CEBU, Philippines — To give public school teachers some time to rest, Talisay City Mayor Samsam Gullas has suspended face-to-face classes in the city yesterday and on October 16.

He, however, said students will have to do modular work instead.

The suspension of the face-to-face classes was announced in the middle of the DepEd Night, which is part of the city’s series of activities for its fiesta.  The suspension on Oct. 16 would be the day after the city’s annual feast.

Gullas said the performances of all 10 clusters and the division office of DepEd-Talisay during the DepEd Night were all “amazing and world-class.”

“Angay ug matarong ra gyud diay na modular ra ang mga klase sa DepEd. I was happy to witness the world class presentation of our dear teachers last night. It was their night to honor them for their hard work and efforts in molding learners into the best versions of themselves,” Gullas said.

Mayor Gullas, along with his wife, Representative Rhea Gullas, has also expressed their continued support for DepEd-Talisay, headed by Dr. Arden Monisit.

“As I've always said, our city government, under Aksyon Agad, will always support all of our teachers and students,” added the mayor.

Representative Gullas, for her part, also announced that she is giving something for the teachers, but did not reveal what it would be.

The mayor said the city government gave out school supplies to the division offices.

Aside from that, they also gave 150 plastic chairs to Camp 4 Elementary Schools, 200 chairs to Lawaan 3 Elementary School, 179 to Manipis National High School, 450 to San Isidro National High School, 500 to Tabunok CES, and 100 to Tabunok National High School, for a total of 1120 plastic armchairs.

Lagtang also received 200 monobloc chairs, 450 to San Isidro NHS, and 150 to Laray Elementary School plus two big tents.

Lagtang Elementary School also got three 55" LED TVs, two to Lawaan 3 Elementary School, and four to Tabunok Elementary School, while Mohon Elementary School received three mobile chalkboards.

The Talisay City Government also distributed 44 photocopiers to each public school and 1,645 printers for the teachers and ink supply, 50,329 books, periodicals and CCTV cameras and systems.

“All of this is for our students' benefit, so they may grow and improve their knowledge while we help them attain their goals. With continued collaboration from our school division to our city government, magtinabangay kita for the welfare of our learners. Soon, more initiatives will be developed and unveiled for the benefit of our students,” Gullas said. —/GAN (FREEMAN)
