Inauguration and Turning Over of Anini-y Central School Restored Gabaldon Building
17 Decemmber 2018 | Anini-y Central School, Antique
*Delivered by Ms. Tala Maralit, Chief of Staff, Office of Sen. Legarda

 

Foremost, I congratulate Anini-y Central School and the Department of Education for the successful restoration of this Gabaldon school building.

 

It is wonderful to see the implementation of programs for heritage preservation because it shows respect for our forefathers and our history as a people.

 

I have been advocating for the restoration of Gabaldon school buildings in the country not only as part of heritage conservation but also to use them for their original purpose as places of learning.

 

I also believe it is important that, as we teach the Filipino youth our nation’s culture and history, we also inculcate in them the respect for things that form part of our heritage.

 

This building will serve as a teacher of history to the children of Anini-y. Hopefully this will also serve as a reminder for us to pursue efforts to preserve and promote our culture and heritage.

 

As your Inday Loren, I will continue to initiate programs not only for the preservation of our culture but also for the development of our beloved province of Antique.

 

Thank you and good morning.
