For its annual quest for young aspiring journalists, Department of Education – National Capital Region held its 2019 Regional Schools Press Conference at Aurora A. Quezon Elementary School Malate, Manila. More than a thousand young aspiring journalists competed in different categories vying to be the next regional representative in the 2020 National Schools Press Conference to be hosted by Region II (Cagayan Valley Region).
During the opening program, SDO Manila’s Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Ms. Marivic R. Leaño warmly welcomes the delegates from the 16 divisions of the region. She particularly thanked the principal of Aurora A. Quezon Elementary School Ms. Trinidad R. Galang for accepting the challenge of hosting the event. Ms. Leaño’s fellow Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Sheryll T. Gayola was also present during the said event.
DepEd NCR’s newly installed Regional Director Malcolm S. Garma and Assistant Regional Director Carlito Ricafort graced the event were accompanied by the Chief of the Curriculum of Learning Management Division Dr. Genia L. Santos.
But the program’s highlight was arrival of the currently being called as “Internet Rockstar”, no less than Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso. “Yorme” Isko (as being he was being referred to by many) was program’s Guest of Honor who was introduced by no less than Dr. Jenilyn Rose B. Corpuz, Schools Division Superintendent of DepEd Manila.
For his speech, Mayor Isko, highlighted the important role of the parents and educators in forming the young mind of the aspiring journalists as they will play a vital role in the leaderships of the future.
