The month of June heralds in the beginning of the School Year.

How are the parents and guardians coping with enrollment? Let us brace for the usual school opening headaches knowing the high tuition fees, board and lodging and other related expenses which have to be met.
This is a University Town, and the lifeblood of this community mainly flow from the students who attend the universities and colleges.
In addition, June means the start of the rainy months. Is the city ready for the possibility of floods? Are the roads leading to our schools free from flooding?
As schools prepare for the opening of classes, the teachers and principals should take to heart the lessons learned from the previous year.
Are the floors of our public schools elevated so that flood waters will not reach its level? Were the leaking roofs repaired by the volunteers of the Brigada Eskwela program?
The Department of Education Region VII kicked off the Brigada Eskwela program in our province – and the volunteers are supposed to adequately prepare the schools and its environs for the pupils and students.
How about the digging and unclogging of canals, drainage systems of the main streets of the city? Did the City Government address the issue of flooding by mobilizing its people and resources to prepare for the school opening? Or do we have to expect the floods to submerge portions of our streets?
The task which will confront the principals and teachers of private and public schools, universities and colleges in this city is daunting. They have to brace for the possibility of floods and its resultant effects on their infrastructure and supplies. As it is, textbooks, desks and other facilities are always in short supply. With the rains and flooding, the school administrators have to be disaster ready and to teach the students and pupils how to act in times of flooding.
As we welcome the new leadership of the City, it is important to remind them of their responsibility to address the safety of our students and pupils, and to ensure measures to prevent the clogging and flooding of our main streets.
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
