Tuloy infra sa gitna ng pandemya: Along Malapitan inaugurates new school building in Caloocan

Caloocan Rep. Along Malapitan continues to implement infrastructure projects in his district even as government resources remain tight due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Malapitan on March 1 inaugurated a 12 classroom, four storey building at Bagong Barrio National High School.

In his speech, the lawmaker acknowledged that students can’t use the classrooms yet because face-to-face classes are still prohibited due to the threat of COVID-19.

However, he said the building’s construction was in preparation for the resumption of face-to-face classes. “Tinitiyak natin na sa kanilang pagbabalik ay magkaroon sila ng komportableng silid-aralan na magagamit nila sa kanilang pag-aaral,” he said.

Malapitan’s office said he has built over 1,000 classrooms since he first became a lawmaker in 2016.
