Walang maliit na bagay sa malaking hangarin na mapaunlad ang ating bayan.
Those were the words of Council of Personnel Officers-SK Chapter (CPO-SK) President Algerico Baquiran during the launch of Ismagul, Lapis Atbp in Don Manuel J. Griño Memorial Central School (DMJGMCS) on July 18, 2013.
Each of the 97 Grade 3 pupils of DMJGMCS received a set of school supplies (pencils, crayons, notebooks, art papers, scissors, bond papers, etc) and a new pair of slippers.
The activity was attended by members and officials of CPO headed by their President and Civil Service Commission Field Office Director Ma. Josefina Gepte-Buenbrazo, CPO-SK President Agerico Baquiran, Mayor Lina O. Montilla, DepEd Tacurong Superintendent Gildo Mosqueda, Brgy. Griño Chairperson Romeo Panes, School Disrict Supervisor Frank Nawal, staff and faculty of DMJGMCS headed by Principal Saligyn Richiel Ortiz, and the parents.
“Ginasiguro namon sa inyo mga ginikanan nga ginahimo namon ang tanan, kaupod ang mga pribado nga organisasyon kag ang local nga gobyerno, para mangin maayo ang estado sang aton nga mga kabataan,” said City Schools Division Superintendent Gildo Mosqueda. “Ang amon man nga hangyo sa inyo, buligan nyo kami,” he added.
After the activity, CPO-SK proceeded to Pres. Quirino, Sultan Kudarat to give away another batch of slippers, pencils, etc. to elementary pupils.
CPO-SK extended its Ismagul, Lapis Atbp. project in support of LGU-Tacurong’s Promoting and Empowering Actions for Children’s Education or PEACE Project.
LGU-Tacurong’s PEACE Project is a multi-stakeholder project dedicated to decrease drop-out incidence and academic performance in English and Math among DMJGMCS Grade 3 pupils.
SEAOIL extended a P50,000-grant for Project PEACE when LGU-Tacurong’s proposal ranked third among other proposals submitted by LGUs and schools nationwide for the Champions for Education and Good Governance.
