The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in. Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) opened Tuesday PHP17 million worth of school buildings in five public schools in Maguindanao province.
In a statement, BARMM Education Minister Mohagher Mohammad Iqbal said the turnover of the building was timely for the second day of the face-to-face classes for the school year 2022-2023.
“The additional school facilities is a continuing program of the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) in the region,” he said.
Five schools in Maguindanao’s School Division 1 and 2 were recipients of the new school buildings that included single-story buildings with two classrooms, and single-story buildings with three and four classrooms.
