Mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has once again teamed up with McDonald’s Philippines to offer safe and conducive learning environments beyond the classroom with the relaunch of McDonald’s Night Classroom, which runs from Sept 25 to Nov. 26, 2023.
Under this innovative project by McDonald’s Philippines, used party rooms in selected branches nationwide have been transformed into conducive study spaces offering students and teachers a haven to study in the evening, complete their homework, prepare their lessons, and research online.
As McDonald’s Philippines’ long-time partner for the project, Smart ensures these Night Classrooms are equipped with FREE WiFi from Smart Bro, enabling students and teachers to connect to the Philippines’ fastest and best mobile network as recognized by Ookla, the global leader in mobile and broadband network intelligence.
“We are honored to be part of this noble initiative to create new learning environments for Filipino teachers and students, emphasizing the significance of education among communities,” said Anton V. Agustin, AVP and Head of Smart Consumer WiFi & Mobile Advertising.
“High-speed internet access is a game-changer when it comes to learning and exchanging information, and we’re glad to provide the participants with access to our award-winning mobile network so they can make the most of their study sessions.”
Aside from FREE WiFi, the McDonald’s Night Classroom project includes more expansive table setups, charging ports for gadgets, and extended operating hours from 8 PM to 6 AM. The well-lit facade and interiors foster a comfortable and productive atmosphere for dedicated all-night learners. With this transformation, McDonald’s goes beyond its role as a popular dining and birthday party destination and is now a go-to venue for meetings and focused study sessions.
As an additional treat, participants may enjoy a free Coke McFloat with every purchase of Night Classroom deals on the McDo App.
The Night Classroom concept was first introduced in 2020 to provide a space for virtual classes and support the online learning requirements of students and teachers. It reopened earlier this year, running from March 28 to May 31, 2023, and benefited over 20,000 participants across 60 participating stores nationwide.
