Last year, our country was ravaged by disastrous natural calamities. Just recently, many properties and even a few human lives were claimed by the typhoon Glenda.
With all the life-threatening phenomena, the country’s government is calling the public’s attention for risks reduction awareness and consequently make people prepare themselves for emergency situations.
St. Stephen’s High School, being consistent with its mission and vision as a Christian school, is in one accord with the government’s advocacy on the preservation of the public safety and wellness. To ensure that its people are ready and equipped to respond to emergency situations, SSHS has taken a lot of safety measures, that include giving LIFE SKILL development trainings to all its employees. Among the trainings was the Basic First Aid and CPR Training with all the school employees realizing that the safety of our learners/ clienteles rests in our hands especially during school activities/functions.
The training was conducted in four batches or sessions by our very own alumni volunteers from the Textfire Philippines Foundation headed by Mr. Neil Bryant Siy, a People Safety Group (PSG) Instructor and SSHS Boy Scout Asst. Scoutmaster. The first batch was with all the Preschool, Elementary and High School non-teaching staff which was held last June 21, 2014, Saturday followed by the 2nd session with the High School English Faculty and the Preschool Faculty whose surnames start with letters A-L last July 5, 2014, Saturday. The Elementary English Faculty and Preschool teachers whose surnames begin with M-Z had their training last July 19, 2014. The Chinese Elementary and High School Faculty will have their turn on Aug, 11, 2014.
The attendance of each working employee of St. Stephen’s High School from the administration department down to the maintenance group was required to ensure that everyone underwent the necessary life-saving training.
