Parents and students flocked to schools across the city on Saturday (January 26) for the early registration of incoming kindergarten, grades 1, 7, and 11 learners for the school year 2019 to 2020.

Early registration is pursuant to DepEd Order 03 (Ser. 2018) or the Basic Education Enrollment Policy imposed in all public and private elementary and secondary schools across the country to avoid last-minute influx of registrants on the first day of classes and address possible issues during the enrollment proper.

“Mahalaga po ang early registration or early enrollment kasi para ma-assess ng Kagawaran ng Edukasyon o ano pa ang mga kakulangan sa teachers, sa classrooms at sa iba pang mga facilities,” noted Master Teacher 1 and Grade 1 Chair Felice Sukgang.

Early registration also prepares schools for the influx of students in the next school year.

“Matagal na po itong ginawang programa o policy ng ating DepEd na kung saan, kaya mayroon po tayong early enrollment ay para masiguro po natin na lahat ng kabataan ay makapasok po sa eskwelahan,” explained Cerilo Castillo Jr., assistant principal of Batasan Hills National High School.

Early registration is conducted in all public schools across the country on the last Saturday of January and runs until the last Friday of February each year.

Parents say the policy is effective in alleviating the hassles of last-minute registrations.

“Gusto ko lang po na maagang mag-enroll. Kasi kapag marami na kasi magulo na masyado. Tapos gusto ko maaga mag-enroll kasi gusto ko panghapon kasi may pang-umaga, may panghapon din po,” said Coney Dogong, one of the parents who register their child.

“Para hindi kami masabay sa maraming mga kabataan ngayon. Kasi baka pagdating ng enrollment na, marami na. Sabay-sabay na lahat,” noted Jomar Nas also a parent.

Meanwhile, early registration will be suspended on February 5 in observance of the Chinese New Year pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 555, series 2018 declaring the regular and special (non-working) days for 2019. Registration will resume the next day.
