CALBAYOG CITY – New school buildings at Sta. Margarita National High School and Calbayog National High School (CCNHS) are completed through the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) under 2018 Basic Education Facilities Fund (Batch 3).
The two-storey four-classroom school building at Sta. Margarita is being occupied at the present by the grades 11 and 12. Before the realization of the project, the school made use of their stage and TLE room as makeshift classrooms for senior high students. As such, their principal Gloria Begonte Tamidles is very thankful for the new building because as she further added both previous venues are not conducive for learning.
On the other hand, the two-storey four-classroom school building at CCNHS is also being commended by their principal, Dr. Calick Arrieta, for its very fast implementation. It took about less than 3 months to complete. Dr. Arrieta stated it’s a big help to the institution considering the influx of students every year.
The DPWH, in partnership with the Department of Education, is always on the look-out on how to improve the educational facilities of every school. Towards this end, the community can very much expect more projects to come.
