Flag-raising ceremony

MAASIM, Sarangani (February 2, 2011) – Villagers and pupils of Langaran Primary School display nationalism during the flag ceremony Wednesday, February 2, where Conal Holdings Corporation have turned-over a two-classrom school building to Department of Education as part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities. The building which is a 10 by 40 meter-concrete edifice occupying 144 square meters of land area is now home to 117 grade one pupils in the village. The school also benefits children from outlying communities of Sitio Bog, Datal Pupo, Datal Basak, Purok Matbal among others. Sitio Langaran, a Blaan community of 60 households located in barangay Kablacan, is a 22-kilometer uphill stretch from the town proper. Due to the inaccessibility of the village, the tribe and their children for years were deprived of education. (Cocoy Sexcion/ SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE)
