Recognizing the impact of reduced mobility among children brought about by the pandemic, the Department of Education (DepEd) has launched its national calisthenics exercise program to promote an active lifestyle among learners and other stakeholders.
“The Department developed Galaw Pilipinas as a response to the impact of the pandemic to our learners’ reduced physical activities that affected their overall health,” said Education Secretary Leonor Briones in a statement issued Wednesday, Feb. 23.

Perhaps the most pressing challenges the school faces are that of ensuring that all learners become competent readers. Learners who experienced problems in reading quickly fall behind their more skilled classmates in their ability to decode and comprehend text. The initiative is in response to the rapidly changing learning environment of present and future learners and will introduce aggressive reforms to globalize the quality of basic education in the Philippines.
“We always remind ourselves that our constitutional mandate to provide every Filipino not only access to education but to basic quality education. We have realized that we are facing the reality that we still have much to do in responding to the constitutional mandate as far as quality education is concerned,” Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones explained.
