Donato G. Bueno, OIC-Schools Division Superintendent, led SDO Batangas City in celebrating its 50th founding anniversary held at Batangas City Coliseum and Batangas City Convention Center last March 7 and 8.

In his message, SDS Bueno expressed his happiness and gratitude to all for making the celebration a success.

The two-day celebration saw a festive mass demonstration of the different districts of the division.  Each district came up with a presentation which displayed the students’ skills in dancing.  Each performance was applauded due to its creativity of movement as well as props.

The night of March 7 was made jovial through the historic dance Rigodon de Honor which was participated by the SDO employees led by the top management.  It was an evening of glitz and glamour as attendees came in their formal attire.  The night was made memorable when everyone stayed on the dance floor and danced the night away.

The celebration on March 8 was highlighted by the coronation of Mr. and Miss DepEd 2019. Gregorio “George” D. Hernandez, teacher of Batangas National High School was crowned  Mr. DepEd 2019 while Mary Rose Vergenie C. Aquino from Gulod Senior High School was crowned Miss DepEd 2019.  They bested 16 other pairs from other schools.

The two-day celebration manifested unity and camaraderie among SDO Batangas City family.   (Maria Vinnah C. Delgado, EPS II, SDO-Batangas City)
