National Schools Enrolment Day
DepEd Manila elementary and secondary schools opened on Saturday, January 28, 2012 to enlist Kindergarten and Grade I entrants and to welcome back Out of School Children (OSC) and Out of School Youth (OSY) for School Year 2012-2013. Before the activity, schools conducted advocacy campaigns to inform the public of the conduct of early registration. Through tarpaulins, streamers, flyers and parades, schools were able to communicate to stakeholders the importance of enlisting early. Data gathered from Early Registration Day would give Deped vital statistics for addressing school needs for additional rooms, teachers, textbooks and other facilities.
