House fetes 22 pre-kindergarten kids in moving-up ceremony

THE  22 young children of the Early Childhood Care and Development Center (ECCDC) of the House of Representatives (HRep) on Thursday held their moving up ceremony for successfully completing the pre-kindergarten program.  

HRep Deputy Secretary General for Administration Dr. Edgardo Pangilinan congratulated the children and encouraged them to nurture their love for learning. 

“Congratulations to our students. Moving up (ito) dahil ipagpapatuloy ninyo ang inyong paglalakbay sa pag-aaral. Patuloy ninyong pagyabungin ang pagmamahal sa pag-aaral, yung love of learning na nakita inyo dito sa House of Representatives,” Pangilinan said.

Eleven of the children completed the pre-Kinder 1 program, while 11 others finished the pre-Kinder 2 program.  

The children wore the attire of their dream profession for the event. Some wanted to become doctors, firefighters, policemen, pilots, while others dream of becoming a nurse or a car race driver, among others.  

“Masaya ako na nakita ko ang mga pangarap ninyo,” Pangilinan said, encouraging the young ones to also dream of working at the HRep.  

Pangilinan also congratulated the young learners’ parents for entrusting their children to the ECCDC of HRep. 

He assured those present that the ECCDC will continue with the help and support of the House led by Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez and Secretary General Reginald Velasco. 

“Makakaasa po kayo na patuloy ang programang ito at pagyayamanin (pa) ang programang ito. Patuloy ang pagnanasa namin na lalo pang mapaganda ang serbisyo  ng ECCDC dito sa HREP at yung inputs po ninyo ay malaking bagay para patuloy naming mapaunlad ang programang ito,” Pangilinan said. 

He also commended Human Resources and Management Services Director Annabelle Hufanda and Personnel Development and Welfare Group head Maritess Butalid-Zason and the ECCDC teachers — Teacher Apple, Teacher Hanna, Teacher Alanna and Teacher Ronna.

“Nakakabilib, nakakataba sa puso ang pagmamahal ninyo sa mga batang ito, ang pagmamahal ninyo sa pagtuturo, (at) ang pagmamahal ninyo para sa House of Representatives. Ito ay isang araw ng pagssaya. Lets celebrate and again congratulations to everybody,” Pangilinan said.
