TAGBILARAN CITY — The Department of Education (DepEd) turned over a four-story school building to the Tagbilaran City Central Elementary School (TCCES) in Bohol province on Thursday.

The project worth P57.2 million was funded by the DepEd’s Basic Education Facilities Fund through the Department of Public Works and Highways.

One classroom has at least 35 students, unlike before when most class advisers go beyond the ideal ratio of 45 students in one classroom to accommodate the growing number of students.

Mayor Jane Yap expressed her gratitude to the national government for its continuous support, especially in its various projects and activities.

“We know that education has the power to transform lives. We have seen with our own eyes how the lives of many people have been transformed because of the knowledge, skills, and abilities they have acquired in school and this is what we want for the thousands of students of Tagbilaran City,” she said.

“We want them to have the opportunity to improve themselves, for them to have a fighting chance to reach for their dreams and for our students to envision themselves as successful members of society. Thus, we shall continue to provide our students with adequate classrooms and facilities, learning materials, and quality education,” she added.

Also present during the event were Rep. Edgar Chatto, provincial Deputy Chief of Staff Anne Mariquit Oppus, City Division Supt. Dr. Erwin Lagura, Assistant Provincial Schools Division Supt. Casiana Caberte, and barangay Poblacion 3 officials.
