Catholic school rebuilt
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
The only Catholic high school in Tayasan, Negros Oriental, is ready to welcome old students and new enrollees when classes open on June 4, three months after its building was destroyed by the 6.9-magnitude earthquake on February 6.
Outgoing Archbishop John Du of the Diocese of Dumaguete led the blessing of four brand new one-level classrooms of the St. Anthony Academy, to replace the two-storey facility that collapsed at the height of the quake.
The classrooms were built with funds from donors, Fr. Salvador Mariño, parish priest of Tayasan, said. Two more classrooms and an administration building will also be constructed, he added.
