Iligan grade schoolers vow as junior heroes

ILIGAN City — In a simple ceremony at the South II Central School auditorium in Barangay Suarez, Iligan City, pupils belonging to the 5th and 6th grade levels took their oath as Junior Heroes.

Our intention is to uplift the literacy rate of pupils under its locality on crime prevention, thus, we have this school-based program for them to get involve, said P/Chief Inspector Ronnie D. Calungsod, station commander of the Iligan City Police Station 2, Iligan City Police Office (ICPO)-Philippine National Police (PNP), based at Sitio Nunucan, barangay Maria Cristina, this city.

Calungsod added, as junior heroes, these pupils will be our partners in the call for peace.

“Basically, we conduct lectures at the school for the children to be alert at all times, to know their community especially to hang around strangers inhibiting the area, and to help maintain the surroundings clean to avoid improper disposal of garbage where it could be a strategic place for bomb disposal, too,” said Calungsod.

After having sworn in, the 500 junior heroes were given a coloring book, crayon and a tri-color wrist band marked with ‘Junior Heroes.’

The coloring book entitled, “Mundong Walang IED,” (A World without Improvised Explosive Devise [IED]), aimed at making children learn to understand the message which calls for them to be aware of the situation and that they can attribute by simply calling the PNP or any authorities for assistance.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Military Information Team has complemented the PNP’s program by giving the information materials given to the Junior Heroes.

Two (2) other barangays being implemented with this program include Tambacan and Tipanoy, this city. (Lorry V. Gabule
