Eleven of the inmates were formally declared as graduates from high school level and six from elementary level.

All of the graduates passed the Accreditation and Equivalency Test given by the DepEd during the duration of their studies.

Jail Chief Inspector Jesus V. Singson, Warden of NCDJ said and the Provincial Government of Cotabato and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology Region 12 continue to exert efforts to help the inmates attain education notwithstanding the jail terms they were serving in NCDJ.

Dr. Julie Lumogdang, District ALS Supervisor and Rufino M. Belvis, District ALS Coordinator as representatives of DepEd presented and declared the 17 inmates as ALS graduates.

Provincial Administrator Van D. Cadungon, who represented Governor Emmylou “Lala” J. Taliño-Mendoza at the graduation assisted in giving the certificates to the graduates.

Clad in white toga, the inmates marched with their parents and relatives and received their certificates from the DepEd.

The graduation of the inmates was the second commencement exercises after last year where several inmates also successfully finished the ALS in NCDJ.

In his message, PA Cadungon accentuated the significance of education in every one’s life whether young or old or whether civilians or those inside jails.

He commended the NCDJ for actively partnering with DepEd in providing education to its inmates.

“When we have education we can reach our dreams regardless of what situation or condition we are now.  I urge the graduates to do your best and continue learning as you will make use of it now and in the future”, PA Cadungon told the graduates.

Under the ALS, the inmates become students as they as they undergo the Equivalency Examination.

Gov. Taliño-Mendoza for her part conveyed her warm congratulations to the inmates and appreciation of the ALS as a way to help the inmates in becoming literate individuals.

“Even behind bars the inmates are still given the chance to be morally upright, equipped with knowledge so they can be one with the community in building the nation once they are free again”, she said. (JIMMY STA. CRUZ/PGO Media Center)
