Pasig also expanded the city’s sports scholarship program.

“Kung maayos po ito at nakita nating na talagang epektibo para sa mga talento sa larangan ng sining ay ie-expand pa po natin yan sa susunod na taon (If this will work and if we see that it would be effective for those who have artistic talents, then, we will expand the scholarship next year),” Sotto said.

Sotto noted the city government should support students’ multiple intelligence development.

Gatchalian said the city government also vowed to provide the scholars with additional support to sustain their holistic learning despite the prevailing health crisis.
