BAGUIO CITY, DECEMBER 18, 2012- With a goal of raising parental and community awareness about special needs of the youth, Australian company New Media Services (NMS) will give a series of Christmas treats to pupils with hearing impairment at Baguio City Special Education Center (SPED Baguio).
On December 20 at 10 AM, NMS will distribute school supplies to about 50 pupils who belong to the Children with Hearing Impairment department of the school.
Jeemo, sister company of NMS that owns the city’s first and only jeep limousine, will also provide the staff of the school with free “party ride” starting December 17-20 5PM-7PM nightly.
“By January next year, we will launch a SPED official website and our kids will enjoy free wi-fi internet connection,” added Jennifer Francisco, HR officer at NMS.
In a separate interview, Martin Eyking, CEO of the IT firm, shared that NMS is set to renovate three classrooms being used by the CHI department this summer.
“We will be installing necessary classroom materials like chairs and instructional tools for Deaf children,” said the Australian executive.
Eyking also shared that they are working on an international faculty exchange program and technology transfer involving a school in Australia. He said his company wants to help in the upgrading of the educational system in the Philippines.
Currently, NMS is a major sponsor of the Melbourne City Deaf Basketball Club which is now in Manila for the 1st Deaf International Basketball Federation (DIBF) Asia Pacific Cup. Eyking’ son Max is a member of the club and paid a visit to SPED Baguio in September this year.
Last October, NMS also spearheaded a football clinic that benefited students at Balik Paaralan Para sa Out-of-School Adults (BP-OSA) Wangal in La Trinidad, Benguet.
