The city government unveiled and turned over two school buildings — comprising of two-storey, eight classrooms each — to the Talon-Talon National High School Friday afternoon, in time for the opening of classes on Monday.
Mayor Celso Lobregat and Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde led in the turnover of the newly-constructed school buildings worth P16.59 million.
The new schools are reflective of the city government’s continuing commitment to help improve the quality of education and ultimately ensure better future for the city’s young generation.
City Division of Schools Superintendent Pedro Melchor Natividad, Talon-Talon National High School Principal Arlindela Ramirez and Talon-Talon Barangay Chairman Munib Yusop received the city government’s donations on behalf of the students and the residents.
The inauguration of the two school buildings came five months after Lobregat turned over to the same school a P2.49-million covered court along with a P1.2-million Community Police Action Center.
The new school buildings are expected to improve the student-classroom ratio at the Talon-Talon National High School, which is considered as one of the fastest-growing public secondary schools in the city in terms of student population since its establishment in 2006.
