DepEd Siquijor recognizes outstanding teaching, non-teaching staff

Teachers and non-teaching personnel who rendered outstanding services were recognized during the Pasigarbo 2023 organized by the Department of Education (DepEd) in Siquijor.

DepEd Siquijor Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Rosalie M. Pasaol lauded the awardees for their exemplary performance and achievements that contributed to the department in achieving its goals, mission, and vision.

“This is our way of letting you feel how important your contributions are to the whole Siquijor province and the community,” said Pasaol.

She said their significant contributions in shaping the hearts and minds of the learners, as well as the stakeholders involved in the process, created a positive ripple effect within the community.

Pasigarbo is an annual event organized by DepEd Siquijor to recognize their teaching and non-teaching staff who have demonstrated sustained commitment to delivering quality education.

Over 1,000 DepEd personnel attended the Pasigarbo this year, which is the fourth since it was started in 2019, but was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the event, 36 personnel received the Outstanding Program Implementers Award for 2022.

For 2023, 28 personnel received the same award, while another 28 were given the Outstanding Personnel and Schools Award.

The Service Award was also handed over to DepEd Siquijor employees who have been serving the agency for 10 years and above.

Eden D. Bation, a recipient of the Most Outstanding Teaching-Related Personnel – Education Program Supervisor award, said she finds it enriching and fulfilling to be recognized for her efforts.

“To receive this award is one of the enriching and fulfilling emotions because such aside from the omniscient point of view of God, is indicative of an effort being recognized by the eyes of men,” said Bation.

Bation served as a secondary school teacher at Siquijor Provincial Science High School for 12 years. She was a school head at Leon Parami High School for three years and currently a senior education program specialist in the human resource and development division. She also served as officer-in-charge of the office of the assistant schools division superintendent for some time.
