Taguig opens seven new school buildings


Ready for the start of school year

 

Taguig public school students will welcome the start of the new school year with seven newly constructed school buildings.

 

Mayor Lani Cayetano said that this development will boost the city government’s goal to achieve single class shifts in all of Taguig’s 36 public schools.

 

Dr. George Tizon, Department of Education Taguig and Pateros (DepEd TAPAT) administrator, stressed that starting Monday, nine out of 36 public schools will hold their classes in a single shift.

 

“If not for the implementation of K-12, there would be more single shift classes this year.”

 

On Monday, students and teachers can start using  the newly-constructed  school buildings  in Taguig Science High School; Diosdado Macapagal High School; Dr. Artemio Natividad Elementary School; C.P. Sta. Teresa Elementary School; Kapt. Eddie Reyes Memorial Elementary School; Bagong Tanyag Elementary School; and Ricardo P. Cruz Sr. Elementary School.

 

The new school buildings were funded by the Taguig City government except for the Ricardo P. Cruz Sr. Elementary School which is a project of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

 

Four other city-funded infrastructures are still in the construction phase.

 

Under Mayor Lani’s administration, the students of public schools have received superb treatment.

 

Their classrooms are air-conditioned; students from pre-school to high school are provided with complete sets of uniforms; bag; shoes; school supplies; grooming kits; free prescription eyeglasses; and a solid dental health program.

 

Taguig  is ranked number one in the National Capital Region’s  National Achievement Test (NAT), far from its old self as  a cellar dweller and number 13 before Mayor Lani assumed office in 2010.

 

Mayor Lani expects a smooth opening of classes on Monday as she has directed all the departments of the city government to ensure a safe and orderly opening of classes.

 

Special instructions were issued to the Police and the Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) to secure all the schools; the Traffic Management Office (TMO) to ensure a continuous flow of traffic, and the Solid Waste Management Office (SWMO) to maintain cleanliness.###

 

FILIPINO VERSION:

 

Handa na sa pagsisimula ng school year

Taguig nadagdagan ng pitong bagong school building

 

Pitong bagong school building ang pakikinabangan ng mga pampublikong estudyante ng Taguig sabay sa pagsisimula ng klase ngayong taon.

 

Binigyang diin ni Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano na ang development na ito ay magpapalakas sa hangarin ng lungsod na gawing “single shift” ang mga klase sa lahat ng 36 na pampublikong paaralan sa Taguig.

 

Sinabi naman ni Dr. George Tizon, Department of Education Taguig and Pateros (DepEd TAPAT) administrator, na umpisa sa Lunes, siyam na public school ang magpapatupad ng single shift classes.

 

“Kung hindi ipinatupad ang K-12 ay mas marami pang paaralan sa Taguig ang magkakaroon ng single shift classes sa taong ito.”

 

Kabilang sa mga bagong tayong school building na magagamit na simula bukas ay ang Taguig Science High School; Diosdado Macapagal High School; Dr. Artemio Natividad Elementary School; C.P. Sta. Teresa Elementary School; Kapt. Eddie Reyes Memorial Elementary School; Bagong Tanyag Elementary School; at ang Ricardo P. Cruz Sr. Elementary School.

 

Ang lahat ng bagong tayong school building ay pinondohan ng Taguig City government maliban sa Ricardo P. Cruz Sr. Elementary School na proyekto ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

 

Samantala, apat pang city-funded infrastructures ang kasalukuyang ginagawa.

 

Sa ilalim ng administrasyon ni Mayor Lani ay bumuhos ang mga tulong at benepisyo sa mga mag-aaral ng pampublikong paaralan sa Taguig. Ang mga silid-aralan ay  ginawa nang air-conditioned; libreng kumpletong set ng uniporme para sa mga  estudyante ng  pre-school hanggang high school; libreng bag; libreng sapatos; libreng school supplies; libreng grooming kits; libreng prescription eyeglasses (salamin sa mata); at mayroong matibay na dental health program.

 

Numero uno ngayon ang Taguig sa  National Achievement Test (NAT) sa National Capital Region (NCR) na malayung-malayo noong bago umupo bilang alkalde si Mayor Lani noong 2010 kung saan nasa dulo ito at pang 13 sa mga Local Government Unit (LGU).

 

Umaasa si Mayor Lani  na magiging maayos ang pagsisimula ng klase lalo’t kanyang inatasan ang lahat ng departamento ng pamahalaang lungsod na tumulong. Nagpalabas din ng  Special instructions para sa Police at Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) para tiyaking ligtas sa lahat ng paaralan; ang Traffic Management Office (TMO) upang matiyak na magiging maayos ang daloy ng traffic, at ang  Solid Waste Management Office (SWMO) para mapanatiling malinis ang lungsod lalo na ang paligid ng mga paaralan. ###
