Mayor Beng Climaco Tuesday formally turned over to the Department of Education (DEPED) a brand new 3-storey 12 classroom building at the Mangusu Integrated School in barangay Mangusu in the east coast, as she vigorously pursues her priority thrust on Security, health and Education (SHE).
Costing P21.827M, the Mangusu Integrated School building is the 8th climate-resilient edifice to be turned over to the DEPED in a period of 9 months.
“This school building is dedicated for teachers and all of you, my dear students. I would like you to thoroughly use and enjoy this for the benefit of the students,” Mayor Climaco declared during the turnover ceremony attended by District II Congressman Mannix Dalipe, DEPED officials, Team Climaco members, parents, teachers and students of Mangusu Integrated School and barangay officials.
Climaco vowed that her administration is working very hard to ensure the provision of quality education in public schools in Zamboanga City.
The school building was undertaken by the GHR Construction under the supervision of the City Engineer’s Office. It has an area of 1,327.640 square meters.
Last February 14, the mayor also spearheaded the turnover of the Limaong National High School building, the 7th to be turned over to the DEPED and school children since June 2018. The six other similar buildings unveiled were located at the Cabaluay National High School (NHS), Cabaluay Elementary School, Manicahan NHS, Tulungatung NHS, Labuan NHS and Vitali NHS. All these 8 projects unveiled form part of the initial 21 school infrastructures designed to address climate change that were lined up for implementation. The City Government’s new line of infrastructure projects are now designed to address climate change, fully intending to be functional and to ensure the comfort of the people who will use them.
