Last year, a fire burned down some of the classrooms of the school. This prompted partners in the public and private sectors to initiate the construction of a new school facility, which is envisioned to be a two-storey building that can accommodate four class sections or a total of 160 students at the elementary level.

“On behalf of all of us at Langgam Elementary School, we would like to extend our appreciation to our partners from the Aboitiz Group, as well as the office of Congresswoman Ann Matibag, for turning our vision into reality,” said Langgam Elementary School President Shella Perez. “It is through our joint commitment to enhancing education that we are able to provide this new home to our students where they can have the best environment for learning.”

“Natagapuan ko ang isang organisasyon na tulad ko ay naglalahad na makatulong sa kapwa. Maraming salamat Aboitiz Foundation and AboitizPower; sa mga namumuno at sa inyong mga personnel na buong puso at walang sawang nakikipagugnayan sa aking tanggapan upang maisakatuparan ang pinapangarap ko na proyektong ito. (I found an organization that, like me, is bent on helping others. Thank you very much Aboitiz Foundation and AboitizPower; to its leaders and your staff who wholeheartedly and tirelessly coordinated with my office to make this project I’ve been dreaming of a reality),” Matibag added.

Aboitiz Foundation president and COO Maribeth Marasigan also underscored the value of collaboration between businesses and communities in pushing for a conducive learning environment for the youth.

“In Aboitiz, we believe that collaboration between businesses and communities is critical to the growth of both. Our journey to this moment has been a testament to the power of working together, hand in hand, towards a common goal – to provide our students with an environment that fosters learning, growth, and excellence,” she said.

Meanwhile, AboitizPower External Relations first vice president Jason Magnaye said that Langgam Elementary School is more than just a physical structure, as it also symbolizes the collective responsibility that was shouldered by those involved in the project.

“To us, this structure means more than just a construction of halls, walls, and rooms. To us, this building marks our efforts in trying to genuinely make a difference in the lives of the students in San Pedro, Laguna. Hopefully, we are able to help mold them into future leaders who will help pave the way for an even better future,” he said.
