CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, -- Cagayan de Oro City exec called on the administration of Cagayan de Oro City National High School to “find ways” to fund construction of their perimeter fence and walls to ensure the safety of their students.
Mayor Oscar Moreno issued this appeal during the launching of the annual Brigada Eskwela cleanup campaign of the Department of Education (DepEd) which carried the theme “Matatag Na Bayan Para Sa Maunlad Na Paaralan (A Strong Nation for a Progressive School).”
Moreno said while he ordered the construction of perimeter fences in schools at barangays (villages) Balulang and Agusan, he did so out of a commitment he made with the communities there.
The mayor admitted that the city government's funds were focused on funding construction of more classrooms in Cagayan de Oro's hinterland or mountain barangays. (SC/CIO)
