PGLDN turns over 4.8M education fund to DepEd Lanao del Norte

TUBOD, Lanao del Norte (PIA)–The provincial government of Lanao del Norte (PGLDN) turned over P4.8M fund to the Department of Education for the repair and maintenance of school buildings, facilities, and titling of 10 identified schools in the province.

“With this amount, we hope that this will greatly contribute as you continue to provide efficient service to our youths. It is very crucial to prepare and maintain our facilities for us to have something to use when the face-to-face classes resume,” Governor Imelda Quibranza Dimaporo said.

The governor recognizes the difference between learning interactively in school from learning merely at home with the gadgets, especially to those who were deprived of equipment and resources. With this, she sees the need to provide devices and tools for the students to cope in this virtual reality so that there will be no students that will be left behind, especially in these trying times.

Assistance Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Rosemarie T. Macesar expressed her sincerest gratitude for the constant support of PGLDN to the Division of Lanao del Norte throughout the years. Despite the crisis and the alterations made in line with our education system, PGLDN continued to assist DepEd as their strong development partner. For the past months, the Division has successively received awards from various regional and national contests, recognizing their exemplary actions in this virtual reality.  

“We are very much grateful for all your support, so as a return, we assure to give out our best at all times as we fulfill our shared goal for the benefit of all people, especially in providing quality education,” Dr. Macesar said.

Meanwhile, Congressman Abdullah Dimaporo of the 2nd District underscored the importance of education, particularly in this modern times.

“Peace is just temporary if people will still live in poverty. Through quality education, we can improve the lives of the people and be more productive and creative agents in promoting sustainable development for our province,”  he said.

The education fund is from the Special Education Fund 2021 of the province. (PIO LDN)
