MNHS ICT Department

 

        The Mantalongon National High School received 10 units of computer with accessories funded by the Department of Education last 2001. Mrs. Andresa Mirasol, SST III, designated as ICT Coordinator by Mr. Luis Carin, Principal 1; now Lead Principal of the Dalaguete Secondary Schools.



        In the school year 2006-07, Mr. George P. Lumayag, SST I, designated as the ICT Coordinator of the school by Mr. Ramon M. Cortes, the Secondary School Principal I.

        In 2008, MNHS received a set of PC with a printer and a router from the Smart GILAS institution and installed the Smart Bro residential canopy. That is a three year contract of the Smart GILAS program. The school has the LAN and wireless Internet connections since 2008. The GILAS wireless connection was then configured by the ICT Coordinator into
mantalongon_nhs1966. It was a dynamic set up.

        On November 4,  2009, the school received 11 sets of Computer funded by the DepEd Central Office.  MNHS-ICT also availed another Internet connection of the DepEd Internet Connectivity Program (DICP) which is a DepEd package. Still the Smart Bro offered us another connection. And it is the corporate canopy device installed which is faster compared to the residential canopy of GILAS. The DICP wireless router was configured by Mr. Lumayag, ICT Coordinator and he named it 
mnhs_ict2005george; it's a static wireless connection.

       Mr. Lumayag configured another wireless router on March 12, 2012 and named it 
mnhs1966_free_wifi. It's installed in the Science Laboratory so that teachers, students, and visitors can access the free wifi connection in the campus. 

        On June 6, 2012, Mr. Lumayag installed 3 wireless routers in the different strategic locations at the main campus. The said campus would have free wifi connection for students, teachers, and visitors. 
        
        And on July 4, 20112, he used the improvised C shape and umbrella type of Wifi boosters justly to increase the Wifi connection in school. And he found out that the signal strength increased to six times compared to the ordinary wireless router.

        The school MNHS has a DepEd School ID 303000 with its internet subscription with Smart Bro (Residential Canopy) Account No. 0135822361 of GILAS program; and another Smart Bro (Corporate Canopy) Account No. 0713850179 of DICP. This DICP connection configured online last December 2011 but temporarily stopped on March 2012 due to the failure of DICP budget allocation intended for Mantalongon NHS-Dalaguete. 

        Mr. Lumayag, ICT Coordinator of the school, emailed DICP requirements to DepEd DICP in-charge in Central Office and he also, 
emailed Ms. Sharon Ner, Smart Program Coordinator in the Internet for All. In response to the DICP problem of the school, Ms. Sharon emailed Mr. Elmer Guizano, DICP in-charge of DepEd. She also copy furnished her email to Madam Elena Paras, DepEd Supervisor, Cebu Province Division, Region VII.

        On October 12, 2012, the DepEd Cebu Province ICT Supervisor emailed Mr. Lumayag that MNHS is included in the Sub-Allotment Release Order (SARO) issued from the Central Office. MNHS is now a DICP recipient. The school should have to download the DICP budget allocation for the payment of the telco and fast Internet services through LAN and WiFi connections are available but subject to compliance of DepEd Internet Usage Guidelines under DepED Order No. 105, s. 2009.

        However, for the purpose of the school communication to other agencies both private and public, Mr. Lumayag electronically modified the school logo using Corel Draw 11 and Photoshop 7. He also designed PTA logo, SSG logo, Teachers Association logo and Caliongan NHS logo. 

        Now, the school has a website: 
www.mantalongonnhs.weebly.com and www.mantalongonnhsict.weebly.comin the ICT Department. Mr. Lumayag had purchased a website domain name http://www.georgelumayag.com/ from his personal savings worth Php 2,000.00 plus for one year. The school did not spend a single centavo for that. This  website is his personal site for online lectures of his Mantalongon NHS Computer Technology students. He also designed other websites that would serve as sample sites during his demo lectures to his CompTech students.
