ACT to fund construction of Pag-asa school

A TWO-storey, six-classroom building on Pag-asa Island will be constructed with the help of ACT Teachers Party-List Rep. Antonio L. Tinio, who has set a portion of the second tranche of his 2012 Priority Development Assistance Fund for the project.

The local government, through Municipal Mayor Eugenio B. Bito-onon, Jr., proposed the project after learning of Tinio’s vow to send assistance to the newly-opened elementary school.

The school will stand on a one-hectare land provided by the local government.  Initial estimates by the municipal engineer set Phase 1 to be worth P4.3 million.

In his proposal, Bito-onon said that it is high time for Pag-asa children’s right to education to be addressed after 34 years.

“A school standing at Pag-asa Island is an earnest affirmation of Philippine sovereignty—the provision for education, a basic social service,” Tinio added.

“This school will guarantee that the hope of Pag-asa’s children for a better future is secured.”

Tinio invited the national government to also give support to similarly disadvantaged schools in other areas nationwide.
