PGMA leads groundbreaking ceremonies for 2 elementary schools in Mandaluyong City

Manila (29 August) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo led the groundbreaking ceremonies for two new school buildings in Mandaluyong City -- one in Barangay Barangka and the other in Barangay Bato.

The P80-million Ilaya Barangka Elementary School (IBES) building will replace the 38-year-old, termite-infested, two-storey Eulogio Rodriguez school building.

The new, four-storey structure will retain the name of the illustrious political leader.

With the new building, IBES' 1,509 students will enjoy better amenities and overall school environment.

The other school to be constructed in Mandaluyong City is a three-storey, 12-classroom Science Building at the Doņa Pilar Gonzaga Elementary School (DPGES) in Barangay Hagdan Bato.

Mandaluyong City Rep. Neptali Gonzales II said the DPGES was selected by the Department of Education (DepEd) as one of the three leading elementary science schools in the National Capital Region last year.

Given its special curriculum and requirements, DPGES will need a new science building with special facility rooms for computers and laboratories.

Gonzales said the city government has released P20 million out of the project's total cost of P24 million.

During the occasion, 10 computer and printer sets, a multi-media projector and one photocopier were turned over to DPGES principal Whenma Hilario. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
