COTABATO CITY – The Schools Division of Maguindanao II has a new school building, and it’s worth some Php4.2 million.
This after the Ministry of Basic, Higher, and Technical Education in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM-MBHTE) headed by Minister Mohagher Iqbal turned over the building through its Education Facilities Section.
It’s a modern single-story and two-classroom flagship building for the Ambolodto Elementary School Annex in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao.
Comprising the BARMM are the provinces of Basilan, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi, and the cities of Cotabato, Lamitan, and Marawi, as well as the Special Geographic Area (SGA) made up of 63 barangays or villages in North Cotabato that opted to be under BARMM jurisdiction. North Cotabato itself is not part of the region.
As a new political entity (NPE), the BARMM was established through the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) to implement the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB).
“The turnover was held Monday, the first working day of 2022 for educators in the region,” Iqbal said.
Not only the school building, the MBHTE head said the school also received learning materials for the the educators for the improvement of teaching methods and education aids. Iqbal’s ministry sourced the Php4.2 million funding from the Bangsamoro government’s 2020 Contingent Fund.
Iqbal reiterated time and again the importance of education being placed among the BARMM leadership’s priorities, the leadership being headed by Chief Minister Al-Hajj Murad Ebrahim.
“No Bangsamoro child should be left behind”
“There are two types of education in this world – revealed knowledge and acquired knowledge. Seeking both should be strengthened for us to deal properly with the worldly affairs and affairs in the hereafter,” he said. “Education is the key to success in this world and in the hereafter.”
Rightfully, and as expected, officials of the Ambolodto Elementary School Annex and parents were one in thanking the BARMM government for the educational support given to them and the provision of facilities for the benefit and welfare of both students and teachers.
Under Iqbal, the MBHTE has been striving to fulfill its working motto of “No Bangsamoro child should be left behind.”
It’s a motto that brings inspiration to parents in the Bangsamoro region as it undertakes programs, projects, and services to achieve better and quality education for its population. — EKU (/)
