The Japanese government has donated a PHP9.4-million school building in Barangay Sto. Niño here.

In a statement Thursday, Mayor Jose Paolo M. Evangelista said the facility was funded under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP) of the Embassy of Japan.

“Construction of the school began in May 2020 and was only turned to the local government Tuesday afternoon due to the pandemic,” Bautista said.

Japanese Consul-General Yoshihisa Ishikawa led the turnover of the newly-completed two-story building of the Sto. Niño Elementary School, the mayor added.

The City Planning and Development Office and the Office of the City Engineer managed the construction of the facility.

The facility has four classrooms for learners in Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6, equipped with vital components such as the stairwell, steel casement windows, security grills, sewer line, and water and power supply.

The structure is also prepared with a storm drainage and downspout, sanitary and plumbing fixtures, septic vault, catch basin, fire protection system, overhead tank and cistern, lighting fixtures, and a fire alarm system.

As funding counterpart, the city government mounted furniture and fixtures that include 180 armchairs, 4 sets of tables and chairs for teachers and blackboards for each classroom.

“The city government will also shoulder the taxes and other obligations of the project,” Bautista said. (PNA)
