Some students in Yolanda-hit areas in Cadiz and Sagay cities in Negros Occidental were still attending classes in makeshift classrooms, using tarpaulins as temporary roofing, yesterday, while P73 million in repairs and construction work are underway.
Cadiz Mayor Patrick Escalante said the Department of Education has allocated P25 million in Yolanda quick-response funds for the repair of classrooms in his city.
The P25 million is for the repair of 104 classrooms that were damaged by the typhoon, while the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. has allocated P17 million for the construction of 12 new classrooms, Roel Bermejo, Cadiz Schools Division superintendent, said.
