Due to the
COVID-19 pandemic, regular face to face classroom set up is not allowed to secure the safety of the students as well as the teachers.
Recently, laptops, tablets, and other similar gadgets are essential to students and teachers because of the new class arrangement and set up proposed. However, not everyone has the means to acquire these gadgets.
Some families are struggling with their daily essentials, especially with food, water, and electricity bill. Therefore, this online class set up is an added expense and burden to many parents and, of course, to students.
Justine Delima, a student from the Philippines Diliman’s University, faces the same dilemma since the laptop he was using got broken. It was the reason why he did not enroll himself for the mid-year classes but had written movie scripts as part-time instead.
The student’s current situation had reached one of his professors. Sir Ludendorffo “Sir Lu” Decenteceo stepped in to help Justine. Mr. Decenteceo was his teacher in the drafting course during the first semester and in the Voice Theater course in the second semester.
The professor must have seen so much potential in Justine that he did not doubt help him out have his new laptop. Out of nowhere, Sir Lu messaged Justine to pick up the laptop for him. He even was more surprised when he opened the box and seen a brand new ASUS Transformer Book Flip.
Justine was so happy that his teacher without hesitation had brought him a new unit of laptop. “Ang Mahal po ng binigay nyong laptop saakin, can’t afford this talaga (nakita ko po yung resibo) Salamat kay Sir Lu! na Prof. ko sa UP na super bait,” Justine said on his Facebook post.
Justine said that the laptop is indeed a big help for him and his siblings since they will also be into online classes. He will share the blessing to them and very thankful to Sir Lu for his genuine generosity.
