Legacion urges teachers to support his school building projects

By Paulo DS. Papa


Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion has recently appealed to teachers and education officials in the city to support his re-election bid in 2022 so that he can build more schools.


Legacion said he aims to construct more school buildings in the city to address the lack of classrooms and the growing student population particularly at the Camarines Sur National High School (CSNHS), which has some 2,000 students.


During the groundbreaking ceremony of the new two-storey school building at the Julian Meliton Elementary School in Concepcion Pequeña, Legacion said the city government under his term has already constructed four new school buildings in Barangays Balatas, Sta. Cruz, San Isidro, and Concepcion Pequeña.


The four newly completed school buildings are part of the eight school buildings, which Legacion promised to the Department of Education’s (DepEd) City School Division (CSD)


He said he will be able to deliver on his promise if DepEd’s teachers and officials will support him always as city mayor.


Sueño Luzada Jr., DepEd-Naga’s CSD assistant superintendent, told Bicol Mail that the CSNHS is no longer suitable for learning due to students congestion.


He said the CSNHS student population has reached more than 2,000 including senior high school students.


Luzada added that the construction of new school buildings provides new job and business opportunities for city residents, thus, they contribute to the city’s economic development.


“There’s progress in a community if there is a school within its neighborhood, he said.
