“Navigating a Collaborative Educational Journey with Anglo-Eastern"

In a groundbreaking event on January 8, 2024, the Laguna Resettlement Community School (LRCS) sets sail on a new educational journey with the launch of the Adopt A Ship program in partnership with Anglo-Eastern Ship Management. The Anglo-Eastern delegation, led by Mr. Jessie Rex Martin, President, Capt. Neeraj Dhingra, Director, Atty. Kim Cabuhat, Welfare Manager, Ms. Dia Cernol, Welfare Officer, and C/E Rizalito Sotto, Gen Manager for Tech Management , graced the occasion with their very supportive team.
Mrs. Rosalie Mabale, the school head, extended a warm welcome to the AAS Team and Anglo-Eastern representatives, expressing gratitude for choosing LRCS as the program's implementation site. During the launch, Chief Officer Jeffrey Aldas, Adopt A Ship Philippine coordinator, provided an introduction to the program, outlining its objectives and detailing the implementation plan. To share his insights, C/E Martin underscored the significance of the maritime industry in our daily lives and emphasized the importance of raising awareness among younger generations about seafaring and the invaluable contributions of seafarers. Conversely, Capt. Dhingra, highlighted the advantages and opportunities that the maritime field offers, inspiring students to consider careers in this vital industry.
With the goal of connecting academic schools with maritime industry, this 10 week maritime awareness program is specifically designed for elementary students in grades 4 to 6. These students will engage in weekly communication with ship officers onboard the ship through their Social Science teachers. To enhance their learning experience, each social science teacher has been provided with a world map. This map serves as a valuable teaching tool, allowing them to monitor the location and movements of their adopted ship during their Adopt A Ship sessions.
The event concluded, expressing gratitude to the AAS Team and Anglo-Eastern for their presence, and anticipation for the resounding success of the program at LRCS. The day ended on a high note with a photo opportunity, capturing the enthusiasm and promise of this collaborative educational initiative.
