Before the summer vacation begin four-storytorey school building has been completed in an elementary school in Quezon City, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said.

The additional school building was constructed to accommodate more students in D. Tuazon Elementary School in Quezon City for the incoming school year.

According to the department, the new school building has eight classrooms equipped with comfortable rooms, emergency exits, fire protection facilities, cistern, and water tanks. A total of P18.7-million was spent to complete the project.

“This 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,” DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said.

With the additional classrooms, the usual 50:1 ratio of students is now lessened to 40:1, providing students a more conducive learning environment, the secretary added.

The project was implemented by the DPWH with the use of Basic Education Facilities Fund of the Department of Education.
