Consolacion Campus to be ready by June 2016
The only school in Cagayan de Oro which guarantees ‘your child reads at 3’ breaks new ground for a new and expanded campus and school building today.
The one hectare lot in Manuel Vega Street, Robillo Subdivision will be initially occupied by a 3-storey building which will be developed in phases. The ground floor will house offices and 14 classrooms for Grades 1-10, while the second floor will have 20 classrooms to house the expected enrollment increase of multiple sections as the K-12 curriculum continues to be implemented. The third floor will be developed as demand dictates.
The new campus will accommodate the new and expanded sections of the grade school and high school while the pre-school and other elementary sections will remain in the original Little Me Campus in Kauswagan.
Expected to grace the ground breaking at the new site and project presentation later in the afternoon at the Centrio Mall Activity Center are the regional and city education officials and heads of school associations.
Among them: Dr. Elena M. Borcillo, CESO VI, Dept. of Education (DepEd) Cagayan de Oro Schools Division Superintendent; Dr. Jean S. Macasero, DepEd Private Schools Division Supervisor; Dr. Mary Ann Allera, Sr. High School Chief, Dr. Rogelio Evangelista, DepEd-X QUAD Chief and Mrs. Ma. Dulce T. Potenciano, head for the academe of the Cagayan de Oro Local School Board.
Also invited to join are Ma. Kristine M. Lasque, President of the Cagayan de Oro Association of Private Elementary Schools (CAPES); Suzette Caeline Maandig, President of the Association of Private Secondary Schools in Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental, (APSSCOMOR), and Palaran Algar, Private Schools and School Administrators Association of the Philippines (PRISAAP) Region X President.
The perspectives of the new campus and building will be made public in a presentation to be made at the Activity Center of Centrio Mall later in the afternoon.
For a little learning center which started with 14 students aged 2-6 years old, Little Me Academy has come a long way as it celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with over 300 students now enrolled at the pre-school, elementary and junior high school levels.
Real life couple Percival N. Olandesca and Ramonette L. Olandesca hail from Iligan City but chose to set up their learning center in Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro in September, 2006. Despite the boom in enrollment primarily driven by their proprietary reading skills system developed by the couple in-house, the school still maintains its one teacher to 12 student ratio for the pre-school and primary levels, and one teacher to 25 students for Grades 4-10.
Besides the classrooms and offices, the new facility will also house an expanded library; science, speech and computer laboratories; audio visual room and of course a chapel, Little Me Academy being a child centered school community from which students can grow to become morally upright, academically excellent and socially responsible citizens.
With its growing track record in academics and sports, the new campus will provide free reign to students to indulge and develop in extra-curricular activities such as campus journalism, campus ministry, visual and performing arts, public speaking and of course sports, especially mentored by Sir Ike, who has actively participated in Philippine national football games.
