The country’s schools have been closed since the start of the pandemic. As schools prepare to reopen soon, the country’s education system is facing a major challenge on how to manage the transition and reopen safely amid risk brought about by the continuing pandemic.

The Rotary Club of Greenfield District on its kick-off activity brings top education leaders in a virtual discussion to share their experiences and learnings of managing their schools at the height of the pandemic and their plans on how to navigate from the online education back to a “new normal” now that the schools are reopening this August.

The Rotary Club of Greenfield District adapted AHEAD Education’s Leadership Strategies for School Managers (LESSM) as one of its core services hosted the virtual discussion entitled “Educators in Action: Adapting to the new culture of education.”

The virtual discussion was led by Br. Bernard S. Oca, FSC, President of De La Salle University, Dr. Elena E. Pernia, PhD, Vice-President of Public Affairs of the University of the Philippines, Prof. Cheryl R. Peralta, DRPH, Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs of the University of Santo Tomas, Dr. Winston Conrad Padojinog, President of University of Asia and the Pacific, and Raphael A. Guerrero, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Science and Engineering of Ateneo de Manila University. The discussion was moderated by Ms. Rossana Llenado, President and Founder of AHEAD Education, and the Rotary Club of Greenfield District’s President.

“The entire education sector faced an unprecedented major crisis. With COVID-19 making it downright dangerous for students to go to school at the height of the pandemic now transitioning from online education back to face-to-face classes is both imminent and imperative,” said Rossana Llenado.
