PNP ‘Project Alkansya’ launched at LC Central School

Laoag City police chief P/Supt. Wilson Joseph F. Lopez announced that the PNP Project Alkansya was finally launched in Laoag City recently, particularly at the Laoag Central Elementary School.

The launch, held August 3, was attended by Laoag’s different schools divisions head with PNP regional operations officer Alejandro Valerio as special guest.

According to Lopez, the said project aims to teach people about the value of saving money for the future and it should start with school children.

At least 166 piggy banks were distributed to pupils of the said school.

Lopez added that other schools in the city—both elementary and secondary—would also be visited provided sponsors would be available.

Reacting to this, city schools superintendent Dr. Cecilia P. Aribuabo expressed her appreciation to the PNP for choosing the city division as their launch site.

This project, Aribuabo said, would encourage pupils to become thriftier, especially now that they are still young.

During the said launch, Aribuabo mentioned that there is a massive campaign on how to save money, which she said is a very commendable program.

Aribuabo is also hopeful that if children would learn to save, they would have enough awareness to avoid gambling.

Aribuabo further stated that teachers were also advised to incorporate in their values education the habit of thriftiness.

The choice of the Laoag Central Elementary School as pilot school for the launch was a random one, according to Aribuabo and its accessibility and location may have also been considered as she stressed that there has been no favoritism.

She added that the Central School was also a good choice since it has been awarded as one of the best schools in Ilocos Region.
