Paaralang Pag-ibig at Pag-asa (School of Love and Hope) is on its 40th year of serving our special children not only from San Pablo, but also from neighboring towns and provinces. To date, we have 270 special children with different exceptional abilities enrolled in our school, and we are continuously accepting enrollees. At present our programs and projects are as follows:
The Computer Literacy program aims to help special children learn about the use of computers and browse and navigate the internet.
Project YAKAP is a joint program of the school and PTA that aims to help our special children become independent and productive members of society.
The Transition Program aspires to help the children unable to pursue a higher education attain skills that will assist them in becoming independent and productive individuals.
Learn, Work and Earn Program makes use of the school's canteen to teach the children management skills in the home or cafeteria settings, and can be applied in the future as a means to earn a living.
The Supplementary Feeding Program promotes better health for the children. With the support of parents, supplementary food nutrients are provided to ensure that no child is malnourished.
The Adopt-A-School-Program encompasses the training of the children in reading and comprehension, writing, listening, and fine-motor skills. The school has acquired writing materials through generous donors. Videos and CDs of songs and educational movies were also acquired through donations. With these varied educational materials, the children are able to enhance their cognitive, affective and psychomotor domain, as well as develop their values and appreciation.
The School and Parent Partnership aims to strengthen the bond between the parents and the school. Cooperation and teamwork are vital in realizing the maximum development of the children.
The Parent Education and Community Involvement Program has been a lifelong project of the school. Free sign language programs are offered not only to parents but also to all interested in learning the language of the hearing-impaired and braille reading and writing.
