CAMP SALIPADA K. PENDATUN, Maguindanao -- The Police Regional Office in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PRO-BARMM) opened a kids’ playground inside this camp Sunday.
“The school is one of the most important institutions of our community,” Brig. Gen. Marni Marcos Jr. police director for PRO-BARMM, told reporters here covering the event on Sunday.
Marcos said the camp is the only police regional office in the country that likely operates and maintains a kindergarten school inside its vicinity.
“We, in this camp, also believe that education is still the best instrument for human and community development,” he added.
On Sunday, the police official led the blessing and inauguration of the newly constructed PRO-BARMM Kindergarten School playground here.
Accompanying Marcos in the event were Mary Grace Batac, principal of the child development center, and Christopher Yu of the Cerecare Philippines Foundation (CPF).
Part of the inauguration was the ceremonial distribution of storybooks led by Batac while the CPF, for its part, donated a trampoline that intends to create fun memories at the playground for pupils of a kindergarten school.
For more than a decade, the PRO-ARMM kindergarten school has been molding and educating children towards a better future through a good educational foundation.
Marcos said the playground serves as an additional tool to make the kindergarten school a more conducive learning environment for children of police officers. Most of the kindergarten school pupils are sons and daughters of PRO-BARMM police officers.
