Brgy Chairman Jay Roa Pascual, cannot thanked enough the mayor for choosing his barangay as the first recipient of a three classroom building in August 2014 when Mayor Moreno started building classrooms and initiating a reform in education.
Pascual said just as their children were benefitting the new classrooms, another 3classroom building was turned-over today to cater to the increasing number of children going back to school.
Danny Labadan, school head of Man-ai National High School, quipped the additional classrooms is “the realization of our small dream seeing no more children walking 20 kilometers a day just to attend classes in Sitio Man-ai, Magayad and Dunggoan all in Brgy Tignapoloan this city.
He said from the last year’s 90 students “we are now having at least 145 students and we are expecting it to reach more than 200 next year.”
The turn-over ceremony was witnessed by DepEd officials, Brgy Council, members of the Local School Board and Hon. Rainier Joaquin "Kikang" Uy representing First District Rep. Rolando "Klarex" Uy.
