Part of the Magayon Festival calendar of events, the annual recognition ceremonies, dubbed the Gay Palcon Achievement Award Ceremonies, named after the late educator and first PED head Dr. Ligaya Palcon, is now on its 7th year.

Recognized were schools from the province which have shown great performance in the NAT with high mean point scores by subject area, which includes Science, Math, English, Filipino, and Araling Panlipunan, as well as schools that produced high overall mean point scores.

The schools and institutions which achieved the high scores were given not only plaques and certificates, but also monetary awards.

Vice Governor Harold Ong Imperial, in a message read by Senior Board Member Glenda Bongao, said that the PGA is on a mission to create an educational system designed in such a way that Albayano children do not merely exist, but will be given the tools necessary to lead fulfilling lives.

“In Albay, we strive not only to provide basic education, but to develop an educational system that inculcates in our youth all the advantages that they would need to become productive members of the society and also become an investment that will pay off greatly in the future, both for their own personal lives and as Albayanos pitching in for the betterment of everyone,” VG Imperial said.

Imperial further stated that this system encourages the participation of every member of the community so that we can produce not only well educated students but also thinkers, and movers and shakers.

Board Member Richard Benjamin Imperial, Chairman of the Committee on Education, also took to the stage as he thanked all the teachers and principals in attendance for the great lengths they took to achieve their high performance.

“You are at the forefront of all of our achievements today, the Provincial Government of Albay, along with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Albay can, and will, provide you with all the support that we can give, but it is still you who are out there every day educating the future of Albay, preparing us for the challenges that we will overcome, and for that we thank you,” BM Imperial said.

BM RB Imperial also happily reported that the SPA has approved a higher budget for the education programs of the PGA in the coming year and this will mean better access to quality education for all Albayanos.

Most of all, he thanked Governor Joey Sarte Salceda for the full support it has given to education noting that the Governor has allocated a big portion of the budget for it.

It should be noted that before the term of Governor Salceda, Albay ranked one of the lowest in the National Achievement Test, and he created the countries first and only Provincial Education Department to acknowledge this problem, today, ranks among the highest in the country. (PGA PIO)
