By Mortz C. Ortigoza
SAN CARLOS CITY – The world class singing feat of the national anthem being sung by officials of the Department of Education was a brainchild of the new City Superintendent here.
Dr. Sheila Marie D. Primicias said the video presentations of the Lupang Hinirang at the facade of the Provincial Capitol and the ground of the Veterans Memorial Park in Lingayen, Pangasinan was created at her behest so the youth can appreciate the love of country and enhance their patriotism and nationalism.

“Para ipalabas sa mga bata na makita nila ang mga opisyales ng San Carlos City ay patriotic and nationalistic (So we can show to the students that the officials of the DepEd in San Carlos City are patriotic and nationalistic),” she stressed.
The national song evokes and eulogizes the proud traditions, struggles, and love of country of the Filipinos.
Primicias, who supervises about 1,400 teachers here, cited that the choir was composed of the Department’s officials and personnel at the City Superintendent’s office.
She said the rendition that was excellently video taped in different angles by cameras on the ground and the drone hovering above was her contribution to buttress the patriotism and nationalism of the Filipinos.
“So we can show to the world that our city division’s office is united and instill love of country to our students,”
Before becoming a City Superintendent here, Primicias was the Assistant Schools Division Superintendent in Pangasinan - 1 based in Lingayen, Pangasinan and Pangasinan - 2 located in Binalonan, Pangasinan. The Career Executive Service Officer (CESO) certified honcho had a brief stint as the acting School Division Superintendent of Pangasinan -1.
