CALBAYOG CITY – More students in the first district of Samar can now have a better learning environment with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) turning-over three newly completed educational infrastructure facilities.

A three-storey, six-classroom school building is built each in Trinidad National High School, Tinambacan Central Elementary School, and San Joaquin National High School. These projects are also appropriated with roughly more than P14 million each, benefiting thousands of students this upcoming school year.

Samar First District Engineering Office (SFDEO) is fast tracking all school building projects to ensure a conducive space for learning and reduce congestion. This is highly the goal in the case of San Joaquin National High School where the numbers of learners reach to around a thousand with classrooms being occupied by about 60 students each.

All projects were funded under DepEd’s 2018 Basic Educational Facilties Fund or BEFF.
