City asked to assist NOHS, too
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
A resolution requesting the City Mayor to look into the possibility of extending financial assistance through the Special Education Fund or general fund as contribution to the construction of six replacement classrooms at the Negros Occidental High School, was approved by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod Wednesday.
The resolution was authored by Councilor Homer Bais and co-authored by Councilors Caesar Distrito, Em Legaspi-Ang and El Cid Familiaran.
The recent demolition of classrooms of NOHS to give way to the construction by the Negros Occidental provincial government of a two-storey 24-classroom building has seriously placed students and teachers in jeopardy, as they are holding classes in sheds that are not conducive to learning, the resolution said.
