The Office of Councilor Charisse Abalos together with the DTI help families welcome the new school year through access to affordable and lowest-priced school supplies and commodities
More than 40 exhibitors came together at the Mandaluyong City Hall Grounds for a two-day event organized by the Councilor Charisse Abalos in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) dubbed “Balik Eskwela Diskwento.” The exhibitors joined in the activity aimed at reducing prices of school supplies and providing parents, families and students access to these as well as other goods.
School year 2015-2016 is scheduled to start on Monday, June 1, 2015 in public schools all over the country. 16 elementary schools and 5 secondary schools accommodate the student population in Mandaluyong City that number well over 40,000. As they begin another school year the challenges that contribute to their performance and attendance also start, the primary problem being the financial capability to cover transport expenses and the cost of school supplies as well as other requirements. This was identified as the main reason for increased dropouts in past years.
Through the two-day Balik Eskwela Diskwento event, Councilor Charisse Abalos has greatly helped to enable families to cope with the challenges dealing with buying much-needed school supplies. Participating in school is crucial to conducive and proper learning and education and this begins with being equipped the much-needed school supplies used every day.
