An additional school building has been completed by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to accommodate more pupils of D. Tuazon Elementary School in Quezon City this incoming school year.
DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar said the new 4-storey school building constructed by DPWH Quezon City First District Engineering Office in the amount of P18.7-million has eight (8) classrooms equipped with comfort rooms, emergency exits, fire protection facilities, cistern, and water tanks.
“This project was undertaken to provide a more spacious and sturdy facility wherein the security and safety of our students and teachers will not be compromised” said Secretary Villar.
With the additional classrooms, the usual 50:1 ratio of students is now lessened to 40:1, providing students a more conducive learning environment.
The project was implemented by the DPWH with the use of Basic Education Facilities Fund (BEFF) of the Department of Education (DepEd).
