Total number of MRB Night High School graduates now 471 since 1998
Nineteen scholars have been promoted to the Senior High School level after completing the secondary education curriculum through the Mother Rita Barcelo (MRB) Night High School Program of La Consolacion College Bacolod. A completion rite was held on May 6, 2016 at the LCCB Auditorium.
Christine Herbolario, the class’ first honor said in her speech, that she’s very thankful that the program has afforded them the chance at an extraordinary education. Coming from poor economic background, Night High School students attend classes that start in the afternoon until 8:30 in the evening.
The program was established in 1994 to provide access to education to children who are unable to attend the regular high school schedule because of economic constraints. It is sustained by volunteer teachers and financial support from partners and alumni.
Many of its graduates have become successful professionals, some of whom have become teachers and have returned to volunteer in the program.
By Academic Year 2016-2015, the program will cater to even more students with a projected population of 160 from Grade 7 thru 10.
All of the completers will continue their LCCian education in the Senior High School, all qualified for the Voucher Program, which will take away 16,000 pesos from their tuition to be subsidized by the government. On top of that, LCC Bacolod will take 40% off from the remaining fee which lowers their matriculation to just 720 pesos monthly for the entire academic year.
