NAVAL, Biliran – The Western Biliran High School for the Arts and Culture (WeBHSAC) in Brgy. Tamarindo, Almeria, Biliran receives a 2-storey, 10-classroom school building facility that will benefit over 400 students of the said school.
Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)-Biliran District Engineering Office (DEO) turned-over the said school building facility on March 28, 2019.
Congressman Rogelio J. Espina graced the turn-over and blessing ceremony together with DPWH Officials headed by District Engineer (DE) David P. Adongay Jr.
The event was also graced by Almeria Mayor Richard D. Jaguros, DepEd Biliran Schools Division Superintendent (SDS), Dr. Pedro T. Escobarte and School Governance Operations Division (SGOD) Chief Lucille C. Roa. Also present were the barangay officials, school teachers, students, PTCA Officers, members and parents.
In a short message delivered by DE Adongay, he emphasized that good school buildings and classrooms like in WeHBSAC motivate students and teachers to perform well in their studies and teachings.
The P24.7M worth of 2-storey, 10-classroom school building facility is equipped with toilets and electric fans.
“Having schools in good condition, like this 10 classroom is decisive for the students to achieve the expected academic results and improve their performance,” said DE Adongay.
The DE added that schools and classrooms are as indispensable and important as roads and bridges.
“That is why our office is always in constant link with local leaders and schools for a better education of our children,” he added.
With the rapid increasing of students every year, DE Adongay said that the need for school buildings also increases. Thus, the adequacy and inadequacy of school buildings affects the education of the students.
Adongay assures that there will be more good classrooms to be implemented by DPWH to make possible for children and youths to study especially those living in the remote areas.
