BURAUEN, Leyte- The long wait is over.
The Cadahunan Elementary School is one of the barrio schools of this town which is under the Burauen North District.
Before it was just a primary school with only two teachers and two classrooms with combination classes of Grades 1 and 2 and Grade 3 and 4.
The school became a complete elementary school when the Grades 5 and 6 classes were opened in the school year 2014-2015.
There was an additional teacher assigned for these grade levels. Because of the limited classrooms, the first classroom were occupied by the Grade 3 and 4 classes while the other classroom was shared by the Grade 1 and 2 classes and Grade 5 and 6 classes. They only put a division at the center.
Due to the mandatory opening of the Kindergarten class for the K to 12 program, the school head, teachers, and stakeholders find ways and means to build a makeshift to accommodate the Kindergarten class. Another teacher was deployed to handle the class.
Now, the long wait is over to have additional classroom because the school was given a 1-unit with 2 classroom building by the Department of Public Works and Highways Regional Office in partnership with the Leyte Division of the Department of Education.
The construction started on January 15, 2018 and was finished on June 19, 2018.
The newly-constructed building was turned over to the school on June 29, 2018 and now occupied by the Kindergarten and Grade I and II classes respectively.
It is a big help to the teachers and pupils and especially the children in Barangay Cadahunan, where the school is is located, to have a classroom that is conducive for learning.
