I will devote the remaining months of my administration to bring to our people, especially the youth, quality education and technology,"), President Arroyo told some 2,000 students and parents gathered during the said occasion.

The President also called on the students to value education and modern technology and use these as instruments for self advancement and for the development of the country.

Education is the foundation of opportunity, President Arroyo said. This is the key towards better life. It opens the mind and opens new doors towards advancement. Nowadays, education must be joined by a stronger technological backbone, the President added.
