DUMAGUETE CITY, Nov. 12 — The Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCCI) in Negros Oriental has identified Dauin municipality as recipient of two units of school building through the recommendation of Rep. Henry Pryde Teves of the 3rd district.

Two units of school building with two classrooms will be given each for Casili High School and Dauin Science High School. The construction of the two school units started this week and is expected to be completed within 25 working days.

According to Dauin Mayor Rodrigo Alanano, they were not informed of the amount of the project but they were only asked to give a minimal counterpart of 50 poles of bamboo as scaffoldings, 45 cubic meters of sand and 30 cubic meters of gravel.

He said the municipality will be allocating some amount for the electrical connections since it is not part of the school building program of the FCCCI.

Alanano said he is thankful that his town was chosen as recipient of the project because they needed additional classrooms in order to accommodate more students. He believed that learning would not be effective if the room is too congested.

During the visit of FCCCI, Alanano said he recommended three more schools that are also in need of additional classrooms. His request was brought to FCCCI office in Manila for evaluation and possible allocation.

The additional buildings will be at the Malungcay Daco High School, Tugawe Elementary School and Bulak Elementary School.

Alanano said these will be constructed after the school building in Casili and Dauin Science High School will be completed. (PNA) FFC/jfp/MA
