Smart has teamed up once again with McDonald’s Philippines to create safe and comfortable places for learning that go beyond the regular classroom. They’re relaunching the “McDonald’s Night Classroom,” and it will run from September 25 to November 26, 2023.
Smart x McDonald’s
In this unique project by McDonald’s Philippines, they’ve transformed unused party rooms in selected branches into places where students and teachers can study, do homework, prepare lessons, and do research in the evenings.
Smart is making sure these Night Classrooms have FREE WiFi from Smart Bro, which is known as the fastest and best mobile network in the Philippines, according to Ookla, a leading mobile and broadband network expert.
“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.”
“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.”
– Anton V. Agustin, AVP and Head of Smart Consumer WiFi & Mobile Advertising
In addition to free WiFi, the McDonald’s Night Classroom project includes larger tables, charging points for gadgets, and longer hours, from 8 PM to 6 AM. The well-lit surroundings provide a comfortable and productive atmosphere for students who want to study all night. McDonald’s is no longer just a place to eat or have birthday parties; it’s now a place for meetings and serious study sessions.
As a bonus, participants can enjoy a free Coke McFloat with every purchase of Night Classroom deals through the McDo App.
The Night Classroom idea started in 2020 to provide a space for virtual classes and support the online learning needs of students and teachers. It reopened earlier this year, from March 28 to May 31, 2023, and more than 20,000 people in 60 participating stores across the country benefited from it.
