On her opening remarks PSDS Maam Daylinda Vequezo reminded the school heads and teachers about how important it is to work honestly in all things they do, as the trust given to the teachers by the public and the LGU is fragile. “Ang pagsalig ni Mayor Jennie ug katawhan sa atoa taas kaayo, ug akung hagit sa atoang tanang nga magtrabaho lang jud ta nga honest. Kung naa man gani ta lapses, dapat bearable ra siya” she expressed.
San Martin Elementary School Principal, Maam Genes Lesaca also expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the Local Government Unit especially to Mayor Jennie Uy-Mendez during her acceptance speech. “Daghan nako eskwelahan nalagpotan, pero bilib ko sa Villanueva kai mas dako pa ilang supporta nga gaihatag kaysa MOOE nga among gakadawatan sa DepEd kada tuig”. Aside from the school buildings, ICT equipment’s and school supply, “ang LGU pud gapasweldo sa teacher aide and non teaching personnel” she added.
“We are mere stewards” Mayor Jennie Uy-Mendez expressed as she pointed out that successful communities are shared responsibilities. “I hope that kung unsay need sa community, you put that into consideration specially in times of crisis”. “Mao na lang na akung pangayoon sa inyoha nga Christmas gift and birthday gift every year, I hope gyud nga inyo gyud ihatag ang inyong all nga love ug respect sa kini nga community nga mao puy ang naghatag ug love and respect sa inyo, you felt the warm welcome here in Villanueva, so akung hangyo lang jud sa inyo love and support to the whole community.
