Good Day Dept Ed,

I'm requesting to have my daughter change her last name. She's an incoming Grade V and having difficulty enrolling her since someone submitted an invalid birth cerficate when she was in Grade 1. I already got the PSA original Birth Certificate but the school stated I should back to her old school to have it corrected. 

Please help me to have this resolved.
