Remote public school receives 2-storey classroom building from DPWH

Top officials of the Department Education – Iligan City Division recently received from the Department of Public Work and Highways-Lanao del Norte 2nd District Engineering Office a newly completed 2-storey school building in Estenzo-Comendador Memorial School located at Purok 2, Brgy. Upper Tominobo.

The school building has four classrooms and could comfortably accommodate more than 50 pupils per classroom.

“This has long been a dream of our parents, teachers and students, to have classrooms that allow learning to be fun and exciting. We are very much thankful to Superintendent Roy Angelo Gazo of Iligan City Schools Division for his steadfast support to our school and to Congressman Frederick Siao for making education one of his top priorities,” expressed Principal Fe Quinga.

The school is located about 18-kilometers from the city proper and takes close to 30-minutes of travel time from Suarez national highway to the school’s premises.

“This is a well-built school building and we are confident that this will last for many years to come. We hope that from the future graduates of this beautiful school will rise leaders that will help propel Iligan City to new heights of peace and development,” said District Engineer Alykhan Ali.

The infrastructure project was implemented by Alfahad Builders and Enterprises. The school building has a budget allocation of P12.5-million as part of Congressman Siao’s Local Infrastructure Program (LIP). 

“I am happy to report that as your Congressman starting 2016 up to this year 2020, the budget allocation for Iligan City is steadily increasing every year. And we need this budget for us to replace old and dilapidated school buildings that are no longer safe for our students,” revealed Siao.

Also present during the formal turn-over ceremony were Brgy. Chairman Rolando Lapas, Schools Operation Division Chief Juliet Timbang, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Shambaeh Abantas-Usman, West-1 District Supervisor Amelita LaForteza, Engr. Alfredo Paradela and Engr. Lyndon Ver Indig. (VNL/DPWH-PIO)
