School and barangay officials of San Jose Gusu have expressed all out gratitude to Mayor Celso Lobregat and the city government for the huge funding being poured in for school building and other education-related projects for the elementary school in the area.

This, as Mayor Lobregat yesterday morning turned over the newly constructed 2-storey 4 classroom building at the San Jose Gusu Elementary School worth P3.2 million.

But even as he unveiled and turned over the project, another 3-storey 12 classroom building is ongoing construction inside the school campus, which, the mayor said is a testimony of his administration’s commitment to education.

A covered court will also be constructed inside the campus within the year.

School Principal Florencia Seno and barangay chairperson Betty Lou Reyes were one in saying that the school building projects and the covered court and the other education-related projects implemented in the school will ultimately result to better quality of education and better future for the young children.
The principal said the students are very fortunate that the local government is actively supporting the needs of the school, as the Department of Education, due to limited funds, cannot provide at the moment.

“We are forever grateful to the city government under the leadership of Mayor Lobregat for all these infrastructures and other education-related projects implemented in our school”, Seno stressed.

Chairperson Reyes said the projects undertaken by the city government will go a long way in helping young children become productive citizens in the future.

The turnover ceremony was held after the school’s flag raising ceremony and was also graced by Councilors Rudy Lim, Lilia Nuno, Abdurahman Nuno, Nonong Guingona and Myra Paz Abubakar, City Schools OIC Superintendent Pedro Natividad, District Supervisor Eduardo Ibanez, PTA president Rene Anudin, other barangay officials, parents and students.
