Public school students receive notebooks under "Read Right and be Bright" program

by Jocelyn E. Morano

Butuan City (June 3) -- Grade 3 pupils from Butuan Central Elementary School and Ong Yiu Central Elementary School was the first to received notebooks from Vice Mayor Dino Claudio Sanchez in a simple ceremony held today in their respective schools.

This is under the Vice Mayor's learning advocacy program dubbed as "Read Right and be Bright," to encourage students from Grades 1 to 3 to develop a very good habit of reading.

Each notebooks has a story about "The Ant and the Grasshopper" printed at the back in its effort to inculcate to the young minds the necessity to prepare ahead and to build up an understanding on life's lesson and good attitude.

"This is our second year of implementation of the Read Right and be Bright Program with a total allocation of 15,000 notebooks for this year, to be distributed to 102 elementary schools in Butuan City", said Vice Mayor Dino Claudio Sanchez.

The Vice Mayor also belied accusations that the initiative was politically motivated as 2010 elections are fast approaching.

He explained, that even during the time that he is the Chairman of the Sangguniang Panlunsod Committee on Education, he already had this advocacy and remained consistent in implementing learning interventions giving priority to indigent school children in public schools for the past 7 years.

The Vice mayor added, "Instead of criticizing the program, the learning advocacy program should be supported." (Radyo ng Bayan) [top]
