Mayor Celso Lobregat and six members of the City Council yesterday morning motored to the Tagasilay National High School in the east coast to turn over two infrastructure projects in celebration of the school’s 17th founding anniversary.

Costing P4.240 million, the projects consist of the renovated 2-storey 6 classroom building worth P1.207 million and the newly constructed multi-purpose covered court worth P3.032 million.

The two education-related infrastructures form part of the over P19 million worth of projects implemented in Tagasilay since 2007.

Grateful school officials, teachers, parents and students headed by Principal Emelda    Mondejar warmly greeted Mayor Lobregat and Councilors Nonong Guingona, Myra Paz Abubakar, Percival Ramos, Rudy Lim, Mike Alavar and Eddie Saavedra who arrived at the school campus shortly before 12 noon to spearhead the unveiling rites.
The mayor and party came from the nearby Tigbalabag where they also inaugurated and turned over another infrastructure project to the barangay council headed by
Rolando Ofendoreyes.

Mondejar expressed appreciation to Mayor Lobregat and the city government in general for the continuous assistance not only to Tagasilay National High School but to all public secondary and elementary schools in the city in a bid to ensure quality education to the youth.

She vowed to make proper use of the new facilities and promised to share the use of the multi-purpose covered court with the Tagasilay elementary school headed by Principal Macrina Marquez.

The school’s 17th founding anniversary, she stressed, becomes even more meaningful with the unveiling of the new projects which will greatly improve the school’s student-classroom ratio and provide comfort and convenience during the conduct of school programs and other activities.

The school has a population of 302 students and 9 teachers.
Aside from turning over the two projects, the mayor likewise inspected the high school and elementary campuses (which are just adjacent to each other) for the possibility of implementing other projects.

The mayor has vowed to continuously assist and support public schools to ensure a better future for the city’s young generation. These assistance and support come in the form school buildings, multi-purpose covered courts, slope protection, drainage system, road concreting projects and other education-related programs.
Since 2007, the city’s investment in education has reach over P700 million.
