Mayor Lani Donates P3.5M worth of Sound Equipment to Elementary, High Schools
Taguig City public schools have received 34 new sets of sound system courtesy of Mayor Lani Cayetano who turned over the equipment to school officials earlier this month.
The turnover of the P3.57-million worth of sound and audio equipment was formally done at the Taguig City Hall grounds after a flag raising ceremony with principals and officers of the 34 public schools.
“This has never been done before. Our schools used to borrow or rent sound equipment but now they already have one,” Mayor Lani said.
“I want to dedicate this donation to your unwavering service to enhance our beloved city’s public school system,” added the mayor.
Each of the public and elementary high schools received one set of sound and audio equipment, an initiative that has never been done during the previous administration.
The equipment donated included a microphone, DVD player, two-way instrumental speaker system, equalizer, mixer and an amplifier.
The donation, according to school officials, is important in the implementation of K to 12, a mandatory basic education program in schools in academic year 2012-2013. The K to 12 system will include the Universal Kindergarten, six years of elementary, four years of junior high school and an additional two years for senior high school.
The Federation of Parents and Teachers Association of Taguig thanked Mayor Lani for the good deed, saying that the new sets of sound system would be used in the upcoming graduation ceremonies.
Atty. Darwin Icay, Mayor Lani’s spokesperson, for his part, said the donation will enable school officials of elementary and high schools to do away with borrowing or renting sound systems.
“The city government’s donation demonstrates the current administration’s commitment in prioritizing education,” said Atty. Icay, also the chief of the Public Information Office.
The donation is just among a number of projects by Mayor Lani. Under her administration, Mayor Lani started to shoulder graduation expenses of public school students and gave financial assistance to Top 10 students of Taguig.
Pinagkalooban ni Mayor Lani Cayetano ng mga bagong sound system ang lahat ng 34 na pampublikong paaralan sa elementary at high school sa Taguig.
Ginawa ang “turn over’ ng P3.57 milyong halaga ng mga sound system sa isang flag raising ceremony sa Taguig City Hall na dinaluhan ng mga principal at mga opisyal ng 34 na pampublikong mga paaralan.
“Nais kong ialay ang donasyong ito sa walang kapagurang pagse-serbisyo ng mga guro na ang layunin ay lalong mapabuti ang public school system,” pahayag ni Mayor Lani.
Kasama sa sound system ang isang mikropono , isang DVD player, 2-way instrumental speaker system, equalizer, mixer at amplifier.
Sinabi ng iba’t ibang opisyal ng mga paaralan na mahalaga ang mga sound system sa ipatutupad na
K to 12 program na bagong sistema ng edukasyon mula pre school hanggang high school.
Lubos na pasasalamat naman ang isinukli ng Federation of Parents and Teachers Association of Taguig sa mga sound system na magagamit sa iba’t ibang school program lalo na sa mga graduation ceremony.
Para kay Atty. Darwin Icay, tagapagsalita ni Mayor Lani, dahil sa donasyon ay hindi na magre-renta pa ng sound system ang mga opisyal ng mga pampublikong paaralan.
“Ipinapakita lamang ng donasyong ito ang dedikasyon ng pamahalaang lungsod na unahin ang sektor ng edukasyon,” pahayag ni Icay na umaakto rin bilang hepe ng Public Information Office.
Ang donasyon ay isa lamang sa maraming proyekto ni Mayor Lani. Sa ilalim ng kanyang administrasyon, inako ni Mayor Lani ang gastusin sa graduation ng mga mag-aaral sa pampublikong paaralan, bukod dito at nagbigay din ito ng tulong pinansiyal sa mga estudyanteng papasok sa top 10.
