Navotas Rep. John Rey Tiangco started the distribution of financial aid for junior high school students in the city just before they went on vacation.

About 1,100 students from public schools received a P5,000 allowance from the city government.

Tiangco reminded parents to make sure they spend the amount only for their children’s schooling.

“Times are hard; spending the P5,000 in a day is easy to do. That’s why we must ensure that it shall be used only for the purpose it was intended for—our children’s education,” he said.

The neophyte lawmaker also reminded students to pursue their studies and strive to complete their education.

“Your parents and I have the same wish for you—that you would earn your diploma and be able to build a better future for yourself,” he said.

Tiangco said students who want to purse a college degree may enroll for free at the Navotas Polytechnic College.

Meanwhile, those who wish to take technical-vocational courses may also study for free at Navotas Vocational Training and Assessment Institute.
