Parañaque to give HS students P500 monthly allowance

Parañaque to give HS students P500 monthly allowance

Starting this June, junior and senior public high school students in Parañaque City will receive an annual allowance of P5,000, Mayor Edwin Olivarez announced over the weekend.

Olivarez said the city government, through a city council-approved ordinance, allocated P300 million for the monthly allowance of about 48,000 deserving high school students.

Covered under the special allowance program are students from Grade 7 to 12 of public schools within Parañaque and those listed in the Department of Education roster.

Qualified students will receive a monthly allowance of P500 through ATM cards from a government-owned bank, Olivarez said.

Parañaque City public information chief Mar Jimenez said the mayor, city councilors, and school officials would personally distribute the ATM cards at the different school campuses during a simple program this week.

Olivarez said the objective of the allowance was to remove financial constraints that could be discouraging students from attending school and at the same time helping students to augment their expenses while advancing their knowledge.

“Students will now have no reason to miss school,” Olivarez said.

Under the ordinance, the P500 allowance will be given to qualified students starting this month, provided they attend their classes 80 percent of the time.

Teachers will be in charge of monitoring the students’ attendance, the ordinance said.
