Joshua Project Latest Updates
On school year 2016 – 2017, K – 12 Program mandated by the Philippines’ Department of Education will be in its full implementation, with the offering of Senior High School programs. Olongapo Wesley School, Inc. responded to this positively and with enthusiasm: On 4 October 2014 your church school dedicated to God a 774 sqm lot, at No 4 Oregon St, Kalaklan, Olongapo City, purchased for 7.7 million PHP to construct a new school building that will house the Senior high school department of Olongapo Wesley School, Inc. Our Manila Episcopal Area (MEA) Bishop Rudy Juan, Zambales District Superintendent Roger Ebalo, and Olongapo City officials, officiated the ground-breaking ceremony. Also present were the school Board of Trustees, incorporators, school executives, faculty, and most especially, our students.
The building is envisioned to be a four-storey school and, God willing, could also offer Tertiary and special theological education in the future. The entire project, inclusive of pre-construction, actual construction and equipping of facilities, is projected for completion in April 2016. The total project cost is estimated at 50 Million PHP.
