Elementary students in Batangas received two new classrooms and a library this school year
The classrooms are complete with materials such as printers, projectors, new blackboards, armchairs, among others. The library, on the other hand, has facilities such as projectors, bookshelves, and whiteboards.
During the recent turn-over ceremony, school principal Nora Guttierrez advised the students to take care of their new classrooms and library. “Ang aming sakripisyo ay para sa inyong kinabukasan. Maaaring mga bata pa kayo para maintindihan ito pero gusto naming ipaalam na ito ay para sa inyo. Wala kaming hangad kundi ang kayo ay magkaroon ng isang maayos na silid.” School teachers had seek World Vision’s assistance previously to help them replace the old classrooms their students were using.
With only a meager budget, the school couldn’t build new buildings to replace the old ones. “These newly constructed buildings took time to build. World Vision, seeing the need of the students, sought donors who can help them have a better learning environment. We are also happy that donors from Korea responded,” Douglas Chua, World Vision Program Manager in Batangas.
