“Ipinapatupad ang no graduation fee collection sa lahat ng mababa at mataas na pampublikong paaralan dito sa Marikina,” the post said.

(The no graduation fee collection rule is being implemented in all public elementary and high schools here in Marikina.)

“Walang kailangan bayaran, ibigay na kontribusyon, o alalahanin pang pangangailangan upang makapagtapos. Libre ang pagtatapos dahil lahat ng gastusin na may kaugnayan dito ay sasagutin na ng Pamahalaang Lungsod,” it added.

(Nothing will need to be paid or contributed, nor will there be expenses to be worried about when graduating. Graduating is free because the local government will pay all related costs.)
