Compostela Valley Province— Bayanihan sa Paaralan 2019 School Build took its official starting day on its estimated 22-day duration in the 3 municipalities in the province, Compostela, New Bataan and Pantukan.

Again, following the Bayanihan concept, the provincial government through its different offices led the building of the classrooms along with the municipal and barangay LGUs, national agencies and other private partners. One of which is at Purok 3, Brgy. Panansalanan, Compostela were the Provincial Administrator’s Office under Provincial Administrator Virgilia Allones, Provincial Human Resource Management Development Office, Compostela Valley Scholarship Program, CVPH Laak partnered with LGU Mawab, LGU Compostela and the Department of Education to build the 1 unit-2 classroom building.
Department of Education-Comval represented by Mr. Ruben Reponte thanked the provincial government under Gov. Tyron Uy, the LGUs and the rest of the partners as well as the volunteers for supporting the program.
Panansalan, with its green, lush and mountainous surroundings is also a big challenge in the part of the students living in Purok 3 as most of them will have to walk more or less 8 kilometers to reach the nearest school.
“Mas nindot na ang sistema sa edukasyon sa karun kay makita man gyud nato ang tabang sa gobyerno.” said Madonio Jacinto, Purok-3 Chairman of Panansalan.
He added that the community has about 39 households with farming as their means of livelihood where residents raise chickens, goats, pigs and plants vegetables for consumption and to generate income for their daily needs.
“Nindot kay makatabang ang bag ong eskwelahan nga mahimo pinaagi sa Bayanihan Sa Paaralan 2019 Build. Dako ang matabang ani sa amua ilabi na ug Sabado ug Dominggo kay makatabang amung mga anak sa uma kay makauli man dayun kumpara sa una nga layo ang eskwelahan.
