The Department of Public Works and Highways has completed a new school building for a public school in Quezon City.
Public Works Secretary Mark A. Villar said the new four-story school building at D. Tuason Elementary School, constructed by DPWH Quezon City First District Engineering Office in the amount of P18.7 million, had eight classrooms equipped with comfort rooms, emergency exits, fire protection facilities, cistern, and water tanks.
“The project was undertaken to provide a more spacious and sturdy facility wherein the security and safety of our students and teachers will not be compromised,” Villar said.
With the additional classrooms, D. Tuason Elementary School’s 50-to-1 student-teacher ratio will become 40-to-1, giving students an environment more conducive to learning.
The project was implemented by the DPWH with the use of the Basic Education Facilities Fund of the Department of Education.
