Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has led the turnover of a two-storey school building with four classrooms in an elementary school in Sulu province.
The school building was donated to Laud Lambayong Elementary School in Barangay Bus Bus, Jolo.
“Emphasize ko lang sa mga teachers ang importance ng Education, huwag natin pabayaan. Pag sinabI na ng bata na ayaw nila mag-aral, pilitin dapat natin,” Duterte-Carpio said as quoted by the provincial government of Sulu during the ceremony on February 27.
“Mag reach out tayo sa mga magulang, sabihan natin ang magulang na pilitin niyo yang mga anak niyo na mag-aral. Magtapos ng senior high school, magtapos ng Technical Vocational,” she added.
The presidential daughter vowed to donate additional school buildings to Jolo.
Jolo Mayor Kerkhar Tan thanked Duterte-Carpio for her assistance.
