    In pushing their advocacies, all their winnings went to the Baguio City National High School. A generous donation worth PHP 100,000 came in the form of brand new ASUS computer equipment.

    From Romulo M. Flora, Secondary School Principal, Baguio City National High School:

    “Even though our teachers are trained in using manila paper and cartolina as teaching aids, it would still be better with a laptop because that’s now the common medium for instruction. And with these new computer equipment, I know our teachers will be able to deliver better lectures,”

    From George Su, Country Manager of ASUS Philippines Systems Group:

    “Empowering Filipino students remains to be one of our long-term advocacies in the Philippines. We the help of various partners, ASUS were able to transform lives of more than 50,000 students through our e-learning facilities across the country. We have witness the results of these efforts and we want to continue and expand this through various initiatives – and this simple act of donation will be one of many”

    The school will use the brand new ASUS equipment in its Hillside Annex campus, which hosts 250 students and 9 teachers. Prior to that, the school did not have a computer lab, so this will certainly help empower the next generation through the use of current technology.
