CEBU, Philippines — The Cebu Provincial Government recently turned over almost P12 million worth of school buildings to two different schools in Catmon town, northern Cebu.

This includes the P8.857 million worth of newly restored 10-classroom Gabaldon building inside Catmon Integrated School.

The second one is a three-classroom building worth P2.837 million in Cabungaan Elementary School in Barangay Cabungaan.

The construction of this new building is a joint undertaking of the Cebu Provincial Government, the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) and the local government unit of Catmon.

In a press release, Catmon Municipal Planning and Development Office (MPDO) Head Layla Colonia said they are preparing for the rehabilitation of two national school buildings in Barangay Tinabyonan and Agsuwaw.

The initial cost of the planned rehabilitation project is P2.8 million for each three-classroom school building. However, it may increase due to the rising cost of construction materials.

The distribution of the infrastructure projects is part of the current provincial administration’s six-key development agenda, which include education, infrastructure, and countryside development.

The provincial government also distributed at least P2.4 million cash incentives for 1,320 barangay workers in Sibonga and Carcar City.

Among those who received their performance bonus include day care workers, nutrition scholars, health workers, tanods and members of the Lupong Tagapamayapa.

Both the Gov. Hilario Davide III and Vice Gov. Agnes Magpale thanked the barangay volunteers for their role as the front liners in delivering programs of the Capitol, particularly in the upland villages. (FREEMAN)
