The Department of Education has conducted psychosocial support activities for school children in Metro Manila to help prepare them for the now ongoing in-person classes.

The DepEd, through its Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Service, launched the Psychosocial Support Activity Pack: A Teacher’s Guide.

The program aims to provide guidance to teachers in helping learners adapt to protocols, restrictions and the new normal in the reopening of classes.

“We visited some schools in the National Capital Region because we’re conducting psychosocial activities for our teachers for their students,” said DRRMS director Ronilda Co.

“Why are we doing this for our learners? Remember that for two years our children basically have their schooling at home. So, we first find out if their children are ready to go back to school,” she added.

Co said children are encouraged to do artworks where they can share to their teacher what they feel and what emotions they carried from the two years and the present.

“We look from there how we can help them to be ready every day this school year,” she added.
