ILOILO – The Provincial Government and the administration of Iloilo National High School (INHS) has sealed an agreement allowing senior high school students to experience working in the Capitol.
Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. and INHS Principal and Asst. Schools Division Supt. Nordy Siason signed the memorandum of agreement stipulating the terms and conditions of the information and communication technology work immersion on October 24.
Siason said ten graduating senior high school students specializing in animation and information technology will fulfill 80 hours of work in assigned offices at the Capitol starting this second semester.

The students undergoing the program will be supervised by a senior employee of the provincial government. (PR)
