MANILA -- Parents started helping in cleaning and rebuilding classrooms for students of San Lucas Elementary School in Barotac Viejo in Iloilo.
Most of the classrooms in the school were damaged by typhoon "Yolanda", and classes have not resumed yet.
According to the parents, they decided to help in rebuilding classrooms so that their children can go back to school sooner.
They also believe that it will take longer if they will wait for the government to rebuild the classrooms.
The Department of Education in Region VI believes the typhoon can affect the required 180 teaching-learning days in schools, especially in schools that sustained damages.
The National Achievement Test, scheduled on March, may also be postponed.
Graduating students may have to make up for the days that they missed before they can graduate. -- with reports from Bea Zaragosa, ABS-CBN News Iloilo
