MANILA — Senator Lito Lapid, in a resolution, congratulated and recognized Dagupan’s Bonuan Boquig National High School (BBNHS) for taking environmental action en route to earning the 2022 World’s Best School accolade.

Lapid praised the work made by the Pangasinan Public High School to recover destroyed mangroves and repair the environmental damage brought on by Typhoon Ondoy (also known as Ketsana internationally) in 2009 by filing Senate Resolution (P.S. Res.) No. 278.

“Binabati ko ang mga mag-aaral at guro mula sa BBNHS sa inyong prestihiyosong karangalan at pagkilalang natanggap,” Lapid said.

“Ako ay naniniwala na ang inyong kadalubhasaan at makabagong mga kasanayan sa edukasyon ay magsisilbing inspirasyon sa iba pang mga paaralan at guro upang mapabuti pa ang kalidad ng edukasyon, sa loob at labas ng bansa,” the senator added.

Lapid cited in his resolution that the BBNHS has been a fierce advocate of the environment, educating their students on the importance of environmental preservation and protection, and has started many projects for their students to participate in and learn from.

“Napakagandang hakbang na nakikipagtulungan ang ating mga paaralan sa kanilang mga lokal na komunidad para mas mapaigting pa ang kanilang mga adbokasiya para sa kapaligiran,” Lapid said.

The school triumphed over other competing schools from Argentina, Canada, Columbia, Greece, Malawi, Palestine, and the United Arab Emirates to reach the international finals, beating out schools from those nations as well as the International School of Zug & Luzern in Switzerland and the Green School of Bali in Indonesia.
