The foundation’s computerization project is an off-shoot of the Adopt-A-School program of the Department of Education and Culture (DepED).
TMPF’s program started the transformation of the traditional school to a digital school by equipping it with computers, internet connection, smart TVs, printers and other related gadgets.
The P10.88 million project started in 2016, equipping the classrooms with digital technology — installing 55-inch smart television sets in 53 classrooms; and providing 54 laptops; and 11 printers.
Following that, the Toyota Foundation connected all the classrooms to the Internet, installed WIFI connectivity; and improved the library with computers and digital learning kits.
Pulong Sta. Rosa Elementary School (PSCES), with a student population of 3,500, is the best Performing Elementary School in 2018. Mrs. Nelia Tabuyo is the principal of the PSCES.
