Mayor Celso Lobregat unveils yet another school building project today at the San Jose Gusu Elementary School, as the City Government continuously fulfils its commitment to assist and support the education sector.

The turnover of the P3.2 million 2-sotrey 4 classroom building at the San Jose Gusu Elementary School today is the 4th project to be unveiled in two weeks as the Lobregat administration hopes to help improve the student-classroom ratio in public schools in the city.

Yesterday, the city government unveiled and turned over the P10.7 million 2-storey 10 classroom building at the Don Pablo Lorenzo Memorial High School while two school buildings—a 2-storey 8 classroom each—all amounting to P16.59 million were inaugurated last Friday at the Talon-talon National High School.

Still in line with the city’s support to the education sector, Mayor Lobregat also spearheaded the turnover of 60 computer units to 12 public elementary and high schools in the city as a result of the city’s feat in the Gawad Pamana ng Lahi award.

Mayor Celso Lobregat has time and again vowed to continue helping the education sector in a bid to improve quality of education and ensure a better future for the youth.

Since 2007, the city’s investment in education has reached over P800 million and is expected to reach the P100 million mark by June 2013.

The projects for education include school buildings, covered courts, stages, drainage systems, riprapping projects as well as hiring of teachers, teachers’ allowances, computers and other education-related projects. — Sheila Covarrubias
