Public school teachers in Cebu City to get P10K X’mas bonus


Around 6,000 public school teachers in Cebu City will receive a total of P10,000 as Christmas bonus from the city government.

Another P5 million has been allocated for the teachers’ Christmas parties. This amount is part of the city’s 2019 annual budget.

Mayor Edgardo Labella said the public school teachers deserve the bonus just like the employees of City Hall and other state workers. (

“For me, our public school teachers are the most overworked and underpaid and that is an understatement,” according to him.

“I pity them so we will give them something to make them happy for Christmas. We will give P10,000,” Labella added.

The teachers will receive the bonus either on the second week or third week of December.
