Bontoc celebrates Teachers’ Day
by Alpine L. Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The capital town observed Teachers’ Day with students by the roadside holding banners and placards expressing their gratitude for their teachers who paraded along the thoroughfares last Oct. 5.

Presidential Proclamation 242 declares Sept. 5 to Oct. 5 of every year as National Teachers Month and Republic Act 10743 declares Oct. 5 every year as the National Teachers Day. The same day was designated World Teachers’ Day by the Unesco.

Mayor Franklin Odsey, who led the celebration as keynote speaker at the Eyeb Open Gym, thanked the teachers for their hard work. He acknowledged that teachers have the greatest burden in educating, inspiring and molding the youth into productive citizens.

Focusing on this year’s theme, “Gurong Pilipino: Turo mo, kinabukasan ko,” he highlighted the influence of teachers who impart their best teachings and lessons so that students would have greater chances to be successful in their future.

A teacher by profession himself, Odsey said he knows that the challenges teachers face in their every work are complex and daunting. This, he said, is the reason the municipal government is striving to give whatever assistance it can to help the education sector achieve better results in their programs.

Odsey also acknowledged the contribution of teachers in helping Bontoc achieve the 2018 Seal of Good Local Governance Award, one of the highest awards given by the Department of the Interior and Local Government to local government units which achieved exemplary performance covering education, health, disaster preparedness, peace and order, social protection, financial transparency, revenue collection, and among others.

He credited the award to the collaborative effort of all stakeholders in Bontoc, in which the education sector is included.

“I am very happy about this and I would like to thank you for the support from the education sector. This award could not have materialized if not for the cooperation among our people and the various stakeholders in the community. It is something the whole Bontoc can be proud of,” Odsey said.

Representing Mountain Province Schools Division Superintendent Sally Ullalim, Education Program Supervisor for English, Florida Langgas commended the teachers for their role, dedication, and compassion in helping mold the youth and bringing about change in the country.

She said the countless greetings the teachers received from their students are similar with the countless people whom they helped mold and achieve the success they have today.

Also present during the program are DepEd officials from the Bontoc district, some barangay officials, principals, and teachers-in-charge from the elementary and secondary schools in Bontoc.

Out from the four corners of the classroom, a teacher danced with the rhythm of a song during the program.
