The City’s massive school building program intensifies further as it unveils on Friday a 2-storey 6 classroom building at the Culianan Learning Center in the east coast.

The Culianan Learning Center’s new edifice, worth P5.594 million is one of the 6 school buildings that will be unveiled and turned over on Friday in ceremonies that will be led by Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro and Mayor Celso Lobregat.

The school building has an area of 555.45 square meters and was undertaken by MC Gabriel Construction firm under the supervision of the City Engineer’s Office. It is the second school building donated by the City Government under the Lobregat administration.

Last June 16, 2009, Lobregat spearheaded the turnover of another 2-storey 6 classroom building worth P4.189 million to the Culianan Learning Center along with numerous other infrastructure projects in other areas of the barangay that totalled P11 million.

Like in all other projects, the newly-constructed Culianan Learning Center is based on the Basic Education Impact Study (BEIS) conducted by the Department of Education through the Division Office and the Local School Board.

Through the BEIS, the authorities can determine which school or schools need additional classrooms citing the student population and the number of existing classrooms.

Since improving the City’s financial capability, the Lobregat administration has embarked on a massive school building program and other education-related projects to help ensure a better future for the young.

Since 2007 to June 30, 2012, the City’s investment in education has reached P1.186 billion.

Aside from the Culianan Learning center, its counterpart, the Culianan National High School is also a recipient of the city’s generosity in the form of school buildings and other projects.

On July 19, 2011, the city turned over a 3-storey 9 classroom building worth P7.9 million at the Culianan National high School. A month earlier, another 2-storey 6 classroom building was also turned over with no less than the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo gracing the event. — Sheila Covarrubias
