PUERTO PRINCESA CITY — Palawan National School (PNS) gave a festive welcome to the first batch of students, particularly 54 Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) – Information and Communications Technology (ICT) students, as the school reopened for the pilot implementation of the limited face-to-face classes, March 21. PNS was poised to conduct in-person classes after complying with the Department of Education’s (DepEd) standards and garnering a “Very Much Ready” rating during the previous week’s validation. The school is also expected to welcome Special Education (SPED), Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), Special Program in the Arts (SPA), Special Program in Sports (SPS), Science, Technology, and Engineering (STE), and Special Program in Foreign Language (SPFL) for in-person attendance starting March 28. PNS is one of the public and private schools set to reopen under the country-wide implementation of the expanded limited in-person classes after a two-year layoff amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
