THE Dagupan City government is looking into the construction of high-rise school buildings to address the growing school population and land requirements in all public elementary and secondary schools in the city.
Mayor Benjamin S. Lim, addressing the mass induction of the new set of officers of the Bolosan Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association (from Kindergarten to Grade VI) in Barangay Bolosan last Thursday, said “I am fully aware of the fast-increasing number of students and the schools demands for land use, which require school building expansion. We will no longer allow the construction of a single story building,” Lim said.
The mayor cited the case of West Central Elementary School grounds where two to three story structures will replace the old ones.
The mayor also underscored the importance of education and the harmonious relationships among parents, teachers and students.
“Mas magandaang samahan kung makikipag-tulungan ang bawat-isa, from parents to teachers and teachers to parents, so that we will produce better students and productive citizens,” he said.-(CIO)
