We give Glory to God and thanksgiving for the favors and protection to us in the Schools Division of Cagayan amidst this Pandemic COVID 19, Enhance Community Quarantine, General Community Quarantine and lockdown.
To our courageous graduates, completers and achievers for school year 2019-2020 who will reap the fruits of their diligence, continue the journey of Education for Life. To our compassionate parents who are the most excited to join their children to receive another stone of remembrance for the family we join you in your fulfilment. The resilient teachers, support staff and school administrator who work together in the excellent operation of the school, congratulations and keep it up. To all our internal and external stakeholders who continuously support our schools for the growth and development in favour of the learning community thank you so much. We in the Schools Division Office of Cagayan give our Biggest Salute and Congratulations to all of you.
Let us continue our sustainable partnership and collaboration to help contribute in the attainment of National Growth and Development. Our theme “SULONG EDUKALIDAD: PAGTATAGUYOD SA KINABUKASAN NG BAYAN (SULONG EDUKALIDAD: CHAMPIONING THE NATION’S FUTURE)” is very timely and fitting especially in our present challenge the Pandemic COVID 19. I am optimistic that this batch of graduates and completers are flexible, smart and with development-focused mindset because of their extraordinary exposure to this global challenge. The 21st century skills of the K to12 Curriculum such as Information and Media skills, technology skills, learning and innovation skills, effective communication skills and career and life skills prepared you to help your family overcome this present challenge. Equipped with good manners and right conduct surely you can even go beyond. Continue working on your dreams in order that you can help make our nation a better place to live in.
This school year is unique in the sense that we do not have the usual ceremonies during graduation and moving up activities that caused disappointments, discouragements and sadness both for learners and parents .As I mentioned earlier our theme is very timely because even with those negative emotions, you are still strong and courageous thus making you winners, overcomers and champions of the present days.
Finally, I encourage everyone to move on carry with you the lessons of life you have gained from your alma mater and from the whole environment that made you resilient and flexible. I pray that our Divine Providence will continue to guide you in your travel in this beautiful life. God bless you all, and once again Congratulations!
