CSF Holds 'school Presscon' [ Monday, 11th of April 2016 | 1 year ago ]
Thousands of campus journalists from public and private elementary and high schools in Region 3 participated in the various writing and broadcasting competitions which the city hosted for the first time
In his speech, Mayor Edwin D. Santiago expressed his view on the importance of campus journalism in achieving government transparency and accountability.
“Napakahalaga ng role ng mga educators sa paghubog ng isang mamahayag, hindi lang kakayahan ang importante kundi ang kaniyang determinasyon at ‘puso’ sa pagsusulat” he said.
The mayor underscored that media is the fourth branch of the state noting that “news media is responsible to inform the public about the dealings of the government which makes it essential to the healthy functioning of the democracy”.
Department of Education Region 3 Director Malcom S. Garma expressed his gratitude to the City Government and Mayor Santiago’s benevolence for hosting the event.
“This year’s RSPC should have been held in Aurora Province last December but because of onslaught of typhoons, we postponed it and we are very thankful to Mayor Santiago for hosting this event” he said.
The conduct of RSPC is pursuant to Republic Act No. 7079, otherwise known as the Campus Journalism Act of 1991.
