PGMA visits iSchools in Binalonan

Binalonan, Pangasinan – Today is the town’s fiesta. Part of the festivities is a visit from a daughter of the Province, who is no less than the President of the Philippines – Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

As early as 8:00 in the morning, teachers, students and staff of Juan G. Macaraeg National High School were on the ready for the arrival of the President. Armed with their welcome placards and smiles, they eagerly and patiently awaited the arrival of the President.




PGMA arrived at about 10:30 and immediately proceeded to unveil the signage for the Library Hub. She also inspected the contents of the library. She was all smiles in greeting the throng of teachers and students who endured the scorching heat of the sun for her visit.


The President then, visited the iSchools Laboratory which is located at the second floor of the Administration building. Due to her busy schedule for the day, she was only in the lab for a very short time. Just enough though to exchange pleasantries with the Project Manager and acknowledge the few students working in the computer laboratory. She then moved on to her next destination, the Social Hall of Binalonan.


Though, short was the visit, it meant a lot to her kababayans– it showed them how important they are.  Her presence stirred in them a sense of pride and joy. Overheard were students expressing their happiness in getting a glimpse of the President.
