Gud day sir,
In line with the DepED Internet Connectivity Project, our school, Datu Siang NHS, COtabato City, was one of the beneficiary, to have an Internet Connection with alloted budget of Php. 4,000.00 per month, in the SY 2009-10. But, no budget was given to us, as well as other public high schools within Cotabato City, as we were expecting...
Maybe your good Office can take a look at what had happen to that Project...
