Pupils received customized notebook from Governor

Pursuing a legacy endeavor to grade schools, the provincial governor, Hon. Geraldine "Jade" Ecleo, gives away 9,000 pieces of personalized and made-to-order notebooks to all grade 2 and 3 pupils of Dinagat Islands.

A total of 105 elementary schools comprising from the seven school districts of Albor, Cagdianao, Dinagat, Loreto, San Jose, Rizal and Tubajon, have benefited from the governor's generosity.

Dr. Teofila Cabatuan, School Division Superintendent, has provided data that about 2,745 Grade II pupils and 2,809 Grade III pupils within the province have acknowledged and acquired said notebook.

Governor Jade has personally distributed these notebooks to the pupils of such recipient schools as: San Jose Central, Aurelio, Sta. Cruz, Mahayahay, Dinagat Central, Doña Helen, and Edera Elementary Schools.

In response, the administrators, teachers, and beneficiary pupils showed their warm welcome to the Governor during her visits to their respective schools, and gave her due appreciation and support for her genuine legacy endeavor to the underprivileged pupils of the province of Dinagat Islands.

She is definitely one of the model politician that recognized the value of children education. We are hoping that governors are not only donating for the buildings but also those basic needs of individual pupils like notebook, uniform, bags, science equipment and laboratory manuals. Of course some give multimedia equipment like computers and television sets. We just hope they spend not only on donating things but also participate in school management and evaluation. I wonder if the governors, mayors and congressman have team that regularly monitor schools progress.
