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).
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.
