Science high school to rise in Siargao

10/19/2011 - GENERAL LUNA, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte, Philippines – After years of waiting, a science high school will finally rise in this “paradise island” of Surigao del Norte.

The dream of parents, teachers and local officials came true when Budget Secretary Florencio Abad Jr. along with his wife Rep. Dina Abad, lead the groundbreaking ceremony for the General Luna Science High School Saturday.

Abad will be accompanied by Surigao del Norte Rep. Francisco T. Matugas (1st District), Gov. Sol F. Matugas and General Luna Mayor Peter Ruaya.

The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has released an initial P6.5 million for the General Luna Science High School.

The department also lined up and approved the construction of the P53-million provincial hospital in Barangay Sta. Cruz in Placer town, Surigao del Norte.

It was gathered that the construction of the provincial hospital in Placer is very vital since it will cater the medical needs of thousands of village communities along the southern part of the province.
