DepEd Central Office acclaims LGU Tagum
The recognition comes with the Adopt-a-School insignia made by acclaimed National Artist Napoleon Abueva which was received by Executive Assistant III to the City Mayor Mrs. Delia B. dela Cruz and OIC Schools Division Superintendent Mrs. Cristy C. Epe, who both represented Tagum City Mayor Rey T. Uy in the Thanksgiving and Recognition Program organized by the Adopt-a-School Program of DepEd.
The first day of October marked the city’s latest achievement with the mayor accepted the award during the First Monday Flag-Raising Ceremony.
The said recognition was awarded to LGUs who earnestly participated on addressing the needs for school equipments and supplies most especially to those schools located in remote areas in the Philippines.
LGU Tagum has been recognized in the entire country through the initiative of Mayor Uy during the awarding especially on making and distributing school facilities nationwide through the Care for School Chairs Program (CFSC).
For the period of the ceremony it was enumerated that Tagum City had provided 3 classrooms, 13,004 armchairs, 3,875 desks, 404 tables and learning support towards improving the quality of public education in the country.
CFSC which has turned one year last August, is a brainchild project of Mayor Uy which is fabricating school chairs, desks and tables from the confiscated illegal logs turned-over by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and distributed by the city government to the schools in the country.
