Education fair to prepare 10,000 Davao students for ASEAN opportunities

DAVAO CITY – To ensure that Davao students will be able to maximize the opportunities brought by the recently-concluded Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting, Edukasyon.ph, in partnership with the Davao City Local Government, the Department of Education, and SM will hold an education fair this November 20-21 at SMX, SM Lanang.

The said fair will provide access to higher education choices and help students make better-informed decisions that will allow them to develop the right skills using the online platform at www.edukasyon.ph. Students from Grades 10 and 12 can choose the right course and discover education opportunities from various public and private colleges and universities.

Around 10,000 Grades 10 and 12 students will join the two-day Davao education fair. Davao City Mayor Sarah Duterte-Carpio, CHED Regional Director Dr. Raul C. Alavarez, Jr., and DepEd Regional Director Atty. Alberto Escobarte are expected to lead a discussion on their plans for the local youth.

“Now is the perfect time to look beyond and explore retail opportunities in cities further down South,” Mayor Duterte-Carpio said during a national conference last August.

“Together, we can make the Philippines become more competitive and continue to bring forth a thriving economy to the country,” she further commented.

Edukasyon.ph Partnerships Head Daniel Macusi Jr. underscored the significance of giving students a top-quality education that would match their career paths. “It is important that we are giving the students a chance to have a choice as this would affect their future and our future as a developing country.”

The education fairs were made possible with the help of ASUS Philippines, SM, SMART, and Jollibee. The Davao Local Government Unit and Department of Education–School Division Office are also working together with Edukasyon.ph to address the education needs of the students.

“We seek to make education reachable to every Filipino child regardless of their social status. Edukasyon.ph empowers students by giving them all the important education to career information that they need,” Macusi said.
