Zamboanga del Sur Cong. Victor Yu and Pagadian Mayor Samuel Co: Ayusin ang Landslide Wall ng Otto Lingue NHS

    1. Petition by

October 2012


After part of a local construction project was destroyed, Otto Lingue National High School in the Philippines faced a potential catastrophe: given expected heavy rains, the school could be blanketed by a landslide. After thousands of people signed this petition, the Philippines' Department of Education responded, sent staff to inspect the school, and is discussing immediate actions to keep students out of harm's way.


DepEd already responded and is already sending a staff from PFSED Pagadian to inspect the school.

A dialogue to discuss the immediate actions to be done is to be scheduled asap with the LGU, DepEd and Principal of Otto Lingue



An Open Letter from Principal Tess Tarranza:

Otto Lingue National High School has lately encountered a serious problem due to the destroyed portion of a "Riprap project" in which, if not given any immediate action, may cause correspondingly the destruction of the lives of students, teachers and school property. As it happened last July 17, 2012 and up to the present, nothing has been done except for the ocular survey of the City Engineer's office, Pagadian City with its recommendations. Considering the frequency of the heavy rains in the place where the school is located and latest worsening of the situation, hence, an appeal for sincere help is being asked through any individual or organization.

With the recent Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meeting on August 4, 2012, there were parents who have already expressed their apprehension regarding the situation that they have planned to let their childrein transfer to other nearby schools. Likewise, there were parents who would like that there will an investigation to be conducted regarding the construction of the said Riprap Project.

It is then our hope that appropriate action will be extended to the school the soonest possible time as the feeling of helplessness is felt except for the Divine Intervention.


Ang paaralan po ay may inaalala sa kanilang kaligtasan ng kanilang mga pasilidad , mga guro at mag-aaral. Meron pong malaking bitak sa ginawang pader para mapigilan ang landslide. Pinangangambahan ng mga guro at mga magulang na kung magkaroon ng isang malakas na ulan, ito po ay maaring bumigay at tumama sa katabing classroom. Isa ding pangamba ay ang magkaroon ng pagguho ng lupa dahil ang ginawang pader ay merong malaking bitak. Sana po ay inyong matugunan ang kanilang problema para sa kanilang kaligtasan.
