570 stu­dents get hired for Lapu’s sum­mer job pro­gram


MORE than 500 pub­lic high school stu­dents from the 19 barangays of La­puLapu City were hired for the city’s sum­mer job pro­gram.

The stu­dents have to work for only 10 days with a salary of P300 per day.

Mayor Paz Radaza said the pro­gram aims to give the stu­dents op­por­tu­nity to earn.

The barangay cap­tain of each of 19 barangays were tasked to se­lect the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the pro­gram.

Most of the stu­dents were as­signed in var­i­ous jobs in their re­spec­tive barangays, in­clud­ing the clean and green pro­gram.

Radaza said a to­tal of 570 stu­dents availed of the sum­mer job op­por­tu­nity. She said the city has a lim­ited bud­get for the pro­gram and could not ac­com­mo­date all the stu­dent ap­pli­cants.

Radaza hoped that the stu­dentswould­putin­to­good use the money they would earn from the pro­gram like buy­ing school re­quire­ments, in­clud­ing uni­forms.

The sum­mer job started last Mon­day and will end Fri­day next week. Each stu­dent will be paid P3,000.
