In pursuit of the City Government of Valenzuela to promote and sustain the culture of success in the education sector, 36 exemplary individuals, who demonstrated remarkable dedication to their work and effective educational leadership, were conferred recognition by the Division of City Schools of Valenzuela on a ceremonial rites dubbed as, “2012 Win na Win Search for Outstanding Teachers, Stakeholders and Division of City Schools (DCS) Employees” last January 11, 2013, held at the Valenzuela City Auditorium.
Five categories were coined this year for this prestigious search. The awardees were composed of outstanding (1) Elementary Level Teachers, (2) Secondary Level Teachers, (3) Stakeholders, (4) Retirees, and (5) DCS Employees. In 2010, only teachers and employees were duly recognized. This 2012, paying tribute to stakeholders and retirees further accentuated the event.
Mayor WIN Gatchalian is a firm believer that “it takes a community to educate a child and team effort is essential in preparing the youth for tomorrow’s challenges.” The collaboration of the city government, education sector and volunteer-groups in equipping the youth with quality education were generously lauded by the chief executive.
For partaking on the improvement of the nutritional condition of 6,000 undernourished children from kinder to grade six from all public schools in the entire city, through the “K to 6 City-wide In-school Feeding Program,” the stakeholders from Ateneo Center for Education Development (ACED) and WIN Mothers Club were given due honors.
This is affirmative to Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Flordeliza R. Mayari’s stance that “Building a culture of success makes everybody want to participate.” Furthermore, she believes that by giving recognition to the outstanding qualities, achievements and contributions of teachers to national development, countless other teachers in the city may be inspired to achieve excellence in teaching.
