SAN Agustin Integrated School Annex in the City of San Fernando is the beneficiary of the new soon-to-be constructed building by the Aboitiz Power and its service partner San Fernando Electric Light and Power Company (Sfelapco).
This as Sfelapco and Aboitiz Power officers were in the city over the weekend for the groundbreaking ceremonies of the new building.
The event was attended by Aboitiz Power Corporation first vice president Juan Alejandro Aboitiz, Sfelapco senior manager Jesus Patricio Lazatin, Maribeth Marasigan of Aboitiz Foundation, Principal Mario Deraco and Vice-Mayor Jimmy Lazatin.
The project will feature four classrooms in a two-storey building that can cater to the needs of the 350 students of the said school. The project is made possible through the joint donation of Aboitiz Power, Aboitiz Foundation and Sfelapco.
Vice-Mayor Lazatin said that the project is a welcome development as it would answer the need for additional classrooms of the school. The school currently hosts double shifting of classes to accommodate the entire student population.
“This is a clear example of how the partnership with the private sector can accomplish concrete developments for the local community,” Lazatin said.
Meanwhile, Aboitiz Power Corporation first vice president Juan Alejandro Aboitiz said that the project is part of the corporate social responsibility program of Aboitiz Power and Sfelapco. He added education is part of the major priorities of Aboitiz with its corporate social responsibility program with Sfelapco.
