History of Bucal 2 Elementary School

BUCAL II ELEMENTARY SCHOOL is situated in a 4563 sq. m. lot in Barangay Bucal 2, Maragondon,Cavite.  According to the people of barangay, the school was established in 1936.   It started with just one classroom for Grade I located at the house of a certain Anglo family in barangay Bucal 2.  The enrolment increased every year until it catered up to four classes, from Grades I – IV located in different houses namely Sisayan Family, Castronuevo Family and Gutierrez Family in Barangay Bucal 3.  
      In the year, 1952 after the World War II, the school became a complete elementary catering pupils from Grades I to VI.

..."If My people who bear My name, humble themselves and pray and seek My presence and turn from their wicked ways, I Myself will hear from Heaven and forgive their sins..." (2 Chron. 7:14) - "You will see that in prayer you will find more knowledge, more light, more strength, more grace and virtue than you could ever achieve by reading many books, or by great studies. Never consider as wasted the time you spend in prayer. You will discover that in prayer God communicates to you the light, strength and grace you need..." (Sr Lucia dos Santos)
