Mayor Celso Lobregat the other day led in the distribution of kiddie chairs and tables to day care centers under the jurisdiction of City Social Welfare Field Office 3 in line with the city’s consistent and aggressive assistance and support to education.

The distribution, which coincided with the inauguration of 5 projects worth P16.3 million in barangay San Roque, was also graced by Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde and Councilors Rudy Lim, Myra Paz Abubakar, Luis Biel III and Rogelio Valesco Jr. It was facilitated by City Social Welfare and Development Officer
Francisco Barredo, whose office supervises the operation of day care centers in the city.

A total of 425 kiddie chairs and 100 tables were distributed to the 36 day care centers that are based in San Roque, Sta. Maria, Pasonanca, Malagutay, Calarian, Tumaga and Canelar. The number of chairs and tables given to each day care center depended on the number of students registered in the center.

Social welfare officers in charge of the concerned day care accepted the kiddie chairs and tables saying the facilities will ultimately help in improving the quality of early childhood education.

They thanked the mayor and the city government for the genuine concern to young students and children, as they committed to do their share in giving the young sector a better future.

Providing chairs and tables and other supplies for day care centers is only one of the components of the city’s ever-aggressive support and assistance to the education sector with the overriding goal of improving the quality of education and ensuring a brighter and better future for the city’s youth.

Since 2007 to middle of this year, the city’s investment in education has reached over P940 million and is expected to reach the billion peso mark, as Mayor Lobregat concludes his term in 2013.

Mayor Lobregat thanked Vice Mayor Iturralde and the majority members of the City Council for their solid support to his administration.

The mayor hoped that the succeeding mayor will continue the projects and programs of the present administration; will have the same vision and will have the same concern and will be a role model to both the children and the women. — Sheila Covarrubias
