New school, health bldgs to be constructed in Naga

NAGA CITY--- Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion has announced that a new national high school and city health office buildings costing a total of P35 million will soon rise in Barangay Sta. Cruz here.

Legacion, during a meeting with some of his constituents in the Public Safety Office on Sunday, Jan. 12, said that the two new structures are the Sta. Cruz National High School and the City Health Office II buildings.

The new two-storey high school building with eight classrooms, will accommodate students from neighboring barangays of Bagumbayan Sur, Bagumbayan Norte, and Abella. This new building will solve the classroom shortage in the city and decongest overpopulated schools like the Camarines Sur National High School, which has now over 11,400 students, the city chief executive said.

The construction of the school’s first building will cost P18 million and will be located along the Abella-Queborac Road. This road will be connected to Barangay Sta. Cruz proper by opening of a new road.

Legacion said that officials of the Department of Education (DepEd) in a meeting last November 2019, has requested him to advance the groundbreaking rite for the new building to June 2020, instead of the original schedule in June 2021.

Aside from the new school building, the City Health Office II building costing P17 million will also rise in the same barangay. We have scheduled its groundbreaking on Friday, Jan. 24, the mayor said.
