Baguio City scout councilors tackle environmental, social issues

Oct 14, 2017

As part of their training for leadership and socio-civic duties, Scout Councilors (SC) from the city’s public and private secondary schools tackled 28 proposed resolutions and ordinances during the session last Monday afternoon.
This, after turn-over rites where 81 boy and girl scouts sat as Scout Officials for a Day (SOFAD), led by Scout Jemma Sabelo from Easter College High School (ECHS) as congressman; Roald Eras Xavier Bautista from Baguio City National High School (BCNHS) as mayor; Loida Faith Dalingay of the same school as vice-mayor; councilors, city department and assistant department heads, judges in the municipal and regional trial courts and some utility institutions.
Included in the matters discussed in the scout council are the monitoring and prohibition of mercury (Hg) use in gold buying stations shops especially in the city market. SC Angelica Agnes Acay (Don Bosco High School) requested that concerned offices including the Permits and Licensing Division (PLD) of the mayor’s office educate gold buyers as to the ill-effects of Mercury on the populace’s health. Business permit approval takes place after the education campaign, Acay further said.
SC Jean Michael Tejada (DBHS) proposed that big establishments, and schoolsl, maintain their own materials recovery facility (MRF), as SC Chardin Seguiban (University of Baguio High School) urged that trash bins be installed along Session road, Burnham Park and tourist spots
SC Khrisna Lobchoy (ECHS) requested for waiting sheds where needed, and street lights for general safety.
Scout Councilor Alexandra Krisha Danielle Tagorda (UB Science High School) wanted to try out the Infrared garbage proximity declogging sensor in city roads, from a thesis produced by students of her school.
The active promotion of garbage sewage and disposal in the academe and government offices, and strict implementation of traffic and transportation ordinances was the concern of SC Princess Jun Abata (Saint Louis High School).
SC Brevard Josh Nawen (ECHS) also wanted drivers to undergo trainings before practicing their profession; the anti-mendicancy law be strictly implemented; and that bars be relocated at least 500 meters from school areas.
SC Robert Sabelo (ECHS) strongly urged that all offices implement the Magna Carta for Persons with Disability (PwDs); while SC Ronald IvanValdez (ECHS) urged for a sports program for public and private high schools, with funds for sports competition winners from the city. Acay has also proposed for a code of conduct for sports.
For the safety of students, the presence of uniformed policemen in schools was requested by SC Angel Bumangil (Pines City National High School); as with plans for immediate mobilization of barangay tanods during emergency situations.
SC Arvin Chua of Magsaysay National High School asked that firecrackers be prohibited from children; Andrei Kian Tan (PCNHS) urged for closer coordination as to Baguio Water District (BWD) projects; and Valerie Ann Lee (UBSHS) urged for self-defense education in the schools.
Other proposals were also considered, with most approved and some disapproved during the session.
