Navotas' Navotours all set and ready

The City Government of Navotas has launched the Navotours bus for public elementary and high schools in the city.

Navotours will be used for city-funded student field trips to museums, universities and colleges, government and private institutions, among others.

It will also serve as means of transportation for students and teachers who attend competitions outside of Navotas.

“Our public school children deserve to have the same quality of education that students in private schools have. This includes being able to go to field trips and enjoy learning outside the classroom,” former mayor and now Navotas lone District Representative John Rey Tiangco said.

“Travel fosters learning and inspires one to dream. We hope that through Navotours, Navoteño students would gain enriching experiences that would lead them to aspire for greater things in life,” he added.  

Tiangco related that when he was still mayor, he and some city department heads attended seminars abroad to learn about best practices in governance.

“One of the things we learned was about the importance of fourth space in urban development. These include parks, open spaces, playgrounds or places that encourage social interactions even among strangers. And we have incorporated this in our city development plan,” he said.

Present during the Navotours launching were Mayor Toby Tiangco, Vice Mayor Clint Geronimo and other city officials, OIC-Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Meliton Zurbano, teachers, students and officers of Parents-Teachers’ Association.
