Navotas has won the Seal of Good Education Governance (SGEG) from Synergeia Foundation for the second, consecutive year.  

It is in recognition of its exceptional endeavour to provide quality education to its constituents.

Mayor Toby Tiangco, together with Assistant Schools Division Superintendent, Buenafe Sabado, Youth Development Officer, Kathryn Anne Hilario, and Sangguniang Panlungsod Education Committee Chairperson Arnel Lupisan, received the award during the 13th National Education Summit at PICC.

Tiangco acknowledged all education partners and said that the award was made possible by their commitment and genuine desire to give the Navoteño youth the best education  they deserve.

“The quality and holistic education that our city has is the outcome of our stakeholders’ collective effort.  It is the unfailing support of our teachers, parents, local school boards, school governing councils and all other education stakeholders that led us to this recognition,” he said.

During a panel discussion which focused on the topic, Parents and Children's Character Development, Tiangco noted that education should bridge the gap between traditional upbringing and old school values, and the use of modern technology to fully-prepare and equip students with the right values and comprehensive learning necessary in their journey to adulthood.

“We should put our focus on building our children’s character by instilling in them ethics, and good morals and ideals.  This will ensure that they can face the world head on, and justly chase their dreams,” he said.

The city conducts regular Youth and Kids Ministry and monthly Avot (city mascot) Tours to promote values formation.  This month, Avot teaches day care, grade 1 and 2 students about proper waste disposal and management.

SGEG awardees passed an Education Governance Index that includes Strength and Efficiency of the Local School Board, 50%; Functional School Governing Councils, 20%; Cohort Survival Rate and Percent Change in its Rate, both 5%; Percent Reduction in the Number of Non-Readers and Frustrated Readers, 15%; and Ratio of Spending for Education as a Ratio to Total Local Budget, 5%.
