To lure more grade six students to take the Philippine Science High School National Competitive Examination, selected faculty members started on June 26 what is termed NCE caravan or school-to-school promotion of the NCE.
Values Education teacher Armin Apostol distributed NCE application forms to selected elementary and central schools in Partido on June 26 and Rinconada area on June 27.
The Camarines Norte caravan on June 28 was spearheaded by English teacher Jerry Noveno and research teacher Ferly Lovete, who went to as far as Vinzons town for said purpose.
Next week Apostol and Noveno will visit various schools in Albay, which have been feeders of scholars in the campus.
Based on the schedule, the NCE caravan will also go to the first to third districts of Camarines Sur, Sorsogon, and the island provinces of Masbate and Catanduanes.
The NCE caravan is a month-long undertaking designed to invite more grade six pupils to take the NCE and make schools aware of the existence of a PSHS campus here in Goa, Camarines Sur.
Filled-out NCE application forms must be submitted on or before August 2 at the campus or provincial DOST offices.
This year’s NCE is scheduled on Sept. 28 in seven testing centers across the region.
