The Bahay Bata Center in Angeles City, Philippines, provides a home, education and a future for the street children
  Traditional teaching  Computer studies Classrooms

Within the classroom environment, the children are taught by qualified staff, with the aim of enabling the pupils to achieve their full potential, leading to their graduation. There are presently four teachers on the staff  who teach over 100 students, which also includes many children from the nearby village. 

    

Examinations are held every three months with the main end of year examination being held in March.  All examinations are conducted internally (the national achievement test is only conducted in selected schools). 

    

At the end of the year graduation ceremonies are held when the graduating boys and girls don their gowns and mortar boards and rightly feel proud of themselves.  It is then when everyone realises what we set out to achieve - to give the children an elementary education so that they may go on to higher education.  The Rotary Club of Clark Centennial does not stop there, it also sponsors the residents children who have graduated in to higher education, such as trade schools, nursing and IT colleges when-ever possible.

Here, children not only learn to use the computers, but to seek information on the internet, and use a variety of programs, including the core Microsoft products, which are necessary in today's world. A 'computer lab' to enable the students to undertake this was set-up late 2008.

    


Library support

Through donations of books and money, the center has a good fiction and non-fiction library.

      

As we all know, our future lies in the hands of our children.

      

There are three classrooms plus a faculty room which houses the computers.  Further rooms in the main residence building house the library and a proposed science laboratory.

The school runs a basic elementary curriculum at three levels, with two grades within each level, so any new child can be assessed and slotted into the appropriate level, regardless of age. Lessons begin at 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. when all students are provided with a free meal.  At noon lessons resume and continue for a further 1 to 2 hours depending on the class level.  Subjects taught include languages (Filipino and English), mathematics, general sciences, religious studies, arts and crafts.
