CALBAYOG CITY – Tarabucan Central Elementary School is now the recipient of the new two-storey, six-classroom school building built by the Department of Public Works and Highways -Samar First District Engineering Office in convergence with the Department of Education. This building has a revised contract amount of P18.6 million from the Basic Educational facilities Fund of 2018.
“The school is a flood-prone area and most of the time, teachers are having a hard time in vacating school documents or files every time there is a heavy rainfall, to other areas of the school”, said school principal Nimfa Doroja.
This problem is now a glimpse of the past because teachers and students alike are enjoying the comforts of the new classrooms. It is now occupied by two sections from Grades 2 and 6 as well as one class from Grade 3. The sixth room on the second floor of the building is used as the ICT room so that computers will be safe in case flooding occurs.
