New Corella, Asuncion schools get brand new chairs

CITY OF TAGUM, Davao del Norte, Jan. 19 - - Three different schools in the Municipality of New Corella and Asuncion town received brand new school chairs this week as the local government of Tagum intensifies the delivery of brand new school furniture under the “Care for School Chairs Program”.

Students of Mesaoy Elementary School in Municipality of New Corella were happy over the 288 pieces of school furniture consisting of armchairs, desks and kiddie chairs they received on January 17, 2012 from Mayor Rey T. Uy and Municipal Mayor Nestor Alcoran.

Eugenio Bermoy, school principal of the said school, said the school furnitures will really help a lot in achieving quality education. He then shared that those old chairs will be repaired and will be painted with yellow come summer break, during the National Schools Maintenance Week more known as Brigada Eskwela.

On January 18, 2012 at the Municipality of Asuncion, Governor Rodolfo P. del Rosario joined Mayor Rey Uy in the delivery of 338 pieces of school furniture consisting again of armchairs, desks and kiddie chairs from the local government of Tagum. Asuncion Mayor Joseph Nilo Pareñas was also present during the delivery.

Both Cabaywa and Upper Cabaywa Elementary Schools in Asuncion benefited in the latest school furniture delivery, with its principal saying it was the most opportune time that these were given in their school.

“Mahapsay ga gyud ang paglingkod sa among mga estudyante nga nag-antos sa nagtuya-tuya nga bangko,” principal Grace A. Deconio expressed in an interview, describing the condition of the replaced armchairs as a “hindrance to continuous learning.”

These brand new school furniture were produced out from confiscated logs seized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Office’s Anti-Illegal Logging Task Force and were later given to Local Government Unit of Tagum which had the fabrication facility at the Tagum City Motorpool. Volunteers from different organizations in Davao Region helped in painting these chairs and with paints donated by private organizations and individuals.(CIO-Tagum/PIA XI)
