed 63,200 tablets for the use of public school teachers, Grades 4 to 12 students and CCA scholars for their online classes amid the pandemic.

Internet cards were also provided for free WiFi access.

A total of 700 satellite units were installed city-wide for the free WiFi connection, alongside the distribution of internet learning cards to the teachers and students for better internet access.

To date, the CCA has 16 courses available with 3,200 enrolled scholars.
