SOFRONIO ESPAÑOLA, Palawan — A classroom building project is presently under construction on the Palawan State University (PSU) campus in this town, which is being financed by the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).
The project was started in August and is expected to be completed before 2022. The money used in the construction of the project came from P110,000 PTA funds. Phase 2 of the project is the construction of its roof.
According to Sandra Manzul, the school director, this additional classroom is a “school development project” that will be used by students in case face-to-face classes are re-implemented under the new normal.
“This is in preparation for the possible comeback of face-to-face classes. We are very grateful to the Parent-Teacher Association for their unwavering and untiring support to the campus,” Manzul said, Monday, September 13.
For Samuel Ortega, president of the PTA, the classroom project is an indication for them to continue providing support to the school their children attend in the midst of the PSU Sofronio Española Campus’ flexible learning scheme and make enough classrooms when face-to-face classes are restored.
“Kami ay lubos na sumusuporta sa anumang gawain lalung-lalo na sa mga proyekto na ipinapatayo ng PSU Española, na ang layunin ay para mapaganda at maibigay ang sapat na pasilidad na magagamit ng aming mga anak sa panahong maayos na ang sitwasyon. Nagpapasalamat din kami na sa ganitong pamamaraan ay nakakatulong kami sa unibersidad na ito,” Ortega said in a statement.
He also added that aside from construction projects, the PTA is allocating funds for campus activities and expenses, such as purchasing books, accreditation materials and equipment, and computers.
Currently, there are 650 students enrolled in the said school for the first semester.
