ACCOMPLISHMENT REPORT
(NARRATIVE AND PICTORIAL)
ON THE CONDUCT OF CAPACITY BUILDING SEMINAR ON CHILD
PROTECTION POLICY FOR TEACHERS AT SALAWAG ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
SY 2012-2013

Children are the most vulnerable members of the society. They are easy victims of violence,

abuse, and exploitation because of their physical and mental immaturity. These can happen anytime and

anywhere. As such, they need special safeguards and care, including legal protection. Thus, in 1989, the

United Nations General Assembly formulated in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) safety

measures and protection of children against all forms of violence, injury and abuse, neglect, maltreatment

and exploitation, including sexual abuse.

The same is mandated under the Philippine Constitution which shall defend the rights of the

children to assistance, including proper care and nutrition, and protection from all forms of neglect, abuse,

exploitation and other conditions prejudicial to their development (Article VX, Section 3 [2]). Accordingly,

the Department of Education issued DepEd Order No. 40 S. 2012, also known as the DepEd Child

Protection Policy. This is a set of guidelines in ensuring the protection of school children who are gravely

threatened or endangered by circumstances which affect their normal development over which they

have no control and to assist the concerned agency in their rehabilitation.

In the said order, schools are directed to conduct appropriate training and capacity building

activities on child protection measures and protocols (section 7.I). In lieu with this, Salawag Elementary
School conducted a capacity building training on Deped’s Child Protection Policy on November 27, 2012

from 1 o’clock in the afternoon until 3 o’clock. Atty. Florante Zagada, a practicing layer of Zagada Law

Firm, served as the resource speaker of the training. Salient topics that were discussed includes Rights

and Obligations of the Child; Bullying; and Laws Governing Children Policy.
