The faculty & staff and selected students joined in the celebration of the 115th Independence Day of the Republic of the Philippines today.
Led by no less than Campus Director Elsie Ferrer, the group joined in the parade that started at the Partido State University grounds and ended at the Goa Sports Complex.
With the school’s employees were selected third- and fourth-year students who carried with them drum sets to provide music during the parade.
Following the parade was a program which was keynoted by Camarines Sur’s Schools Division Superintendent Gilbert Sadsad who briefly explained the features of the K-12 curriculum that has recently been signed into law by President Benigno Aquino III.
Sadsad also stressed on freedom and independence not being absolute and encouraged the crowd to get rid of selfish interests and intentions that continue to “imprison” the Filipinos.
Alongside the Independence Day celebration, the Orgulyo Kan Goa Festival was also officially launched, culminating on the town fiesta on June24.
