Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and Councilor Lilani Ramon rallied teachers, parents, barangay officials and other rights advocates to promote the rights and protection of children at all times.

National Children’s Month is observed every November by virtue of Republic Act No. 10661. The theme for this year: Isulong: Tamang Pag-aaruga Para sa Lahat ng mga Bata.

As part of the celebration, a holy mass was offered at the Dumaguete Cathedral followed by a parade that culminated with a program at the Manuel L. Quezon Park this afternoon.

The four core principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child include: non-discrimination; devotion to the best interests of the child; the right to life, survival and development; and respect for the views of the child.
