Free school supplies for 30,000 pupils distributed in Pangasinan town

MALASIQUI, Pangasinan -— Some 30,000 pupils from public elementary and day care schools here received free school bags with school supplies from the municipal government here.

This project was first initiated by outgoing Mayor Armando Domantay Sr. since his first term as the mayor of the town in 2007. Domantay will assume as the town’s vice mayor on June 30.

Distributed were at least 130,000 ballpens, 130,000 pencils and 130,000 notebooks.

The town has 52 elementary schools and 73 day care centers.

Domantay hopes the next administration of Mayor Noel Geslani will continue this project.

“Hopefully, this will be continued as the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) will appropriate the budget,” said Domantay. PNA/northboundasia.com
