Dagupan City – The city government has programmed the construction of high-rise school buildings to address the growing number of school population and land requirements in all public elementary and secondary schools here.

This was disclosed by Mayor Benjamin S. Lim when he addressed the mass induction of the new set of officers from Kindergarten to Grade VI classes of the Bolosan Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association in barangay Bolosan last Thursday.

“I am fully aware of the fast-increasing number of students and the schools demands for land use, which require school building expansion. We will no longer allow the construction of a single story building”, Lim said in the local dialect.

He cited the case of the West Central Elementary School grounds where two to three story structures will replace the old ones.

The mayor also underscored the importance of education and the harmonious relationships among parents, teachers and students.

“Mas maganda ang samahan kung makikipag-tulungan ang bawat-isa, from parents to teachers and teachers to parents, so that we will produce better students and produce better students and productive citizens,” he explained.
“And if we produce productive citizens, yayaman ang bansa at aasenso ang buhay, ” he added.

Stressing that his administration will make sure that education will be accessible to every family, he said that parents and couples should not lose sight of the value of basic family planning.

“Trabaho ng gobyerno ang magbigay ng edukasyon, magpatayo ng eskwelahan, magbigay ng libro at magpasuweldo sa mga teachers, ngunit tayong mga magulang, ano yung responsibilidad natin? Una, sa palagay ko, huwag tayong magkakaroon ng napakaraming anak na hindi natin kayang tustusan.” Lim emphasied.

However, he said, parents must “be the first responsible” and be empowered by the right nutrition to perform their assigned tasks as embodied in the induction program’s theme titled, “School, pupil, community, our shared responsibility.”

“Kaya dalawang importanteng puntos ang dapat nating tandaan para sa ating mga anak: Ang nutrisyon ng katawan at nutrisyon ng ulo na siyang edukasyon. At kung magagawa po natin ang mga ito bilang magulang, lahat po ng anak natin ay lalabas na magaling at epektibo,” he said.

He added, “At sila’y magiging professional nurse, doktor, abogado o negosyante, sila rin po ang magbibigay ng ginhawa sa atin.”

Reflecting on his career as a politician and parent, he said the youth and students look for models from their elders.

“Ang nakikita daw ng mga bata sa mga matatanda, sa paningin nila ay tama” At sinasabi ko ang mga ito hindi upang maglecture, magpagwapo o magkampanya ng boto, but since you invited me, I want to take advantage of this opportunity to talk to you, as a parent, dahil gusto namin na makitang successful ang inyong mga anak,” he said.

He likewise urged the parents and teachers: “Huwag na huwag po tayong mawalan ng pag-asa, dahil kung tayong mga magulang ang hindi nakapagtapos, patapusin po natin ang ating mga anak. Yan po ang hamon ko sa inyong lahat.”
