The soon to rise, two-storey school building will have four classrooms with a total of 200 student arm chairs, 4 teacher’s desks, blackboards, wall fans and 4 washrooms with water closets. It is SM Foundation’s second school building project in the said city.
“Napakasuwerte natin dahil merong private sector na tumutulong sa kapakanan ng mga bata at pinaghahandaan ang kanilang magandang kinabukasan,” shared San Jose Del Monte’s City Mayor Arturo Robes. “Katulad ng SM, aside from their investment in our city, part of their services is donating classrooms.”
The new school building will be dedicated for the Special Science Elementary School project of the Department of Education, which provides an in-depth science and math curriculum to encourage and equip children in these field of studies in the future.
