When senior high school students needed a place to stay at the last minute, the Mountain Province State Polytechnic College (MPSPC) readily opened its doors to be home for some 290 Mountain Province General Comprehensive High School (MPGCHS) senior high school students pending the completion of the construction of their three-storey six-classroom building.
MPSPC President Dr. Rexton F. Chakas announced that the college allowed the use of ample rooms for the first batch of senior high school Grade 11 students until the end of July only to give way to the MPSPC students who will be entering on August.
“This is an expression of support on the full implementation of the K-12 basic education program. I believe this will bring progress and development in our communities,” President Chakas said.
MPGCHS said that the construction of the P10, 273,257.82 senior high school building that started January 27, 2016 with contract completion date of 150 calendar days is now projected by the contractor to be finished by July 20, 2016.
Meanwhile, other college officials also conveyed their support because they are certain that this program is purposely laden to provide sufficient time for mastery of concepts and skills, develop lifelong learners, and prepare graduates for college education, middle-level skills development, employment, and entrepreneurs that gives sound foundation for long-term economic development as clearly stated in the goals of the program.
Similarly, MPSPC Tadian opened its doors to TSAT senior high school students when it acted favorably on the request of TSAT Principal Mr. Dionesio Wacdisen for the same purpose at Tadian Campus. /Wynner Sayaan
