Marlow Navigation has recently donated funds to construct new classrooms at three different schools in the administrative region of Central Visayas, including: Baras Diutay Elementary School, Kabankalan, Negros Oriental; Gutlang Elementary School, Argao, Cebu; and Tapon Elementary School, Ubay, Bohol.
All classrooms, complete furnishing, were delivered by contractors NuEast Architects and successfully handed over to the three schools on schedule.
The handover ceremonies at each school took place at the end of November, with Joint Managing Director from group head office in Cyprus, Jan Meyering joining Marlow Philippines’ two CEOs, Tony Galvez and Captain Leo Tenorio for the occasion.
Also present were the school principals, government officials from the Department of Education, teachers, parents and many students. Speeches were conducted by each school, filled with gratitude and appreciation for Marlow.
During the ceremonies, Marlow also introduced its nearby regional branch office in Cebu, which is now helping to maintain the relationship with the schools and coordinate with whatever needed hereafter.
“We wholeheartedly thank our group head office in Cyprus, management and company at large for yet again reaching out with such generosity and kindness, together helping to contribute to our schools and children’s education,” said Galvez.
“Central Visayas is an important region for Marlow, with our office here in Cebu being a key point of contact for recruiting and supporting many Filipino seafarers. We are glad to support the local communities here,” he added.
