In celebration of the National Teachers’ Month with the theme “Gurong Pilipinas: Handa sa Makabagong Pagbabago” and the World Teachers’ Day the municipality held the 2nd Municipal Teachers’ Celebration at Camp Kainomayan, Botolan, Zambales last September 27, 2019.
547 teachers of the municipality actively participated in the various activities throughout the day implemented by the Mayor’s Office. The teachers were grouped into 4 teams that competed in friendly Larong Lahi games like Tumbang Preso, kadang kadang, patintero, etc. They also enjoyed the various amenities provided by the camp like ATV rides, Wall Climbing, obstacle course, paintball, and zip line ride.
One of the biggest highlights of the celebration was the ceremony honoring the retirement of District Supervisor Dr. Jacelina A. Pascua in gratitude for her 38 years of quality service in the field of education.
Municipal Mayor Hon. Eleanor “Yeye” D. Dominguez on her message stated that “no words of gratitude can be told to the importance of the teachers in developing globally competitive citizens, family, centered values and continuously striving to import their capabilities,” a testament to the crucial role teachers play in building a progressive nation.
