An Act converting the Tinalmud High School in Barangay Tinalmud, municipality of Pasacao, province of Camarines Sur into a national high school to be known as Tinalmud National High School.
Education is the key that allows people to move up in the world, seek better jobs,
and ultimately succeed fully in life. Education is very important, and no one should
be deprived of it.
The Constitution mandates the State to protect and promote the right of all citizens to
quality education at all levels and to take appropriate steps to make such education
accessible to all.
This bill seeks to convert the Tinalmud High School into the Tinalmud National High
School with the end view of promoting quality education as envisioned by the
Constitution as the Municipality of Pasacao does not have sufficient funds to support
the needs of the school and its students. Due to this situation, the school and its
students are currently suffering form lack of facilities, materials and qualified faculty.

In view of the foregoing reasons, the approval of this bill is earnestly sought.
