The Civil Service Commission (CSC) recently celebrated its 108th Anniversary with the theme; Republic Service: Kabalikat ng Bayan sa Panahon ng Paghahamon.
Highlighting the month-long affair were various activities which includes Quiz Bee, Open House and the Visitation of CSC provincial Director John Rivera to the different offices in Western Pangasinan.
Out of the ten team participants for the quiz bee, Pangasinan State University (PSU) team emerged winner while Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) and LGU San Fabian placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. The questionnaires were about CSC’s existing procedures, rules and regulations.
A trophy and cash prizes which ranges from P3,000.00; P2,000.00 and P1,000.00 were awarded to each winning team which composes of two individuals.
On the other hand, the open house activity was aimed at showcasing the newly-built CSC-office located opposite the finance building where Council of Personnel Officers (CPO) later conducted their meeting and discussions.
The Open House was graced by Provincial Administrator Rafael Baraan who represented the governor.
In his speech Baraan disclosed that public service is a very noble time and call. It is some kind of a calling that is based not in terms of monetary compensation but in terms of self-fulfillment.
Likewise, he encouraged to live a modest life and to look at public service as public trust.
“Give your best for whatever compensation you may be getting for somewhere along the way, you will be rewarded. Whatever you sow, you will reap for if you do something good, something good will happen to you. Just keep on working and do your best and don’t think of the return for it will come”, he further said. (PIO/Chona C. Bugayong)
