The opening of classes this week in Boracay has been successful.
This was the assessment of the Boracay National High School (BNHS) Principal II Jose Niro Nillasca a day after classes resumed in public elementary and high schools here.
No untoward incidents had happened, Nillasca said.
“We have not received or recorded any complaints against snatchers or pickpockets. We are happy for that,” He added.
Nillasca believed that one of the factors for the success of the school opening was police visibility in schools, malls and all streets.
Futhermore, Boracay Tourist Assistance Center (BTAC) has placed police assistance desks in schools and terminals for any complaints by passengers and students.
Meanwhile, the principal put across that they’re encountering the usual problems associated with the beginning of the school year like the lack of classrooms, supplies, books and chairs plus violations of the policy of nonpayment of any fees in public schools.
Nillasca also advised the parent and guardian (s) to enroll their children as early as possible for they will not be late in diverse class lessons.
