Lamitan city needs an additional 60 new classrooms to accommodate the increase in the number of students for this school year.

Lamitan Mayor Rose Furigay said that the city will be needing 30 new classrooms for the primary level and another 30 for the secondary level.

Most of the classrooms in Lamitan, said to be constructed in the year 1962, are already dilapidated.

Furigay is requesting for assistance from international donors, particularly the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) through the office of ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman.

The needs of the students for this school year were discussed during the recent meeting of the Local School Board last Wednesday in Lamitan city.

Meanwhile, Furigay also revealed the construction of a two-storey school in barangay Callugusan which was donated by the Furigay clan.

The name of the school is the Damaso Furigay Memorial High School.  (Allen Abastillas)
