Security Bank Foundation awes Alicia, Isabela with its school building donation

Security Bank Foundation left the whole Alicia, Isabela community in awe with the turnover of its two-storey, six-classroom school building donation to Alicia East Central School last January 8, 2020. Under its flagship “Build a School, Build a Nation: The Classrooms Project”, Security Bank Foundation donates much-needed classrooms in communities where Security Bank has a presence while complementing it with training programs for teachers and school heads to help improve quality of education.

“While Security Bank is not asking anything in return for these donations, we do, however, request and expect that the principal, the teachers, the parents and the students of our public school beneficiaries will help maintain the condition of these classrooms. As you can observe, we have designed and spared no expense to make sure that these classrooms are conducive to learning and, by God’s grace, should last for more than 25 years.  If you will examine the classrooms, you will see that we have provided good lighting fixtures, ceiling fans and the toilets even have bidets because we were made aware that public schools do not provide toilet papers. We are therefore asking the principal, the teachers, the parents and the students of our public school beneficiaries to please make sure that these classrooms are kept clean and well-maintained,” highlighted Rafael Simpao, Jr., Chairman of Security Bank Foundation.

“Natutuwa ako sa Security Bank dahil sa pagbibigay nila ng school building na napakaganda. Naging epitomiya sa akin ang building na ito at gusto kong ipagaya, parang prototype sa lahat ng school building na gagawin ng local government. Mas lalo pa nating dadagdagan at pagagandahin ang mga ganitong klaseng school building. Nag-isyu ako ng kautusan na lahat ng school building sa probinsya ay kailangan na maganda ang lighting, dapat may magandang banyo, kailangan may handwashing facility at may maintenance. Sa mga magagandang building na dinodonate sa probinsya, maglalaan din kami ng maintenance fund para sa pagpapanatili ng kagandahan ng school building,” said Hon. Rodolfo Albano III, Governor of Isabela Province.

“Nagpapasalamat po ang bayan ng Alicia at ito ang first school building na donated by Security Foundation here in Alicia, Isabela. We would like to assure na ang mga kaguruan at mamamayan ng Alicia ay pananatilihing maayos at malinis ang school building na inyong binigay,” assured Hon. Joel Amos Alejandro, Mayor of Alicia, Isabela.

“Maraming salamat Security Bank Foundation sa inyong regalo sa amin ngayong bagong taon. Ito ay biyaya sa aming mga Aliciano. Gaya ng nasambit ni Chairman Simpao, amin itong pangangalagaan upang mapakinabangan ng mas maraming kabataan sa aming bayan,” added Dr. Madelyn Macalling, Schools Division Superintendent of Department of Education Isabela Province Division.

“Masayang-masaya ang mga estudyante at kaguruan ng Alicia East Central School. Higit na pasasalamat ang nais naming ibigay sa lahat ng taong tumulong sa pagpapatayo ng eskwelahan na ito. Maraming salamat Security Bank Foundation sa pagpapaganda ng edukasyon sa Pilipinas sa pamamagitan ng magagandang classroom na ito na magiging tahanan ng mga estudyante sa kanilang pamamalagi sa paaralan. Nawa’y pagpalain kayo at mas madami pa kayong matulungan!,” expressed Ruby Garcia, Principal of Alicia East Central School.

Since 2011, Security Bank Foundation’s The Classrooms Project has already turned over 529 classrooms benefitting 99 schools in 54 cities and municipalities nationwide. Security Bank Foundation has also trained 1,387 teachers and 94 school principals in partnership with Ateneo De Manila University and De La Salle Philippines.
