In simple rites at Plaza Ma. Luisa Suites Inn, the four awardees were honored by members of the CPC-6 Technical Working Group last week together with Department of Education Provincial Superintendent Dr. Maria Milagros Velez and 2nd District Cong. George P. Arnaiz.

The awardees, who each received a Certificate of Appreciation and a bag filled with teacher’s supplies, were: Juliet Mercullo of East Balabag Elementary School in Valencia; Sheila Marie P. Estonilo of Salag Elementary School, Bacong; Amalia O.Samson of Sacsac Elementary School, Siaton; and Maribeth Ahito of Damig Elementary School, Bayawan City.

The awardees were evaluated based on several criterion with emphasis on their communication plan implementation and their efforts to reduce drop-out rates in their schools.

Assistant Provincial Administrator Josefina Columna, who also sits as chair of the CPC-6 Provincial Communication Task Force, said that teachers are at the frontline of CPC-6’s campaign to promote Children’s Rights in the villages. “Teaches serve as our channels of communication, our bridge and our link to reach our shared goals,” she said in her opening remarks during the awarding ceremony.

Columna said that by honoring the teachers, they hope that this will inspire others to work harder and do more to promote and advance the interest of the NegOr child.

This was echoed by Cong. Arnaiz who has earned the moniker “Father of All Children in Negros Oriental” after successfully pushing for the expansion of CPC-6 projects to benefit more villages in towns and cities in the province when the Child Friendly Movement first rolled out under his stint as then governor.

In his message, Arnaiz said that the province has been very fortunate to have been included in both the fifth and sixth stages of the Country Program for Children. “Seldom has a province been included in two programs,” he said.

The congressman is confident that said programs have helped the children in the province become what they are today. “Now children know what rights they have and they are a lot better than what they were before,” he said.

He also hoped that the program will continue to cascade throughout the province and benefit more areas in Negros Oriental. (PIA/Rachelle Nessia)
