The support given to our Students' Leadership is a support to our future Government.

Recently, the Division of City of Balanga conducted its Second Leadership and Team-Building Seminar at Bataan National High School. This two-day seminar aimed to highlight the essence of student leadership to the school community. It allows the school youth leaders to experience being with their fellow youth leaders, share their potentials, and collaborate.

Under the supervision of the School Governance and Operation Division headed by Dr. Flordeliza A. Del Rosario, in cooperation with the First Pacific Leadership Academy Bataan Chapter-Team Kabisig (a Future Thought Leaders group of Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan), headed by Ms. Yrha S. Layug, and the overall coordinator, Mr. Edryll R. Contreras, training was made possible. This training for all the Supreme Pupil Government Presidents and Vice Presidents of Division of City of Balanga together with the Supreme Student Government of Bataan National High School and City of Balanga National High School was indeed a success. Not only the 36 student leaders from elementary and 36 student leaders from secondary were given the opportunity to attend the seminar but also the 20 schools' student organization advisers. Several relevant leadership talks like personality development and 21st century student leaders, were discussed for day 1 and team building activities for day 2 took place.

This seminar-training aims not only to develop their leadership skills, but also for their holistic growth. To target this objective, the facilitators together with the coordinators of this event, made a contemporary type of activities, for they believe that leadership is best learned through experience. Mind games and obstacles were given to all, featuring different "palaro ng lahi" which promote the spirit of Patriotism. This whole training revolved on different core values, "Maka-Diyos, Maka-Tao, Maka-Kalikasan at Maka-Bansa" which is the true heart of an effective servant leadership.

"I want them to feel that in leadership there's creativity, love, passion, collaboration. I want them to feel that all they had in these two days seminar are worth sharing to their co-youth school leaders. That leadership is not all about being a front liner but sometimes they can be an inspiration to others to partake towards school betterment." (Mr. Contreras, Chairman of the seminar).

The said seminar for the young leaders is a tangible proof that the City Division of Balanga is aware of the beneficial effect of honing the future leaders of our government.g
