Herminigildo Trinidad, assistant schools division superintendent Rhina Ilagan, Talaga Central School principal Anita Divina, business unit head Jed Francis Decano and School Governance and Operations Division chief Dr. Maximo Custodio Jr.T1 Rentals, together with its hauling subsidiary Therma One Transport, donated printing supplies to Talaga Central School in Tanauan City, Batangas. Located across T1 Rentals’ newly opened yard, the school received five printers, 400 reams of bond paper and 22 sets of ink to help them provide quality learning modules for their students.
To ensure learning continuity amid the pandemic brought about by COVID-19, public schools all over the country adopted multiple learning delivery modalities including blended learning and distance learning. Learning modules are being printed so they can be delivered to the students.
“…When the yard was still under construction, we immediately thought of how we can give back to our new host community,” revealed Tanauan Yard project-in-charge Aaron King.
A management trainee who will soon be graduating from First Balfour’s junior management training program, King said he thought of extending help to an institution that also hones future leaders. He led the construction of the new onehectare Tanauan Yard which was set up to quickly serve T1 Rentals’ ongoing projects in Calabarzon and the Bicol region.
“We are very lucky because it’s not every day that we get to receive such big help from private companies. These supplies will not only give [the school] a head start in providing quality modules, but it will surely help them survive in this new normal called distance learning,” said Tanauan City Vice Mayor Atty. Herminigildo Trinidad during the handover ceremony.
