Student leaders become ‘Little Officials’ in Muntinlupa

Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi leads the oath taking ceremony of student leaders, dubbed as “Little Officials,” joining in an immersion program at the local government of Muntinlupa.

IN celebration of this year’s National Children’s Month, 248 students in Muntinlupa join an immersion program in the local government highlighting children’s participation in governance.

The City Government of Muntinlupa, through the Youth Affairs and Sports Development Office (Yasdo), launched the Boys and Girls Week 2019 last November 25 at Muntinlupa City Hall Quadrangle giving an opportunity for elementary and high school student leaders to experience work in public affairs and administration. The immersion program runs from November 25 to 28.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi greeted the “Little Officials” as they accept leadership roles given to them during the city’s flag raising ceremony. Fresnedi lauded the student leaders and hoped that they may inspire other Muntinlupeños to become responsible youth of the city.

As part of the Boys and Girls Week, the students held an election of “Little Officials” to be assigned in various posts and to receive impartation from government executives from Congressman up to local Councilors and other local officials.

On November 26, four Little Congressmen from Maria Ferrari School, Muntinlupa National High School Main, Bayanan ES Main, and Sucat ES Zone 4 attended the Committee on Metro Manila Development meeting at Batasang Pambansa Complex, Quezon City. Accompanied by Congressman Ruffy Biazon, the Little Officials were lauded by the local representatives in the Committee.

Elected Little Officials were from various public and private elementary and high schools in Muntinlupa; Little Congressmen: Danielle Reign Cruz (Maria Ferrari School), Rona Joy Tomonong (Muntinlupa Nat’l HS Main), Jhoehannah Lumaban (Bayanan ES Main), and Rohn Nathaniel Pacoma (Sucat ES Zone 4); Little Mayors: Anika Quilay (F. de Mesa ES), Xylia Haidee Banaag (Bayanan ES Unit 1), Aira Nes Carinan (Muntinlupa Institute of Technology), and Archie Lanopa (Muntinlupa Nat’l HS — Tunasan Annex).
