Graduation Season Begins

A day after Easter and graduation season begins in the City of Manila, with Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada delivering the commencement address at two of the city’s public schools: the Cayetano Arellano High School and Araullo High School. Students and teachers alike flocked to the Mayor’s side to welcome him and grab the chance for a photo op with the genial “Father of the Masses.” In his speech, Mayor Erap exhorted the graduates to keep studying so that they can fulfill their dreams, and also reminded them of their roots as children and scholars of the City of Manila.
