TWENTY teachers from the Mintal Comprehensive School in Davao City are going to Israel for a capacity-building program on Innovation Science Engineering Arts and Mathematics (ISEAM). The training is part of the Excellence in Education: A LightHouse Project, a collaboration between the Israel government, non-government education network ORT Israel, social enterprise PassItForward, Davao City government, and the Department of Education-Davao Region. “The start of the project is actually almost immediate. The two parties are in the collaboration and deliberation in how to go about in this sustainable program with the first chapter, which is going to be a special training in Israel. This training is to incorporate ideas on both sides that have to be the basis on the local’s design and needs,” Israel Ambassador to the Philippines Effie Ben Matityau said during the agreement signing last Aug. 15. Mr. Matityau said the LightHouse Project is envisioned to be replicated in other public schools in the city. — Maya M. Padillo
