On Tuesday, September 5, Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte announced that teachers will enjoy a 30 days break for teachers without volunteering during the School Year 2023–2024, just in time for National Teacher’s Month. It is a great gift for our teachers in celebration of their sacrifices and hard work.
“We made sure that in this year’s school calendar, teachers will have 30 straight days of rest during the break without any DepEd activity that requires volunteer work,” VP and DepEd Secretary Sara Duterte. She shared that End of School Year rites were already included in the official school calendar.
Duterte also promised that DepEd would look into ways to lessen the financial responsibilities on teachers, including restructuring administrative duties and tackling loan-related problems. The official intended to free up instructors soon so they could concentrate on the pupils’ learning with the aid of important government organizations.

“The Department of Education’s MATATAG Agenda is not just a slogan. It is our roadmap to institutionalizing reforms within the department. This includes the protection of your rights and the promotion of your welfare,” she told teachers.
Noting that many teachers “are overly stressed about their financial insecurities,” Duterte emphasized that DepEd is collaborating with the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), the Civil Service Commission, and the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) to support teachers with their loans, administrative responsibilities, and training.
