Some parents are in favor of cancelling the Christmas Party in Elementary and Secondary schools in the Province of Aklan.
It is after typhoon Yolanda has hit Visayas, almost a month have past.
It is what after DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro set up a meeting in the Division Office of Aklan proclaiming that there will be no Christmas party in all the public Schools in Aklan.
Luistro added that Aklan was not just the only province that was affected by the typhoon Yolanda has no Christmas Party hence, the entire country.
It was also distinguished that many children fails to attend classes due to the damage left by the Yolanda in their houses.
Aside from this, the Department of Education (DepEd) was also having difficulties on those roof that has took off in some schools, and some that are wrecked due to the fallen trees.
Meanwhile, the DepEd imposed that instead of spending for food in the Christmas party in schools, it ought to be rendered to those that are in need or donate to the victims of the Super typhoon Yolanda.
