SAGADA, MOUNTAIN PROVINCE – In time with the celebration of his 41st birthday, actor Piolo Pascual with students, parents and teachers of Sagada Central School (SCS) and government officials inaugurated the installed stage roofing of the school January 12 this year.
Piolo in his message said he wanted to share his blessings to Sagada.
The actor donned with the cultural G- String or ‘wa-nes’ by Patay Poblacion barangay chairman Dennis Lopez, played gongs with the parents and students of the school joined by students of nearby Sagada National High School (SNHS).
He visited Sagada along with his family, his son Inigo and film director Joyce Bernal who was also donned with the cultural ‘tapis’. This is the third time the actor visited the tourist town since 2005. 
Communications were earlier effected by film maker Ferdinand Balanag through Gwen Gaongen-Longid, president of Parents- Teachers Association (PTA) of SCS on the construction of the P400,000 roofing efficiently done before the actor’s birthdate and visit to Sagada.
Longid said further plans of PTA are on the process with the roof covering of the quadrangle and the improvement of the stage for purposes including conferences and big assembly gatherings.
On said inauguration, Randy Awisan, executive assistant to the office of Provincial Governor Bonifacio Lacwasan said covering of the quadrangle is considered as one project to be allocated some funding.  
Sagada Mayor James Pooten Jr in his message also forwarded his support for  the improvement of the stage and the extended quadrangle roofing.
For quite some time, school pupils and audience have to bear with the heat of the sun during hours-long activities including graduation rites.   

The stage roofing had been a long term plan of the PTA of SCS, reaffirmed the past year and reaffirmed again immediately after the inauguration ceremonies.
