25,000 school children benefit from Santiago City scholarship program

Santiago City, Isabela (2 February) -- Almost 25,000 children enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools and colleges benefited from the scholarship program implemented by the city in 2008.

In her 2008 State of the City Address (SOCA), Mayor Amelita S. Navarro said the city government has extended free education through the provision of school supplies, books, uniforms and financial assistance to pupils and students who have successfully finished their elementary and high school studies including college students who have finished their bachelors degree.

She likewise reported the city government was able to build 10 classrooms and one daycare center while 16 classrooms were repaired in 2008.

"We have invested a whooping P58 million to education. I could say with pride that only under this administration we have invested much to the education of our children," Mayor Navarro said.

She stated that to further strengthen our educational system, the Ad Interim Division of Santiago City was established on September 29, 2008 which will directly supervise the city's elementary and high school operations.

Mayor Navarro said that Santiago City has even surpassed the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) target set by the United Nations in the Millennium Summit of 2001 where in the Philippines as a signatory has achieved a universal primary education which is for children to complete full course of primary schooling and even extended up to tertiary level.
