- A school in Cagayan de Oro City implements ‘true love waits’ policy
- Golden Heritage Polytechnic College bans its female and male students to get into romantic relationships while enrolled in the school
- Capt. Tito Dichosa, the school president, said he only wishes for students to finish college
A Cagayan De Oro school believes it’s too early for students to engage in a romantic relationship while studying that it actually implemented a ‘true love waits’ policy.
The Golden Heritage Polytechnic College (GHPC) in Cagayan de Oro City prohibits its students to have an affair with the opposite sex while they are enrolled in the school. It is the school’s method to prevent teenage pregnancies among female students.
A large tarpaulin mounted at the campus’ entrance serves as a reminder to all the students with a text that reads, “LOVE AFFAIR will surely destroy the life of a young lady student therefore this institution prohibit intimate relationships between a male and female students.”
Aside from the gigantic reminder, the same notice is printed on teachers’ uniforms.
In an interview by Angelo Andrade of ABS-CBN, the school president Capt. Tito Dichosa said they have come up with the policy because he only wishes his students to finish college. He added that he gets frustrated whenever a student gets pregnant and stops schooling.
Last school year, six students were expelled from the school for violating the school’s policy, said a published article in Spot.ph.
