San Juan public school reopens

The West Crame Elementary School in San Juan City finally opened its doors on Monday once again after years of unuse.

Mayor Francis Zamora led the opening of the P48.3 million public school funded by his father's Priority Development Assistance Fund, Rep. Ronaldo Zamora, the first public school in the most populated barangay in San Juan.

Since its completion in 2015, the four-story school building with 20 classrooms and a basketball court on the rooftop has been idle, depriving at least 600 learners of using the facility.

With the opening of the school, students from Barangay West Crame, who have to enroll at nearby schools in Quezon City, could now transfer and continue their education at the new school.

The school, which is located at around 50 meters away from the firing range of the Philippine National Police in Camp Crame, was unused for years due to safety concerns.

Stray bullets believed to have been coming from the firing range were reportedly found within the vicinity of the campus, posing danger to students as well as the residents in the area.

Zamora told reporters that he and his father visited PNP General Oscar Albayalde two weeks ago where the country’s top cop reiterated that the school was already safe to use.

The city mayor said that the then PNP chief and now Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa and Education Secretary Leonor Briones issued a certificate declaring that the school was safe.

Albayalde, according to Zamora, assured that the precautions earlier installed in 2017 will be added to ensure the safety of students.

In the meantime, the PNP chief also stopped the use of the firing range to pave the way for the extra retaining wall to be installed, Zamora added.
