BARMM completes P50-M school projects in Sulu

ZAMBOANGA CITY–The Ministry of Basic, Higher, and Technical Education in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (MBHTE-BARMM) has completed the construction of PHP50.4 million worth of classrooms in the province of Sulu.

Minister Mohagher Iqbal, of the BARMM’s education ministry, said Friday the project consisted of 26 classrooms constructed in seven schools in different municipalities of Sulu.

Constructed under the Basic Education Facility Fund (BEFF) 2018, Iqbal said the construction of the school buildings “exemplifies the commitment” of the BARMM in improving the education system in the autonomous region.

“The provision of quality school facilities to our students and making our schools spaces for learning and growth are highlighted in the ministry’s 12-point priority agenda,” Iqbal said.

Amid the health crisis affecting the delivery of services, Iqbal urged the BARMM education community to continue its support to the education ministry and the region’s leadership.

Alfhadar Pajiji, MBHTE-BARMM assistant secretary for special programs and projects, led the classroom projects’ turnover from Monday until Thursday.

He also led the groundbreaking ceremony for the PHP17.6 million two-storey 10-classroom school building for Higher Education of Hadji Butu School of Arts and Trade (HBSAT) in Barangay Asturias, Jolo, Sulu.

The classroom project is set to be the Supervised Institution Building of HBSAT.

Meanwhile, Iqbal said the regional and division screening board of the MBHTE has started the demonstration teaching and interview with some 1,800 licensed teachers applying for jobs in the education ministry. (PNA)
