BY: SHAHANA JOY E. DUERME

MAKILALA, North Cotabato, July 30 (PIA)—Students in  Buena Vida Elementary School and Kawayanon Elementary School in this municipality are now benefiting  from their new classroom buildings  recently  turned over by the  provincial  government. The infrastructure project implemented by the provincial government was funded P1.3 million each. According to  building  plan, the roofs and the iron grill walls  of the classroom buildings were designed to lessen the heat during sunny days and therefore would no longer require installation of ceiling or wall fans.

Roy L. Oñez, principal of Buena Vida Elementary School thanked the provincial government for the additional structure which the children need. “We are blessed to receive this project from the provincial government. This is what every school in the province needs, additional structures and facilities for the children,” Oñez said. Meanwhile, in Kawayanon Elementary School, the teachers as well as the local officials also extended their gratefulness for the completed project.

Governor Emmylou Mendoza said  the project was aimed at uplifting the quality of education in the province. “The provincial government through its ‘Serbisyong Totoo’ advocacy works for the good of its constituents and we will continue to do our part beyond words and promises,” the governor emphasized. She then urged the people to continue supporting the initiatives of the provincial and municipal officials because she said that with good partnership, everyone will be assured of better service from the provincial government.

President Aquino appoints South Cotabato guv as RPOC-12 chairperson

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, July 30 (PNA) -- President Benigno S. Aquino III has appointed South Cotabato Gov. Daisy Avance-Fuentes as chairperson of the Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) of Region 12. Fuentes said Wednesday her appointment was in response to a resolution passed by the RPOC last April that sought for the immediate designation of a permanent council chair from among the region’s chief executives. Also known as Soccsksargen, Region 12 comprises the provinces of South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, North Cotabato and the cities of Koronadal, Tacurong, Kidapawan and Cotabato.

She said the Office of the President issued her appointment as RPOC chair last May 19 but was officially endorsed recently by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). In his letter to the governor, DILG Secretary Mar Roxas noted that Fuentes’ role as RPOC chairperson “is very significant in the light of DILG’s and the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) efforts to keep the streets of Soccsksargen free from crimes and lawlessness.” “Ensuring peace and order and public safety is a common goal that we share, and we look forward to a fruitful and productive partnership with you as we continue to keep the communities of Soccsksargen safe and sound,” he added.

BY: DANILO E. DOGUILES

KORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato,  July  28 (PIA)   --   General  Manager  Romano  Laurilla,  in behalf of the Don  Bosco   Multi-purpose  Cooperative,  has expressed   gratitude  to the Department of  Agriculture  for  the P2.9  million  worth of  aid  they received  from the  agency. Laurilla  was  referring to the  machineries  they  recently received   in line  with their  efforts to  improve the quality of the organic  colored  rice they produce. Released to the Don Bosco MPC during the  Buwan ng  mga Magsasaka  at Mangingisda in  May, these machineries consisted  of   a rice color  sorter  worth P2.28 M,  rice seed  cleaner (P53,000), and double  chamber vacuum packing machine (P160,000).

In addition to these, the cooperative also  received  a  rice transplanter (P294,444)  and a  seed trading center support of P125,000. In an earlier  interview,  DA 12 Regional Executive Director  Datukan   said  the  assistance  provided  to  Don Bosco  was  meant  to  give  a boost to the cooperative’s economic activities, particularly  in their  organic  colored rice export  business. Laurilla  added that the  machineries  have  been installed in the MPC’s   rice processing facility in  M’lang, North Cotabato.

“These  rice  mill implements  really  help  in sustaining and improving the  quality of the  organic  colored  rice we  export,”  Laurilla. This  is proof, he added, of the support and  dedication of the national  government  to the sustained efforts towards   exporting   high quality rice  product. Based  on the  latest  reports,  Don  Bosco MPC has already   shipped  over  70 metric  tons  of  organic  brown, red, and black rice to  Hong Kong, United Arab  Emirates, Germany,  and other  countries.
