In line with her administration’s priority in education, Mayor Beng Climaco yesterday motored to the west coast barangays and distributed books and school bags to 416 students of two public high schools in the area.

First stop of Mayor Climaco’s sortie in the west coast was the Talisayan National High School where she turned over 250 assorted books donated by the Children’s International Foundation.

She also distributed school bags to all 163 Grade 7 students occupying the new two-storey building of the Tulungatung National High School.

Assisting the mayor were Councilors Jawo Jimenez, Mel Sadain, Pin-Pin Pareja and Rudy Bayot together with the barangay officials of Tulungatung headed by Chairwoman Esther del Rosario and the school principal Olivia E. Soriano. Also there was the City Librarian Emmy Natividad.

After the distribution, Mayor Climaco met with the barangay officials as part of her consultation process on various concerns involving the barangay, particularly security, health and education being the priority of her administration.

From Tulungatung, the chief executive and her party proceeded to Talisayan National High School where she again distributed school bags to 253 Grade 7 students.

On hand to welcome the mayor and the city councilors were the barangay officials of Talisayan led by Chairman Henry Pareja and the school principal Zandro Sepe.
