4-story school building completed in Tarlac town
The construction of a four-story school building in Anao town in Tarlac province is now finished, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
In a social media post, Niel Farala, chief of the DPWH-Tarlac’s first district engineering office, said the newly constructed 16-classroom building at the Anao National High School augments the school’s existing facilities and is ready to accommodate returning students in case limited face-to-face classes are allowed to resume in the province.
“We fast-tracked the implementation of this project due to the school’s apparent need for additional facilities with proper ventilation,” he said.
“Good ventilation is important and is a cost-free way to reduce the spread of the coronavirus disease within school classrooms,” Farala said added.
The P10.27-million school building was implemented through funding from the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Basic Education Facilities Fund (BEFF), a convergence program between DPWH and the DepEd.
The DPWH has been constructing new school buildings as part of its contribution to the educational sector’s efforts in making public school facilities conducive to learning especially at this time of a pandemic.
