Where are we now?
City of Balanga referred as “Tricycle City” in the past, is now a booming and bustling city on the move with its vision of “A World Class University Town by 2020”. As one of the richest naturally endowed areas in the Province, its strategic location is instrumental in the city’s development as the Province’s center of the trade, commerce, services and of course, education. These sectors have complemented the economic output from agriculture and fisheries industry which provide livelihood to a large portion of the city’s families.
Education as a potential instrument for nation building and a determining factor in the success of a country’s productivity and competitiveness has become more critical in the wake of the impact of globalization and the rapid advances in technological innovation. Consequently, the Division of City of Balanga examined critically its education system and its ability to respond to the new imperatives of education.
Considering the achievements reaped by the city through the collaborative effort of the division such as : National Awardee for the Literacy Coordinating Council (Component City Category), Best Child Friendly City in the National Level, Orchid Awardee, Recipient of Good Housekeeping Seal, Pag-asa Awardee, and CSC Lingkod Bayan Awardee Hon. Jose Enrique S. Garcia, the division continues to strive for excellence in order to continuously inspire all BALANGUENOS.
