DepEd tells school heads: Keep JS prom simple

February 9, 2014 7:32am

As high school students prepare for their Junior-Senior Prom, the Department of Education over the weekend reminded schools to keep the event simple but meaningful.

The DepEd stressed it does not want parents and students to worry about spending much for the event, radio dzBB reported early Sunday.

Officials of public schools were particularly instructed to ensure the simplicity of the yearly tradition, the report added.

If possible, the DepEd suggested that the prom be held inside the school premises, instead of at a fancy venue.

The report also said the DepEd urged school administrators not to encourage parents and students to spend much for outfits.
