As we cap the National No Smoking Month, we renew our commitment to protect our learners and teachers from the dangers of smoking by keeping schools tobacco-free all year round.

Our Child Protection Committees in schools are guided by DepEd Order No. 48, s. 2016 to monitor compliance and report violations of the ban on smoking, the ban on selling and advertising tobacco products near schools, and the ban on receiving donation from tobacco companies.
