La Trinidad, Benguet – Benguet National High School-Main (BeNHS-Main) made significant history as it commenced the very first online enrolment process among the senior high school learners in Benguet for the second semester of the current school year on October 28-30.
Among all the different public elementary and secondary schools in the Benguet division, BeNHS is the only one who was able to conceptualize, create and execute an online enrolment system through the joint effort of Imelda Espiritu, the school TVL-ICT Coordinator and her husband, Eugene Espiritu, TVL-ICT teacher.
Majority of the enrollees gave positive comments when asked of their personal opinion and experience on the newest paperless enrolment system of the school. Kinley Atopen, grade 11 HUMMS learner said that the procedure eliminated the confusing several forms being accomplished as it made things so easy, friendly and very much aligned to current technological trends.
“Very impressive, there’s no need to come to school since we can already enroll using our cellphones, personal computer at home and at any computer café by just clicking the link provided to us”, said Camille Sasa, grade 12 STEM learner.
Meanwhile, with the use of the 89 computer units of the school, Emmanuel Estandian and Angie Haboc, ICT teachers, together with some ICT students assisted the learners who opted to do their online enrolment in school.
The graphical enrolment data of the grades 11 and 12 along with the chosen tract and overall total is automatically updated and accessed at the registrar’s office every time a learner’s entry is saved.
