BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (February 26) -- The provincial government here recently opened the School Sports Complex in this town after the completion of its rehabilitation and development works.
The more than P10.8 million - center bleacher and the construction of 11.85 meter x 42.00 meter building was formally inaugurated last week, attended by local government and school officials in the province.
The project was funded by the provincial government through the Special Education Fund (SEF).
In her message, governor Luisa Cuaresma urged teachers to help the local government unit in encouraging parents to pay their Real Property Taxes(RPT).
"Since this is funded through the SEF, I am requesting you to help us in disseminating our advocacy on the early payment of our real property taxes. In this way, our SEF will increase which in turn will be used for more projects that will benefit Novo Vizcayanos," Cuaresma said.
In 2006, typhoons knocked down the sports complex' wooden building and bleachers, prompting the provincial government to allocate funds for its immediate rehabilitation.
The sports complex here serves as a venue to various provincial sports activities and celebrations of the province such as the annual "Panagyaman"(Thanksgiving) festival, provincial sports meet and many others. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
