BALANGA CITY, Bataan – With the official opening of classes for School Year 2018-2019 in all public elementary and secondary schools in the country last June 4, the Provincial Government of Bataan has likewise started distributing free school supplies to all public school students last June 6.
Now on its 11th year of implementation, this Libreng School Supplies program started during the time of former Congressman Enrique “Tet” Garcia, Jr. when he was governor of the province. Seeing its value to the students and parents, Gov. Abet Garcia continued said program with the fund coming from the Special Education Fund (SEF).
According to Ms. Aileen Crisolo of the Office of the Provincial Governor, in charge of the program, hopefully they will be able to finish the distribution provincewide by next month.
