PNS Nakakuha ng Pinakamataas na Rating para sa Paghahanda sa Limited Face-To-Face

Tumanggap ang Palawan National School ng adjectival rating na “Very Much Ready” o may katumbas na na summary rating na 4.67, ito ang pinakamataas na marka mula sa 16 na paaralan sa lungsod ng Puerto Princesa na sumailalim sa inspeksyon ng Regional Validation Team kaugnay ng pagsasagawa ng limited face-to-face. 

Sinuri ang kahandaan at preparasyon ng PNS ayon sa tatlong areas kung saan ay nagtala ng 4.83 (VMR) para sa Area 1: Managing Schools Operations; 4.39 (VMR) para sa Area 2: Teaching and Learning; at 4.69 (VMR) para sa Area 3: Wellbeing protection and homeschooling coordination.

Sa ginanap na exit conference na dinaluhan ng composite team sa pangunguna ni Dr. Nicholas T. Capulong, Director VI, CESO III, ay binati niya at pinasalamatan ang mga lumahok na paaralan at prinsipal. Hinihimok rin niyang maaari nang magpatuloy sa aktwal na limited face-to-face ang mga nasabing paaralan simula sa susunod na linggo (Marso 21, 2022).

Masaya ang buong pamunuan ng PNS sa magandang resulta ng isinagawang balidasyon. Congratulations, PNS!

Project PNS: Planning, Networking, and Services

Project PNS: Planning, Networking, and Services

The Palawan National School celebrated another Gender and Development (GAD) virtual activity on October 28, 2021, hosted by the two SHS teachers Mr. Archie Barone and Miss Carmencita Daculap with the theme: “Project PNS: Planning, Networking, and Services”. The speakers of the said webinar are both working at Palawan State University. Chef Melissa Grace C. Olit discussed the “Gender Equality in Community Volunteerism” that made the audience learn the significance of volunteerism, and Professor Frances Muriel L. Tuquero shared the “The Essence of Community Service”.

Community service is unpaid work performed by a person or a group of people for the benefit and betterment of the community without any form of compensation. The speakers shared their knowledge and skills to an audience of approximately 300 including the faculty and staff of the said school. Furthermore, the two virtual speakers shared their expertise about the essence of volunteerism and services to the viewers. They expressed themselves how they truly put effort, love, and passion in order to help the students and the people most especially those who are really in need. By working together, better results follow. According to the quote of Mother Theresa, “Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” When we do small things with love and passion it would surely touch and change other people’s lives.

Tugon Sa Panlipunang Hamon: First Virtual Research Capstone Expo

Tugon Sa Panlipunang Hamon: First Virtual Research Capstone Expo

Geared toward the theme, “Tugon sa Panlipunang Hamon,” the first-ever Virtual Research Capstone Exposition held last June 14 was brought to success by the excellent collaboration of the faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand together with General Academic Strand (GAS) students.

Projects presented in the online exhibit addressed specific community concerns that are anchored in the United Nations’ sustainable development goals such as providing proper and accessible healthcare, creating clean water and energy, climate change action, and zero hunger.

The said Expo consisted of a three-part presentation with accord to the researchers’ respective career fields – Education, Technology and Innovation, Medical and Life, and Engineering and Mathematics field. Critics of the projects were Ms. Kimberly Aborot, Ms. Annie Colobong, and Ms. Shiela Caab.

INFORMATION IS POWER

One of the researchers in the Education, Technology and Innovation field was Mr. David Raphael Villar and his proposed project called Pandemic Live Hazard Radar (PALIHARA) to monitor COVID-19 hot zones and predict their potential spread.

It collects data of five major factors that contribute to infection to produce an accurate situational report of a certain area using a specific algorithm to calculate the spread of the infection. With 100,000,000 cases and 3,000,000 deaths all over the world and the number of vaccines being limited, this innovation could be of great assistance in monitoring and limiting the devastation the virus has caused.

THE WONDER PLANT

Ms. Maria Bernadette Dueñas, on the other hand, presented her study entitled Althernanthera Sessilis (Lupo): A Review of its Botanical, Phytochemical and Medicinal Uses for the Medical and LIfe field.

Lupo is a herbal plant yet many are not aware of it because many think of it as weed or grass. It can be seen in rice and sugarcane fields, roadside, or in damp places.

The purpose of this study is to know the identity, phytochemical compounds, and medicinal uses of Alternanthera Sessilis or commonly known as Lupo. The phytocompounds of its leaves are mainly tannins, alkaloids, steroids, flavonoids, and saponins which are responsible for the therapeutic and medicinal properties of the plant. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, and has wound-healing properties that can be used in treating headache, vomiting blood, vertigo, snake bites, eye diseases, malaria, wounds, sprains, burns, boils, acne, eczema and can also serve as a blood purifier. Treatment is prepared through the decoction of dried and powdered leaves with some salt or the fresh leaves can be used as plasters and applied externally on the skin.

This study raises awareness on the importance of cultivation and utilization of Lupo due to its great pharmacological potentials for medicine use. In this time of the pandemic, it is important to have a strong immune system to prevent our bodies from being sick.

SECURED VACCINES SAVE LIVES

For the Engineering and Mathematics field, Mr. Ceddie Tadlas schemed a Technical Proposal and Design for VacTech: A Cold Storage Facility for Vaccines in Puerto Princesa City.

Vaccine Wastage is a faded potential to save another person who is not protected against viruses and diseases like Measles, Polio, Rubella, Tetanus, and especially the recent COVID-19. The storage temperature requirement ensures the potency of vaccines and when it is not met, its potency lessens, thus needing to throw it away.

VacTech is a facility that focuses on the packaging, logistics, and artificial cooling system to guarantee proper management and handling of vaccines from their storage up to delivery. It is designed to be fit for the tropical climate in our country and holds 535,572 vials, 445,646 diluents, and 20 different types of vaccines. It also has its packing area to process the vaccines in and out of the storage facility, an electrical system with 5,000-10,000 watts in case of an electrical fluctuation which usually happens in our province, and a Temperature Monitoring System (TMS) which is provided to notify people in the facility.

It has an area of 150 square meters with 5 subunits namely Vaccine Storage, Packing Area, Packing Material Storage for syringes and other materials, Loading Bay for transportation, and Storekeeper’s Facility for maintenance. With this facility, it is expected that wasted vaccines will be lessened in our province and save more people’s lives.

All these innovations acknowledge the needs of the communities especially those who belong to the underprivileged sector. It could bridge the gap between disparities in our society. Despite the pandemic, researchers were able to produce a substantial paper independently which reflects their deep understanding of their projects and learnings.
