The Tinocdugan Elementary School in Leyte town, Leyte province will soon have a new school building consisting of one classroom.
Thanks to the donation made by the provincial government through Governor Leopoldo Dominico ‘Mic’ Petilla.
Earlier, a resolution signed by the school head and barangay officials was submitted to the Office of the Governor seeking support for the construction of additional school building for the Tinocdugan Elementary School, about 15 kms away from the town center.
Thankfully, Gov. Petilla responded positively that led to the construction of the school’s new classroom.
Needless to say, the donation will be a big help to the school which suffered devastation when super typhoon hit Leyte town on November 8,2013.
The construction of the new building worth P1.2 million started on May 20 of this year and is expected to be completed on September 20.
