Zambo mayor inspects infra projects in west coast schools
Zamboanga City (September 5) -- To make sure that school building projects in specified areas are being implemented on schedule and within specifications, Mayor Celso Lobregat personally motored to the west coast of the city, Monday, to inspect on going and soon to be implemented school building projects, as he emphasized anew his open-handed support to the education sector.
Together with Councilor Rudy Lim, chair of the Council committee on education; City Engineer Luis Despalo and the Executive Assistant Amilpasa Bandaying, Lobregat visited the project sites in Southcom National High School, Sinunuc Elementary School, Maasin Learning Center, Cawit Elementary School including the Ayala National High School and Ayala Elementary School.
In making the rounds of the schools where the city is implementing projects, Lobregat wanted to make sure that the no problems are impeding the projects.
"Education is one of the ten priority projects of the city government", the mayor stressed. The inspection of schools was timed with his visit to barangay Ayala where he spearheaded the barangay fiscal administration forum, the 3rd of a series this year.
A two-storey six-classroom building is set to be implemented at the Southcom National High School in Upper Calarian but besetting the project is the space or site where the building will be set up. A similar project is on going at the Sinunuc Elementary School, likewise at the Maasin Learning Center and Ayala National High School and Ayala Elementary School.
The city government under the Lobregat administration has allocated millions of pesos to assist the public elementary and secondary schools in the city. This assistance come in the form of school buildings and other infrastructure projects, computers units, teacher allowances, hiring of teachers and textbooks and office supplies.
Lobregat said continuous assistance to the schools will pursue in a bid to help improve the quality of education. (PIA Z.C. / CIO) [top]
