Olongapo City's one thousand six hundred five (1,605) public school teachers and principals have received their Cost of Living Allowances (COLA) on June 30, 2011.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr. and Former Zambales Vice Governor Anne Gordon facilitated the distribution of the P3.9 million COLA together with DepEd Div. of City Schools Superintendent Dra. Ligaya Monato and Naomi Arzadon at the Olongapo City Convention Center (OCCC).

City Councilors Tet Marzan-Estrella, Edna Elane, Rodel Cerezo and former Vice Mayor Cynthia Cajudo attended the COLA distribution, as well as City Social Welfare and Development Officer (CSWDO) Gene Eclarino, City Sports and Youth Development Office (CSYDO) Head Ryan Marvin Mabeza, Public Utilities Department (PUD) Head Louie Lopez, James L. Gordon Council Scout Executive Mario Esquillo and City Nutritionist Richel Eve Torralba.

“Ang COLA na inyong natanggap ay galing sa Special Education Fund (SEF) na kinukuha naman sa Real Property Tax (RPT) collections ng Olongapo. Hindi ito malaki ngunit ang mahalaga, ito ay makakatulong sa inyong pangangailangan,” remarked Mayor Gordon.

"Natutuwa kami na natanggap na namin ang COLA, nagpapasalamat kami kay Mayor Gordon at FL Anne sa patuloy na pagsuporta sa mga public school teachers,” wika ni Letty Duero, guro mula sa Barretto National High School.

The COLA distribution followed the Consultation Meeting regarding the issues and concerns of Olongapo public schools, among which is the implementation of Child Friendly policies that live up to the City's title of "Most Child Friendly City" not only in the region but in the country.

”Kinakailangan ang tulong ng mga guro dahil kayo ang kasangkapan upang matupad ang layunin na mapanatili ang titulong ito sa pamamagitan ng inyong mahusay at buong tiyagang pagtuturo sa mga kabataan,” Eclarino stated.

The consultations also tackled the strengthening of the scouting movement - Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, that teaches independence and good governance. Another is the promotion of Healthy Canteens in public schools and strict implementation of curfew hours for the protection of children.

  • pagdating sa Issuing of "No Classes" decision on Bad Weather condition,this should be well communicated to all students and parents, meron na tayong all kinds of communication tools.Hindi na dapat susugod sa "Bad Weather" ang mga parents,students sa school just to find out "No Classes Today". Let's put some common sense into this.Time and Efforts,pamasahe and you're putting the students life and Health at risks.Hindi ba ang Health and Safety of public school students part of your "Child Friendly Policies"??? Just a Thought.

  • Ipagpatuoy nyo ang scouting movement and special attention to girl scouting.
    It seems nasa boys scouting ang lahat ng attention.
    Girls have lots of Potentials too.Look, we have two women presidents now.
    This should be encourage to each girls and to their parents.
    P.T.A. meetings is a good start,to convince/encourage them.Also,funds should be provided to girls who can't afford uniforms and other expenses.Donations from banks and other businesses providing services to Olongapo residents should be ask for charity.
