STVPS Paradigm Shift :
The Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Parochial School shifts from the regular classroom instruction to the “New Normal” Flexible Distance Learning due to COVID-19 pandemic. Available materials from DepEd online educational platform supporting various learning modalities within the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) period shall be utilized. The school administration and personnel are taking a big leap in ensuring that students will continue to learn amid the challenges brought by this pandemic.
“Though the country is facing an unprecedented situation, we in DepEd are focused to fulfill our primary mandate of instilling quality basic education to our Filipino learners. We are eager to push boundaries and explore new paths so that education can still continue at the confines of our homes.”
– Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones
