A GROUP of students from Inarajan Middle School recently participated in a cultural exchange program with the Good Shepherd Montessori School in Pasig City, Philippines.
From April 16 to 20, the students engaged in social and cultural awareness building activities with Filipino students and learned about the shared history of Guam and the Philippines.
While in the Philippines, the IMS students also visited the White Cross Orphanage in San Juan, as part of their community outreach activities, and presented the orphanage with donations and supplies.
Through the endorsement of the Philippine Consul-General of Guam, the group was able to tour Malacañang Palace, the official seat of government, and other historical sites and landmarks in Manila. Their stay in the city culminated in a dinner and cultural dance show at “Barbara’s” located in the historical walled city of Intramuros.
The IMS cultural exchange students who participated in the cultural exchange program include Eric Dizon, Marcus Guerrero, Cedric Paulino, Isaiah Sablan, Joseph Guerrero, Vance Camacho, Justin Nieves, Donovin Cabrera, Gavin Leon Guerrero, Melchor Padua, Jayar Aguero, Mikayla Reyes, Noalani Cruz, Tasi Rosario, and Kiana Aquino.
The students were accompanied by club advisors Vince Reyes, Liza Castro, Bertha Meno, David Gofigan, and IMS Assistant Principal Angel Legaspi.
Before leaving for the Philippines, Gov. Eddie Calvo appointed the students and their advisors as Honorary Ambassadors-At-Large for Guam.
