In an article posted by Sunstar.com, classes in Marawi City will push through on September 12, 2017, amid the ongoing clashes between the military and terrorists in the city.
According to Joint Task Force (JTF) Commander Brigadier General Rolando Joselito Bautista last September 5, 2017 (Monday), a number of grade school institutions in the city have already resumed classes.
Schools in the Marawi City that have started their classes include Sultan Conding Elementary School, Sikap Elementary School, Cabingan Primary School, Banga Elementary School, Datu Tambak Elementary School, Rorogagus Elementary School, Bito Elementary School, Pendolonan Elementary School, Abdulazis Elementary School, Camp Bagong Amai Pakpak Central Elementary School, Sugod Elementary School, and Mipaga Elementary School.
Bautista assured that the battle is nearing to an end and, while waiting, strict security has been going on to protect the city against terrorism.
On the other hand, last August 22, 2017, 600 students were transported from Iligan City to attend their classes at the Mindanao State University (MSU)-Main Campus in Marawi City as classes were already resumed.
The number of students who went back to continue their studies at the university also increased to 9,000 as of September 1 coinciding the celebration of MSU’s 56 Founding Anniversary. The event was graced by Commander of the Western Mindanao Command Lieutenant General Carlito G. Galvez Jr..
After classes will resume in the city, government offices will then start to prepare for the possible resumption of operations.
