Guimbal (in Iloilo) is definitely not a sleepy town---with resorts dotting its shoreline (and one even having exotic animals!), a beautiful white public plaza with the town hall as its centre, and unique Moro watchtowers, Guimbal has its own share of sights.
Apart from the local landmarks, Guimbal is special because it has been part of Checkmyschool for two years. This year, when we visited Guimbal for the orientation of volunteers and yearly data updating, we (Erica and Kay of the CMS Secretariat) were joined by two DepEd representatives, Ms. Meryll Tabin and Ms. Evelyn Relor.
Last January 22-24, Checkmyschool activities began in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur. An orientation on Checkmyschool, data-updating protocols, and monitoring procedures was given to school heads, PTA representatives, and student leaders of Marawi City.
