THE CITY government of Manila assured the students of quality education providing them with new and modern schools.

This after Manila City Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan led the groundbreaking ceremony for the new six-storey school building at Isabelo delos Reyes Elementary School in Tondo, Manila.

It was learned that Isabelo delos Reyes Elementary School is the third school under the administration of Lacuna-Pangan to begin construction, which will be completed in more or less a year.

The school has a 9,273-square-meter floor area with 49 classrooms, an e-room, a laboratory, a library, an auditorium, and a conference room.

It will also have four elevator units, several restrooms, a faculty room, offices, a canteen, and a roof deck area.

The mayor said that the new school would provide its students with a place that is more useful and convenient for earning.

“Bahagi ito ng ating prayoridad sa paglilingkod bilang inyong punong lungsod at itinuturing na ina ng mga Batang Maynila. Nais nating maging kumportable ang ating mga mag-aaral gayundin ang mga kaguruan sa mga panahon na narito sila sa loob ng paaralan,” Lacuna-Pangan said.

“Siyempre, nais din natin itong magsilbing inspirasyon sa ating mga Batang Manilenyo upang sipagin pang lalo na pumasok sa paaralan, mag-aral upang palaguin ang kanilang kaalaman at kasanayan. Ito ay regalo natin para sa mga taga Isabelo delos Reyes Elementary School at sa lahat pang mga batang Tondo na gagawi at mag-aaral dito,” she added.

The local chief executive further assured that the city government, under her leadership, will never stop using all means to ensure that the standard of education being offered in Manila will be continuously raised to better provide its students with the capability to improve their status in life.

The mayor also hoped that through the project, the teaching personnel would be inspired more to fulfill their duties, not only as mentors but as second parents to the students they teach.

She cited teachers as the ones largely responsible for equipping the students with knowledge, instilling discipline in them, and molding their character to become better citizens.
