4 storeys with rooftop: Stella Quimbo graces blessing of Parang HS new building
Marikina Rep. Stella Quimbo recently took time off from her busy schedule to grace the blessing of Parang High School’s new four-storey building.
Just like school buildings in the United States, Parang High School’s new building features a roof deck. In a Facebook post, Quimbo said the structure was built with students’ welfare in mind.
“Kapag nagbalik na sa normal ang lahat at puwede nang pumasok uli ang mga estudyante, hindi na sila magsisiksikan sa loob ng kanilang classrooms at magiging maginhawa ang proseso ng kanilang pagkatuto,” she said.
A professor at the University of the Philippines prior to joining politics, Quimbo has been pushing for the implementation of single-shift classes in Marikina.
“Sa praktikal na sistemang ito, maaga nang makakauwi sa kanilang bahay ang mga kabataang Marikenyo kung kaya mas may sapat na silang oras para mag-review at makapag-quality time kasama ang kanilang mga minamahal sa buhay,” she said.
