The Regional Children’s Congress was successfully held recently at the SM San Fernando Event Center where children ages 3-5 years old from Day Care Centers all around the region participated. The congress was held in line with the celebration of the National Children’s Month this October.

Day care center pupils, accompanied by their teachers and parents joined the event and competed in different events such as poem reciting contest, singing contests and drawing contest.

This year’s celebration is themed: “Bright child, sa tamang pag-aaruga, kinabukasan maginhawa.”

Olongapo City’s participants won in two events: Charlotte Gallardo of Mulawin Day Care Center, Old Cabalan won first place in the drawing contest while Franchezka Lhian Espelita of New Ilalim Day Care won second place in the poem reciting contest.

In the city, a celebration of the National Children’s Month featured activities to determine the participants in the Regional Children’s Congress. Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr. was also present during the event.

“We are doing this to recognize and promote children’s rights, and to groom them to become the future leaders of the nation. We should hone their skills and talents and we should recognize these talents in an early age,” said Mayor Gordon.
