HIGH school graduates in Samal will get free “toga” from the municipal government of Samal plus P1,500 as financial assistance.
This was disclosed Tuesday by Samal Mayor Aida D. Macalinao who had been giving attention to the educational needs of the town’s youths. The mayor said education plays an important role in the development of the youth more particularly in seeking employment.
Earlier, the municipal government of Samal gave free transportation to students living in far-flung villages more particularly to the grade school pupils enrolled in public schools.
“I understand the plight of young students who find hard time in commuting daily to the school and could hardly afford the luxury of transportation,” Mayor Macalinao said.
