School heads flanked Dr. Torrecampo during the presentation The LGU and DepEd officials who worked hard for the three of the certificates of the approved schools to Mayor Guia G. Gomez schools to be realized

“Back-to-back achievements”

This is how out-going OIC Schools Division Superintendent, Dr. Joel T. Torrecampo, described this marvelous achievement of the City of San Juan, in partnership with the Local Government for the youth of this great city.

“The dream of the good mayor Mam Guia G. Gomez has now been realized with the approval of the three schools for San Juan City by the DepEd Regional Office through Regional Orders numbers 09, 10 and 11, series of 2018 which were released last October of this year”, Dr. Torrecampo said. “This is the fruit of the long and tedious processes that SDO San Juan, with the assistance of the officials of the city, went through in preparing all the necessary documents as well as physical evaluations to make this a reality”.

The three approved schools are the San Juan City Science High School, San Juan City Academic Senior High School and the San Juan City Technical-Vocational and Livelihood (TVL) Senior High School.

The creation of these schools were also through the gallant efforts of the City Council who unanimously passed the City Ordinances Numbers 20, 21 and 22, Series of 2017 respectively. These schools will be permanently located in Barangay St. Joseph, San Juan City where the construction of the buildings intended for these are now close to completion.

“I could now proudly tell the people of San Juan and Mam Gomez that before I leave this great city for my new assignment, at least I did my job!”, Dr. Torrecampo remarked when asked about this achievement.

In closing, he said “this is what the mayor wanted me to do, but as it turns out, she helped me out and we did it together with the help of those who believe in the African proverb- ‘It takes a village to educate a child’. It is mission accomplished for me and I know that these schools will be the mayor’s legacy for the people of San Juan City”.
