For the past seventy-two years (72), Naga Parochial School has been committed to the Catholic Education of young children – the formation of the whole child and the total and harmonious development of every pupils spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, physical and social faculty so that he may successfully relate with the material world around him, his neighbor and his God.
From time to time, the school had pupils who are DIFFERENT from the rest. These are the children with special needs like Mental Retardation, Autism, Giftedness and Cerebral Palsy. The school tried to provide them with the education they needed.
Cognizant of the fact that there will always be children who are different and special, the school aspires to offer special education in order to provide appropriate educational experiences to meet their special and unique needs, thereby developing their full potential. The school believes that no matter what their exceptionalities are, they are worth cherishing for the potential contribution they may make to the community and for what their contribution may mean to others. Further, the more we do to give the handicapped the educational climate and opportunities needed for their development and self-fulfillment, the more we contribute to national progress.
During the first few years of life, the physical, intellectual and emotional development is most malleable and is most receptive to outside influence. Opportunities for the early improvement of special children are greater the sooner the handicap is detected and educational intervention is started. Aware of their needs, the NPS provides educational services as early as three years.
