Despite the transition to modular and online learning due to the pandemic, SBFI continues to build public school classrooms for use in 2021.
“As part of our mission to enrich the education of every Filipino, we at Security Bank Foundation are excited to see this school building at Solano East Central School rise. We hope that it will be properly utilized by the learners of the school and the generations to come,” said Rafael F. Simpao, Jr., Security Bank Foundation chairman.
The school building, designed to accommodate 500 students, is expected to be completed in 2021.
According to SBFI, public schools must be prepared with more facilities if partial face-to-face classes will be implemented next year due to social-distancing measures in place.
Under social distancing measures, the seating capacity of the 10 classrooms is reduced from 500 to 250.
The school building is among the 106 classrooms currently being constructed by SBFI in 11 cities/municipalities across the country. These classroom construction projects aim to address the classroom gap in Philippine public schools.
Solano East Central School is a primary school in the Province of Nueva Vizcaya.
