TWO school buildings in Batangas City were repaired by SM Foundation in fulfillment of its commitment to undertake the maintenance and repair of school buildings it has donated.
The school buildings that underwent repair are Navera National High School (NHS) in Barangay Concepcion, turned over by SM Foundation in July 2010, and the Bulacnin National High School in Bgy. Bulacnin, Lipa City, turned over in January 2010.
Both buildings are one-storey, two-classroom edifices that were donated by SM Prime Holdings through the SM Foundation.
Repair works in the Navera NHS building included repainting of the exterior and interior; repair of the downspout and comfort room; replacement of doors, electrical outlets, and broken window jalousies; and repainting of the side wall and roof signage.
For the Bulacnin NHS, the exterior and interior of the building were repainted, repair of the downspout, the ceiling and the replacement of broken jalousies. The side wall was repainted and the blackboards were repaired.
SM Foundation normally revisits the donated schools every five years to check on needed repairs.
Juris Soliman, SMIC Consultant, headed the repair team that undertook the repairs.
However, when needed repair works are brought to SMFI’s attention, the Foundation immediately sends a team to check on them even before the five-year repair schedule.
