SAN FERNANDO, PAMPANGA – The success of having a quality education that leads to employment is also the success of this country.
This was the message by Edukasyon.ph Head of Sales Daniel Macusi Jr. to the 5,000 Grade 10 and Grade 12 student attendees of the first North Luzon education fair held in the city last August 17.
“Our goal is to help students make informed decision for their dream career. Both our education fairs and website are designed to serve as a guidance tool to help students map their education pathway leading to their dream careers,” he said.
The education fair provided a venue for students and parents to discover senior high tracks and career pathways; inquire to senior high schools, colleges, and universities; and apply to these schools using the Edukasyon.ph online platform.
“Students not only can learn about their opportunities after the senior high program but also know how they can have a quality education that would get them to an employable job,” Macusi said. “It is important that we are giving the students a chance to have a choice as this would affect their future and our future as a developing country.”
Meanwhile, City of San Fernando, Pampanga Mayor Edwin Santiago also reaffirmed that the efforts of the local government on education will ensure that students are guided properly from senior high school to their preferred career track.
“Education and employment are our top priorities in the city because we believe that these two play an integral role towards sustainable development. Thus, improve the quality of life of every Fernandino,” Santiago said.
