Governor Roel Degamo said he immediately granted the requests for additional classrooms for the Saying Elementary School in Tayasan, Negros Orienta,l because he saw the immediate need for additional classrooms with the growing population of school children.
The school building with two classrooms is part of the BastaNegOr Education104 program of the provincial government.
He said it is good to have children inside the classroom, and not working in sugarcane fields or doing forced labor.
He has instructed the Provincial Engineer’s Office to start the project before the school year ends.
Degamo also allocated P1 million for the rehabilitation of the road connecting Barangay Kabang of Jimalalud to Barangay Saying in Tayasan town that has become dilapidated due to strong rains and lack of maintenance.
Degamo said better education promotes a better community and reduces the incidents of crimes and insurgency.*MA
