TARANGNAN, Samar – Samar First District Engineering Office (SFDEO) completes the construction of a two storey - six classroom school building in Oeste National High School.

Brgy. Oeste is an island barangay of the municipality of Tarangnan, Samar which is only accessible by a one hour motorboat ride from Calbayog City.

The project is implemented by SFDEO and costs some Eight million pesos from the 2015 Basic Educational Facilities Fund (BEFF). It is under contract with B. Vicencio Construction.

Assistant District Engineer Loreto Cedro, head of the District’s Inspectorate Team, leads the recently held inspection of the project. School Principal Francisco Peñaranda accompanies the team during the inspection.

Peñaranda said that this new building will directly benefit around 530 students who are currently enrolled in the school. He expects an influx of enrollees for the next school year from adjacent barangays.
