Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) completed two new school buildings in Nueva Ecija.
These structures located in the towns of Jaen and San Leonardo aim to aid in strengthening the capacity of local communities to support basic education.
DPWH Nueva Ecija 2nd District Engineer Elpidio Trinidad said the new 2-storey, 8-classroom buildings that were built at Jaen West Elementary School and San Anton Elementary School will be used in case the government allows students to physically attend school.
“Despite the lack of face-to-face classes, our office continues to construct school buildings to support the return of students once the situation improves,” he added.
“And in case physical classes are allowed to be held, we are one with the Department of Education in ensuring that our students are provided with a safe and secure learning environment,” Trinidad furthered.
The P45.41 million elementary school buildings were constructed by DPWH in coordination with Department of Education earmarked from the Basic Education Facilities Fund. (CLJD-PIA 3)
