Mayor Yap celebrates with City DepEd
The Tagbilaran City DepEd Division gathered once again to celebrate its 16th Founding Anniversary themed with “Sailing Stronger, Reaching Higher @ 16”. This annual fete is an occasion where the City Division recognizes and affirms the valuable contribution of the public-school teachers in the advancement of education in the City.
City Mayor John Geesnell “BABA” Yap in his message underscored the proactive partnership of the City Government and the City DepEd, “We in the city government will always be your faithful partner in uplifting the quality of our education. We have the Special Education Fund to finance the city’s various programs for education. To encourage more students to attend school, we continue to provide our public-school students with free school supplies, bags and school uniforms. We also provide feeding programs, medical, dental, and laboratory supplies, various tools for vocational programs, science equipment, sports equipment, and incentives. Continuous improvement of the school infrastructure is also our priority. In fact, the construction of additional classrooms, covered courts and pavements has been constantly on the move. I am happy to say that our partnership has accomplished so much. With our unified effort, we hope to see a better future for our children and our people as we work together for a progressive and united Tagbilaran”, Yap said. Notable personnel from the Division attended the event led by DepEd Region 7, Dr. Emerson Degamo, Governor Edgar Chatto, Cong. Rene Relampagos, Former City DepEd Superintendent Dr. Virginia Zapanta, OIC-City DepEd Superintendent Dr. Neri Ojastro, City SDS Dr. Marcelo Palispis, CID Chief Dr. Elisea Dela Torre, and SGOD Chief Dr. Beatriz Luga.
