Meanwhile, Brother Philippines will be providing training for the school’s staff on how to utilize the printers.

“Ito po, mga magulang, ay pagpapakita ng mga opisyales sa pamahalaan at mga private sectors ng kahalagahan ng pagtutulungan para sa kinabukasan ng inyong mga anak (This, dear parents, is the government officials and the private sectors showing the importance of collaboration for the future of your children),” declared Muntinlupa Mayor, Atty.

“Tulong-tulong kaya mabilis ang pagunlad ng ating lungsod, ng ating pamahalaan (We help each other, which is why there is quick progress in our city and in our government),” he said.

PCPPI reiterated its commitment to building the community in which the company has been a part of for many years. The company’s main bottling plant and Head Office is located in Tunasan, Muntinlupa.

“We are proud that our head office is here, and we strive to contribute to the progress of our home,” said Atty. Jun Manuel, PCPPI Vice President for Legal, Government and Corporate Affairs. “We are proud to part of the community and we are always here to be a partner of the DepEd and of the City of Muntinlupa.”

As the students and their parents lined up to receive their school kits from the Muntinlupa LGU, Fresnedi reminded the parents of their role in ensuring quality education:

“Mga magulang, tiyakin po ninyo ang inyong responsibilidad na ang inyong mga anak ay sadyang nag-aaral.”
