These three projects entirely for education are brought by Mayor WES Gatchalian’s Proyektong Kakaiba. This is the first time that the city has three new construction projects on the same day and place. Hence, Mayor WES is delighted about the successive trailblazing events, “Kahit kulang ang lupain dito sa Valenzuela, hindi iyon rason upang huminto ang ating mga proyekto. Kailangang tuloy-tuloy lang ang pag-iisip natin ng serbisyong kakaiba, proyektong kakaiba na first time mararanasan dito sa Valenzuela.” [Even if we do not have enough lot spaces here in Valenzuela, that is not a reason to stop our plans. We should continue coming up with exemplary and pioneering projects.]

Bagbaguin is one of the barangays in the second district that is increasing in population, hence a need for an additional school would be a great support to the community. Mayor WES Gatchalian also conveyed that when he was in Congress, it was already Bagbaguin’s aspiration to have a school that is nearby to their barangay, “Ngayon, ang kanilang matagal nang pangarap ay mangyayari na. Inihahandog natin sa taumbayan dito sa Bagbaguin ang hindi lamang po Elementary School, hindi lang National High School, kundi isa ring magandang sports center.” [Now, their longtime wish will happen. We present to Barangay Bagbaguin not only an Elementary school and National High School, but also a nice sports center.]
