Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso provides update on redevelopment of his old elementary school
The construction of a new 10-storey building in his old elementary school is progressing nicely, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso said Tuesday.
Domagoso jumpstarted the redevelopment of the Rosauro Almario Elementary School last year, and the construction is 30 percent complete as of March 31, he said on Facebook.
He recalled that when he was a student, parents had to chip in to buy an electric fan and paint for their classroom.
But now he was able to do more to improve the school.
“Mapaglaro talaga ang tadhana. Ngayon naging instrumento pa ako para mapaganda ang aking sintang paaralan na humubog sa aking kalinangan at pagkatao. Mga guro, estudyante at magulang, para po sa inyo ito,” he said.
The new school would have a 10-storey building with 227 classrooms, 12 offices, a library, auditorium, gymnasium, two outdoor basketball courts, two roof decks as areas for outdoor sports and exercise, eight elevator units, seven nodes stairs, and a cafeteria.
