DNSC staff and faculty had an early meaningful vacation in the middle of a bamboo sanctuary in Malagos, Davao City.

Last November 23-24, 2017, DNSC family got away to rejuvenate and learn about Gender Fair Education. Colleagues from Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology and Compostela Valley State College served as keynote speakers on Biological, Sociological, and Legal Perspectives on Sex and Gender, Gender Mainstreaming and Crafting a Gender and Development Plan.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to our amazing speakers – Mr. Jhonnel Villegas (GAD Director, CVSC), Ms. Jeralyn Sacro (GAD Member, DOSCST), and Ms. Mary Fil Bauyot (GAD Director, DOSCST).

OIC-President Edito Sumile gave out a touching message, remembering how he used to encourage everybody by saying, “let’s make DNSC beautiful” when he first arrived. Now, down to his last few days as OIC-President, he concluded that, “DNSC is indeed beautiful.”

This post is also a shout-out to our outgoing family members – Mr. Joven Sepe (Budget Officer) and Ms. Lyra May Ordonio (HRMO), thank you and good luck to the next chapters of your careers.
