New classrooms heaven sent for school kids

Gov. Chatto takes pride in Bayanihan Programs

For schoolchildren who have been holding classes in a makeshift nipa classroom, or in their chapel, or in an old health center, a new two classroom building is heaven sent.

Such is the gratitude of schoolchildren and parents alike in Barangay San Vicente, in the town of Trinidad as they inaugurated the new two-classroom building constructed under the Long Term Partnership Program of the Provincial Government of Bohol, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), and the Department of Education (DepEd).

San Jose, San Miguel townsfolk consider a precious gift the new two-classroom building that replaced one which resembled that of a chicken pen in San Jose Primary School.

Gov. Edgar M. Chatto takes pride in the success of this unique convergence of efforts, where the Provincial Government allocates P875,000 for the construction, which is done by the 53rd Engineering Support Battalion, for which DepEd also counterparts with a new classroom building at a school in another part of the province that needs it.

The private sector also shares in this partnership through the provision of additional needs such as school supplies and equipment, and sports equipment and clinics, among others through the Bayanihan Coordinating Unit of the Office of the Governor.

The classroom building itself is complete with electrical connection, blackboard, bulletin board, teacher’s table and chairs, and plastic armchairs.

This multi-awarded initiative has dubbed Bohol a pacesetter for other local government units in bringing quality education, delivering better service, and providing opportunities for improved quality of life down to the grassroots.

The project had built 21 classrooms by December 2011 since its launching in November 2010 in Brgy. Matin-ao, Carmen.

The blessing and inauguration of the two-classroom building in San Vicente, Trinidad is one of a series of inaugurations for 27 more classrooms to be built this year, 15 of which had already been completed.

New classroom buildings have also been turned over to San Jose, Sierra Bullones; Rizal, Pilar; Buenavista, Carmen; and Progreso and La Hacienda, in Alicia; Mabuhay Cabiguhan, Trinidad, and Cambuyo, Garcia Hernandez.
