SORSOGON CITY, 3March2014 (BicolToday.com) – The rehabilitation of the century-old Sorsogon National High School (SNHS), a provincial landmark, was given another boost when Governor Raul Lee and multi-millionaire, foreign-based Loida Nicolas-Lewis met over breakfast at the Kapihan ni Tia Tinay early Monday morning.

In an interview with BicolToday.com, Governor Lee said that they discussed the problems in normalizing the schedule of classes before the start of the school term for 2014-2015.

“We explore the possibility how to render immediate solutions to the problems of the Sorsogon National High School and we are inviting all stakeholders to sit down and identify areas of responsibility so that there will be no duplications in our efforts.”

“The Lewis College offered to host between six hundred to eight hundred fourth year students inside the Lewis College campus for the time being using flexible tent like structures as temporary classroom”, said Lee. “This gesture is a step forward to enable normal classroom hours for the third and fourth year students who are in an emergency shift schedule.”

Adding that the provincial government is ready for immediate assistance, but there must be meeting of the minds.

“I am still waiting for their invitation or communication, we can sit down and discussed what are the immediate needs. What is their capacity, say, the pledges that they have now,” said the Governor.

He disclosed the province may opt to reduce participation in regional sports events, the savings can be used to buy lab equipment, teaching aides, books to enhance students competitiveness. There is a need to sacrifice.

He said the help by Loida Nicolas Lewis is an opportunity for us. “I am thankful that she will be assisting our efforts here.”

“The meeting was a good opportunity since a person of social standing like Loida Nicolas Lewis is willing to extend help to the school, and this should not be wasted. I need to remind and call the attention of Dr. Blanca Rempillo and her management team, the City division superintendent, the alumni, our Congress representatives, agencies of the national government to present plans, programs, activities that will have a concrete action.

“There is a need to hurry, we have a short time before the start of the June classes . Let us be united in a real sense, we must start working”, was Governor Lee’s challenge. [BicolToday.com]
