Firm gifts host school with new building


IT WAS INDEED a Merry Christmas for Maluko Central Elementary School after Hedcor turned over a brand new two-classroom building.

Maluko Central currently houses 634 pupils so the addition of the new facilities will help improve the learning-conducive environmen­t that the school aims to provide.

Calling it a ‘dream come true’, school principal Lotes Flores was close to tears upon receiving the school facility. “Thank you for making our dreams a reality. We humbly accept this gift with overflowin­g joy,” shared Flores. “Rest assured, this classroom will be put to utmost use. Surely, we will provide a better learning environmen­t for the pupils so that they can concentrat­e more on their studies and reach their highest potential.”

Councilor Reynaldo Bagayas Jr. who stood as representa­tive for Manolo Fortich Mayor Clive Quiño also expressed his gratitude for the P2.3 million-worth school building. “We express our heartfelt thanks to Hedcor. You are more than just stakeholde­rs; you are also our family and a part of the community as well.”

Education has been Hedcor’s primary driver in improving the well-being of its host communitie­s. In fact, 68 percent of Hedcor’s Corporate Social Responsibi­lity activities for this year are on education programs such as upgrading school facilities, student scholarshi­ps, and teacher training.

Dan Rey Faelnar, Hedcor’s assistant vice president, ended the turnover by expressing his desire for better partnershi­p. “I hope that this relationsh­ip becomes twoway because in order to drive change for a better world, we need your partnershi­p to advance business and communitie­s.”
