San Isidro Elementary School officials warmly accepted the two-storey, 4-classroom building during a turn-over ceremony last September 02, Monday.
District Engineer Lino Francisco C. Gonzalez of Leyte 4th District Engineering Office, together with Ormoc City Mayor Richard I. Gomez and Ormoc City Schools Division Superintendent, Manuel P. Albaño commenced the ceremony.
The school building is a convergence project between Department of Education (DepEd) and the Department of Public Works & Highways under Basic Education Facilities Fund 2018 (BEFF).
The construction of the 4-classroom school building amounted to Php 11,779, 919.56. The new classroom building can accommodate an average of 200 students, thence minimizing classroom congestion. It was also uniquely designed to be a resilient building complete with water facilities, electricity, and fire alarm system, making it a secure evacuation area in times of natural calamities.
In his speech, DE Gonzalez emphasized that “it is important to take care of the school buildings because it will be used not just by the students today, but as well as for the succeeding generation.”
