In the name of public service, Molly M. Ablaza, EdD, gladly accepted from Jonathan G. Sadey, EdD, the key of responsibility as the Public Schools District Supervisor (PSDS) for Kibungan district during a simple Turnover Ceremony at Kibungan Central School on Jan. 15.
“No other place like home,” jokingly exclaimed Ablaza during her acceptance speech.
She then solicited the full support of the stakeholders for the continued delivery of quality education.
“I ask the stakeholders that the support you have given to Mr. Sadey will continue so that we can still deliver the blended learning,” explained Ablaza, who served as PSDS of Kapangan District.
On the other hand, Sadey, who will be the PSDS in Kapangan, emphasized that turnover of leadership would always result to both good and bad, which is summed up by “mayat-lawa (good-bad)”, a popular Kankana-ey expression in Kapangan town.
“The ‘mayat-lawa’ is applicable because it’s good that I’ll be nearer to my home (Kapangan) but it’s bad since I’ll be leaving Kibungan this soon,” he explained.
He added, “Thank you very much to the local government for the help you have extended to DepEd specially this time of pandemic in delivering the blended learning, also to the DepEd family, parents and other stakeholders, like the PNP.”
Sadey, however, hoped that the teachers had learnt something from him throughout his stay.
“I hope that you have learned something from me that you can apply in your respective schools,” he said addressing it to both elementary and high school teachers.
Meanwhile, said ceremony was witnessed by Vice Mayor Edwin G. Nitron as representative of the mayor, some municipal councilors, Kibungan PCPT Douglas M. Akistoy, Jr., Kibungan district school heads together with teaching and non-teaching staff, the district PTA Federation president, and representatives from Kapangan district.
