LAOAG CITY, April 6 – Time to flex muscles this summer the fun way through the Laoag city governmentt’s Sama-Summer Together program.
The program, now running on its sixth year, is the city government’s month-long free summer course in sports and instructional sessions for grade school and high school students.
Hipolito Salva, city sports coordinator, said the summer program offers skills-training in various ball games and will include tutorials in mathematics, computers and cooking lessons.
“We have sufficient slots for the ball games but we are limiting enrollees in the computer tutorials and cooking lessons. We advise our youth to enlist early to avail of the limited slots,” he said.
Salva said students can sign up in their preferred ball games or tutorials by filling out forms at the City Community Affairs Office.
The computer sessions would only accommodate 30 students due to limited computer units for the program. The STI colleges will be providing their facilities for the tutorials including the cooking sessions.
The weekly sessions, which will run from Monday to Friday, will kick off on April 29 and end on June 3.
Mayor Michael Fariñas has considered the project as one of his preferred programs for the youth. The program has continued attracting more youth participants since it was offered as an after-school training course. (ANL/CCA- PIA Ilocos Norte)
