PGMA inaugurates three-classroom building in Lubao, Pampanga

Lubao, Pampanga (29 October) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo inaugurated the newly renovated three-classroom school building of the Prado Siongco Elementary School (PSES) during her visit to the province this afternoon.

PSES is part of the President's ambitious education program aimed at bridging the discrepancy in the number of classrooms that can accommodate a fair number of students in an atmosphere conducive to learning.

The President, assisted by Lubao Mayor Dennis Pineda, Department of Education Region III Regional Director Mario Ramirez, and PSES principal Myrna Manalang, unveiled the marker that formally opened the school building to PSES student's use.

The renovation of the school building, which was completed only last Oct. 22, was made possible through a P500,000 allocation from the President's Social Fund.

Analisa Domamay, a grade 1 teacher who was interviewed by the President, was effusive in thanking the Chief Executive, saying teaching in the school was now much more fulfilling.

"It is now more relaxing to teach at PSES," Domamay said in Kapampanga, adding, "because the atmosphere in the school is now more conducive to learning."

Kyle Vincent Miguel, a grade 3 student, was equally profuse in expressing his and his classmates' thanks to the President for having the school building renovated.

Miguel, whose favorite subjects are English and Math, said that now, his dream to finish his studies and become a doctor are now well within reach.

In reply, the President offered this piece of advice to Miguel, "Study hard," eliciting applause from some 300 students, teachers, local government officials and residents of Bgy. Pardo Siongco.

From the school, the President and her party visited the ongoing PGMA Caravan that offered free medical, dental, therapeutic, and beauty services to residents. (PIA) [top]
