The Supreme Student Government (SSG) is the foremost co-curricular student organization authorized to operate and implement pertinent programs, projects and activities in schools nationwide. It lays the groundwork for good governance, volunteerism, unity and cooperation by providing the students various venues where they can improve their leadership knowledge, skills and attitudes. It trains students to become better members of society in accordance with the ideals and principles of participatory democracy and good citizenship. More importantly, it helps the Department of Education (DepEd) achieve its thrusts as indicated in the Education for All (EFA) Goals, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Basic Education Social Reform Agenda (BESRA).

In order to synchronize its programs, projects and activities (PPAs), the following are mandated to be implemented annually by the SSG in the school and community:

  1. organize the participation of students and volunteers in the annual Brigada Eskwela;
  2. lead/participate in the National Greening Program (NGP) and other environment-related activities;
