To name a few of the capturing moments for each party list, candidates came together to create and prepare their flyers, posters even the use of Facebook with their parent’s consent. At the same time, they took time to think and compose what will be their advocacies for running in their desired positions. Enduring the needed tasks, aspiring candidates visited different classrooms for their school campaign to convey what they could do for the school and the learners. Miting de Avance was held last June 8 in the School Multipurpose Hall and the election the following day then finally the oath-taking ceremony with Mr. Edward F. Banay, Project Development Officer 1 School Governance and Operation Division who delivered a short message. Maria Lilia S. Sanchez, SELG Master-Teacher In-charge acted as the officiating official on behalf of the school head Mr. Vito L. Mengote.
Indeed, change is about to happen as the newly elected SELG officers 2023 of PES will work hand in hand with the school. Mabuhay!
