CEBU, Philippines — Students from barangays Babag and Maribago in Lapu-Lapu City would no longer have to spend more for fare with the launching of two public high schools Monday.

These are Babag Senior Night High School and Buyong High School. Each school has four classrooms.

The launching and the unveiling of marker in Buyong, Barangay Maribago were led by Mayor Paz Radaza.

The mayor said the opening of additional high schools will provide convenience and more opportunities for locals.

“Ang pagbukas sa high school sa maong dapit maghatag ug kasayon alang sa atong mga kabataan ug makatabang usab sa mga ginikanan kay makuhaan na ang galastohon, ilabi na sa pletehan,” said Radaza in her speech during the launching.

She said the new Babag Senior High School, for instance, will add up to the existing 10 senior high schools in the city.

“I believe this offering will provide more opportunities and bigger chance for our working students to finish their senior high school. Dako na unya kini nga tabang sa atong mga kabataan nga buot mohuman sa pag-eskwela, apan maglisod tungod pipila kanila adunay trabaho o laing bulohaton,” she said.

Today, another public high school in Tungasan, Olango Island will also be launched.

It has six classrooms for high school and three more for Alternative Learning System program.

Radaza said providing children access to quality education is part of her advocacy.

“Since the beginning it has been one of my top priorities, and I will continue to do so, as I embark a new journey as congresswoman in the coming months,” Radaza said.

“Atong ipadayon ang maayo nga edukasyon nga atong gihatag sa atong mga kabataan aron sa ingon maayo nga oportunidad ang ilang madawat sa oras na sa ilang pag gradwar sa atong senior high school,” she added.

All three schools will start to operate this June. — KBQ (FREEMAN)
