CEBU, Philippines - Air Force Units from the United States of America and the Philippines turned over two classroom buildings in Buyong Elementary School in Barangay Marigondon, Lapu-Lapu City

With the efforts of the USAF and PAF, class rooms were installed and students will be able to use the new structure.

It was reported that this elementary school was one of the schools in Lapu-Lapu City that has experienced classroom shortage after it was hit by typhoon Yolanda last year damaging the structure of the institution.

After the groundbreaking ceremony last month, a dedication rites was made Friday morning, in the presence of Colonel John C. Womack of the USAF, Brigadier General Raymundo Elefante, Wing Commander of 560th Air Base Wing of PAF; Maribago Barangay Captain Joseph Pangatungan; and Teodolo Ybañez, Lapu-Lapu City Administrator.

The undertaking was also witnessed by school officials of Buyong Elementary School.

Also present in the ceremony were the PAF and USAF officers and students of  the said school.

Ybañez, in his speech, admitted that the city lacks hundreds of classrooms, but said the city is trying its best to compensate the scarcity of school needs by having more teachers.

Ybañez is thankful to the Air Force Units for "this is a great help to the students and they can use the facilities for the many years to come."  (FREEMAN)
