Cotabato City LGU named Most Outstanding Local Government Unit by DepEd XII

The Department of Education Region 12 has identified the Cotabato City Local Government as the Most Outstanding Local Government Unit in the whole region in recognition of the City Government's all out support to the programs and activities of the City School's Division.

Education, being one of the top 5 priority programs of Cotabato City Mayor Japal J. Guiani, Jr., is one of the administration's main focuses. Millions worth of funds have been allocated for the Scholarship Program of the City, the improvement of facilities in almost all schools, and the trainings of teachers for better teaching skills.

Despite the perennial problem of having less classrooms for the thousands of students enrolling every year, the city is still coping up when it comes to uplifting education. The teachers have been given incentives and some of the schools have been chosen as recipients of donor agencies.

"I am very proud and honored for this recognition that the local government has been given. Rest assured that Cotabato City LGU will always be supportive of DepEd and we are open for any help that we can extend for the implementation of its programs and activities for our students in Cotabato City", Mayor Guiani says.

The Mayor has always been expressive of his all out support to the youth as he believes that they are the hope of our nation. The City Schools Division is always part of the programs of the local government and indigent students are properly assisted thru the Scholarship Program.

"Just like what our national hero said, the youth are the hope of the nation. So it is just right that we give them proper education for them to be fully equipped with the knowledge they will be needing to be globally competitive", the Mayor adds.

The Grand Awarding Ceremony will be held in Kidapawan City this coming December 19, 2011.
