The PSHS Central Visayas Campus in Argao, Cebu has finished the construction of their makeshift classrooms last November 21, 2013. This campus suffered from effects of an earthquake that shook the Visayas island last October 15, 2013.

On October 16, 2013, began a campaign to raise funds for the emergency use of the campus. With close coordination of campus director Dr. Warren Cordeta, PSHS System Director Dr. Josette Biyo and officers of the PSHS Foundation and PSHS National Alumni Association, funds were raised to partially cover the construction of makeshift classrooms which the campus is now using to hold their classes while the structural problems of their buildings are being resolved.

Through the efforts of 59 donors, P441,500 was raised for the campaign through in a span of a month. Many of the donors were alumni of the PSHS System. Classes in the campus resumed last November 11, 2013.

Below are more pictures of the makeshift classrooms. The PSHS CVisC community plans to paint these classrooms themselves.
