President Aquino approves measure renaming Batasan Hills High School after Cory Aquino

MANILA, Dec 17 (PNA) -- President Benigno S. Aquino III has signed into law an Act renaming Batasan Hills National High School in Quezon City after his mother, the late President Cory Aquino.

President Aquino signed last Dec. 10 Republic Act No. 10716, which changes the name of Batasan Hills National High School in Barangay Batasan Hills to Corazon C. Aquino National High School in honor of the country’s first female president.

“The main campus of the Corazon C. Aquino National High School shall continue to remain in its present location in Barangay Batasan Hills, City of Quezon, Metro Manila,” the law states.

The measure, which originated in the House of Representatives, was passed by the House and the Senate on Feb. 24, 2014 and Oct. 5, 2015, respectively. (PNA)
