Gov. E. Jaro Elementary School (GEJES) in Babatngon, Leyte has new school building that will serve as additional venue for the journey of students and teachers towards quality education.
GEJES school head Valentin Trapela said the school project, in the amount of P4 million, involves the construction of 1-Storey building with two standard-size classrooms funded by the Department of Education (DepEd).
Trapela said that this school building project was completed just in time for the opening of classes for academic year 2019. He added that the 1-Storey, 2-Classroom school building can accommodate more or less 80 students, considering the 1:40 classroom-student ratio.
This building will provide students and teachers a conducive learning facility, one that is new and a lot more comfortable. He said that the building will be used by two Grade 1 sections and added that it will answer the lack of classrooms they had experienced in the past years, benefiting the students as well as the teachers and the community.
