Themed “Be informed. Get connected. Stay as one,” series of events were held at the Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology (DOSCST) gymnasium on November 13, 2018 headed by the Supreme Student Government (SSG).
Students and officers of each of the institutes, together with the invited personnel, gathered to attend the Students’ Parliamentary in the morning. The events started with the presentation of the proposed school uniforms. The Institute Governing Units and the SSG also presented their financial and accomplishment reports for the clarification of the students’ funds whereabouts. Afterwards, an open forum was conducted to give an opportunity for the students to raise their concerns and issues regarding the school, the administration and their respective institute.
The yearly celebration of Solidarity Day took place in the afternoon aiming to promote and celebrate good relationship within the student population of the college and to develop oneness.
Mr. Rodrigo A. Salimaco, OSA Head, reminded the students of the true essence of Solidarity and left a quote saying, “To be one, to be united, is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.”
