By Jessica Madrid


The Department of Education (DepEd) in Camarines Sur launched its Learning Recovery Plan (LRP), Tuesday, June 21 at Villa Caceres Hotel in Naga City.


Tthe LRP seeks to effectively address the learning gaps brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic that greatly affected the students' coping mechanisms. 


DepEd Camarines Sur Schools Division Superintendent Loida N. Nidea said that the launching of the LRP in the province is in response to the two-year gap of no face-to-face classes, hence, the need for the recovery plan to master the competencies of the learners.


“Ito po ay response ng DepEd Bicol sa tow-year gap na walang face-to-face, kaya kailangan po natin ng Recovery Plan para yung mga competencies na hindi na-master ng mga bata ay ma-master, both sa literacy at numeracy (This is  DepEd Bicol's response to the past  2 years  that there is no face-to-face classes, hence, we need a Recovery Plan so that the competencies that were not mastered by the children will be revisited, both on literacy and numeracy)," Nidea explained.


DepEd Bicol Director Gilbert Sadsad, in a statement, explained that the crafting of DepEd Bicol’s Learning Recovery Plan dubbed as RAISE: R5 LRP (Recovering for Academic Achievement by Improving Instruction through Sustainable Evidence-based learning programs) was conceptualized early this year to help the learners catch up and accelerate their learning after two years of learning disruption due to Covid-19.

He added that the main goal of the LRP is not to bring all learners back to school, but to organize effective remedial learning, support learners’ well-being, train teachers, fill digital divides and equip the young learners with the skills that they need to learn.


The activity was full of energy and excitement as all the participants from the Schools Division Offices (SDOs) from  five congressional districts of Camarines Sur were in cosplay attires while they presented their LRPs on reading practices and strategies, along with  LRP yell and slogan.


DepEd CamSur Schools Division Superintendent (SDS) Loida N. Nidea led the Pledge of Commitment signing, together with the top management, stakeholders, and partner agencies that include: the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) – Camarines Sur, Radyo Natin Naga, Philippine Army, GMA 7, City Savings Bank, Rotary Club, among others.


Members committed to support the RAISE CAMSUR LN and the LRP of  SDO CamSur, to make every learner a value-laden, grade level ready-literate, and numerate individual through competent and passionate teachers, school leaders, and stakeholders who are committed in nurturing holistically developed learners. This is also a way of readying the students to conquer the rapidly changing world.


In her closing message, Nidea challenged everyone to lift a hand for the LRP of SDO Camarines Sur.


“We may have the best presentation this afternoon. We may have the strongest partners and stakeholders, but if we do not lift a hand, and lifting a hand will mean two things: - we lift a hand of a child who finds it hard to read and to understand numbers; and it could be the leaders lifting a hand to make things happen. That’s the challenge.” (PIA5/Camarines Sur)
