CALBAYOG CITY – The
Department of Public Works and Highways Samar First District
Engineering Office (SFDEO) completes a 3-storey, 6-classroom school
building in Matobato Elementary School.
The school building costs
P14 million and has provisions for a PWD-accessible ramp, fire exit,
and comfort rooms on all floors.
The school has seen a
continued increase in their enrolment data over the past few years.
The existing buildings are not enough to hold more students – with
limited space their ability to learn is greatly affected.
According to Ms. Cynthia
Tarrayo, the school principal, the building will accommodate
approximately 360 incoming Grade 2, 3 and 4 pupils. It will be
officially opened for use when classes start on June 3, 2019.
This project is
implemented by SFDEO under its convergence program with the
Department of Education.
