Orica Philippines Proudly Supporting the Limay Community  

Orica Philippines upgrades local

school with Community Partnerships grant

Orica Limay has successfully delivered the first of two education projects through the Orica Community Partnerships Program. 
 
Upgrading local educational facilities has been identified by the Limay site as a key community investment focus. Working with the District Education Board and the school itself, Limay developed the specific project for Carbon Elementary School, which is located close to the Orica site. 

While its student population is growing, its relative small size meant that the school was finding it difficult to compete for government funding. Orica’s contribution has created an effective and engaging learning space that the school would otherwise have been unable to realise. 

Initiative Champion Emi Gabinete said that entire school cohort of 400
 students would benefit from the modern equipment and more suitable furniture. 

“We’re particularly proud that Carbon Elementary School is now one of the few public schools in Bataan with a white board, which has significantly reduced dust in the classroom and created a
healthier environment for students and teachers,” Emi said. 

Emi was joined by fellow Orica Limay QSHEC team members at Carbon Elementary School last week at a ceremony also attended by representatives from the Provincial Government of Bataan, the Department of Education and Barangay Council. 

“It was a privilege to hear school principal Rowena Lisud express how fortunate she felt to have Orica as the school's partner in promoting quality education,” Emi said. “We are now looking forward to working with additional partner schools in the region on projects".  

We are proud to build long lasting relationships, positive contributions to local growth and development in education in science, technology and innovation.
