NOHS gears up for school opening

THE Negros Occidental High School, the oldest public high school in Bacolod City is gearing up for the school opening on June 3.

Mario Amaca, NOHS principal, said the school has already reached its carrying capacity of 8,000 enrollees.

“Everybody wants to enroll at NOHS but we cannot accommodate all. And I would like to make it clear that we don’t choose grades,” Amaca clarified.

Amaca also revealed that the school still lacks about 3,000 chairs and that he has already requested it from the provincial government and have some old chairs repaired.

He said that three classrooms have already been completed and that five more are nearing completion.

Amaca also said that the school is ready to implement Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC) for Senior High School.

However, he said they have not yet received the official mandate from the Department of Education about the implementation of ROTC.

Amaca led Friday, May 24, the unveiling of the NOHS steel signage donated by Batch 85. (TDE)
