The celebration was based on the theme “𝑹𝒊𝒛𝒂𝒍: 𝑷𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒂𝒔𝒚𝒐𝒏 𝒏𝒈 𝑲𝒂𝒉𝒂𝒑𝒐𝒏, 𝑰𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒂𝒔𝒂𝒃𝒖𝒉𝒂𝒚 𝑵𝒈𝒂𝒚𝒐𝒏”, which was eloquently explained by the guest speaker Professor Michael P.

He likened the teachers, Barangay Health Workers, Barangay Nutrition Scholars, and Child Development Workers to modern-day heroes and recognized the hard work of our local government utility workers, especially the outstanding personnel assigned to the garbage collection in the municipality.
Mayor Tuy also asked the Sangguniang Bayan Members to propose an ordinance for the welfare and security of work for the Barangay Nutrition Scholars, Barangay Health Workers, and Child Development Workers.
