Baguio City – Twenty students from Marawi City have transferred to some of the elementary schools and a secondary school in the city as of June 15, the Department of Education Division of City Schools reported.
Federico Martin, city schools division superintendent in his report to Mayor Mauricio Domogan, said 19 students from Marawi City were able to enroll in the different elementary schools while 1 high school student was able to transfer to a secondary school in the city.
He said, Baguio Central School and Emilio Aguinaldo Elementary School had 5 enrollees each from Marawi City; Apolinario Mabini Elementary School had 3 transferees from the conflict-stricken area; Jose P. Rizal Elementary School and Josefa Cariño Elementary School had 2 transferees each and San Vicente Elementary School and Crystal Cave Elementary School had 1 transferee each for this school year.
He added the lone secondary student transferee was reported to have enrolled at the Pines City National High School for the current school year.
Domogan earlier ordered the division of city schools to submit a report on the number of students from Marawi City that actually transferred to the various schools in the city so that they could be subjected to the appropriate monitoring and counseling by concerned personnel of government agencies and the local government.
Domogan solicited the support of the leaders of the Muslim community in the city to provide local and police officials the identities of their fellow Muslims from Marawi city who have sought refuge in the city because of their desire to abandon the conflict-stricken area and want to live peacefully with their colleagues in the city.
He said the local government will be consulting other government agencies and various offices in the city to prepare the appropriate programs for the Marawi transferees to help them to be able to forget their harrowing experiences in their conflict-stricken area and enable them to be brought into the mainstream society.
