Is­land Gar­den City of Samal - In recog­ni­tion and to pay honor to the teach­ers’ heroic role and con­tri­bu­tion in build­ing sus­tain­able so­ci­eties and pro­gres­sive na­tion, the lo­cal gov­ern­ment here spear­headed the cel­e­bra­tion of World Teach­ers’ Day with this year’s theme “Gurong Pilipino: Turo Mo, Kinabukasan Ko” at Babak Gym­na­sium, Barangay Pi­chon Dis­trict on Oc­to­ber 5, 2018.

Pre-school, pri­mary, sec­ondary, ter­tiary of pub­lic and pri­vate school in­clud­ing Madrasah teach­ers from dif­fer­ent dis­trict joined the pa­rade led by drum and bu­gle corps.

Twenty teach­ers were given plaques of recog­ni­tion for reach­ing 30 years in ser­vice and for their out­stand­ing and ex­em­plary per­for­mance that con­trib­uted to the de­vel­op­ment of the city.

At the start of the pro­gram, the 20 teacher-awardees made a grand en­trance es­corted by the city of­fi­cials and de­part­ment heads.

Mayor Al David T. Uy rec­og­nized the role of teach­ers in mould­ing the minds, spir­its, and the fu­ture of the youths. Their in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the de­liv­ery of qual­ity and ac­ces­si­ble ed­u­ca­tion of the youths was also noted.

“Let’s us help one an­other in look­ing after our youths, let’s pre­pare them to be a model for the next gen­er­a­tion. The fu­ture of our youth lies in our hands,” Uy said.

Vice Mayor Orly A. Amit ac­knowl­edged the huge con­tri­bu­tion of teach­ers in shap­ing and sculpt­ing the fu­ture of their stu­dents, cit­ing an au­thor who was then ig­no­rant but through the de­vo­tion of teach­ers he be­came fa­mous in his field.

“Tun­god sa mga maes­tra daghang mga bata nanga ka­balo mo­su­lat ug basa, mga pan­gan­doy nga na­tu­man,” (be­cause of the teach­ers, a lot of chil­dren knew how to write and read and ful­filled their dreams) the vice mayor said.

More­over, teach­ers have en­joyed the en­ter­tain­ment pro­vided by the lo­cal gov­ern­ment as grat­i­tude for their in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the de­liv­ery of qual­ity, ac­ces­si­ble, ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion in the city.

They were also treated to raf­fle draws in which as­sorted items such as shoe racks, ta­bles, print­ers, ID lam­i­na­tors, units of an elec­tric fan, wa­ter dis­penser, and other pieces of kitchen­ware were raf­fled off through elec­tronic raf­fle sys­tem, in­clud­ing a brand new mo­tor­cy­cle, among oth­ers. /

The sus­pects’ rel­a­tives cried foul over the killing of one of their kin and the ar­rest of the four oth­ers.
