TACLOBAN CITY – Enhancing educational infrastructure, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Leyte 2ndDistrict Engineering Office (L2DEO), is currently constructing a P10.42 million one-story school building with four classrooms that awaits senior high school students and teachers to have better learning facilities at the Palale National High School (NHS) in MacArthur, Leyte.

The school building project involves the construction of a one-story school building measuring 7 meters by 9 meters for each of the classrooms, equipped with a comfort room, new blackboards, wall fans, lighting fixtures, and ceiling fans.

During the project inspection conducted by District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura, he mentioned that once the school building project is completed, it will alleviate the burgeoning number of enrollees, lessening the burden on the teachers in accommodating the almost 500 students from Grades 7 to 10 and senior high school learners currently enrolled at the said school.

Oppura takes the lead in the inspection, ensuring the quality and safety of the ongoing construction of the school building project. He assures the public that the construction of the school building will be implemented with the highest standards of quality and safety, enhancing the learning experience for students.

This project is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Department of Education (DepEd) to enhance the School Building Program (SBP), with funding sourced from the Basic Educational Financial Fund and is expected to be completed this July in time for the opening of classes.
