AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Due to scheduling conflicts, not all students who wish to take computer classes
are able to take computer classes, so July began an afterschool outreach program to all interested fourth year students. It is to
introduce fourth year students to computers and focused on those students who had no previous experience with computers. It is amazing
to see the faces of the students as they go from never having touched a computer to being able to use the internet to research for
school. Once all interested fourth year students who have no experience with computers have completed the course, we would like to
look into providing another afterschool class that covers more advanced topics.

We are very excited to partner with Bicol Relief as we attempt to make
a difference in the lives of the youth of the area who are the future of the Philippines. Through the kind generousity of Bicol
Relief, MORMS has received five new desktop computers which will be used by the students and teachers. This donation will
help MORMS continue it's mission of creating a communmity of empowered learners who are globally competitive. Bicol Relief was founded
after Typhoon Reming by Americans who wanted to help those people effected. To read more about the work that Bicol Relief
is doing you can go to www.bicolrelief.org/
Empowering Computer Education
After several months of delay, MORMS now has an ICT center for teachers
and students. The center includes five computers donated by Bicol Relief and eight computers donated through the Peace Corps Partnership
program. These computers will be very helpful for the teachers in the lesson preparation, lesson plan writing, and grading. The students
will be able to research and encode their projects. Workshops will be held to help familiarize the teachers with the computers. Even
before the official unveiling ceremony, the computers were being used daily by teachers, student teachers, and students.
