AAI President, Albert Santoli added Bunot Elementary School and Poblacion Elementary School in the AAI-DA-DepED Gulayan sa Paaralan Program. He posted some messages about the inclusion of two schools in his Facebook timeline, on the walls of concerned schools, DIC Moore and Ma'am Mercia S. Alli, Sulu DA Head. Jurmainna H. Hunding, Head Teacher III of Bunot ES and Alyasir A. Hussam, TIC of Poblacion and Annex were already aware and grateful for being in the list of piloted MOBE schools for Gulayan sa Paaralan. In addition, Bro AL also informed the Sulu-Division Coordinator his approval and acceptance of Bunot Elementary School as member of the MOBE school; therefore; it should receive books supplies and other educational assistance of AAI whenever shipment arrives in Sulu.
At first, there were only three schools of Indanan South District listed as recipients of AAI-DA-DepED Gulayan sa Paaralan. It was Kasambuhan Village ES, Mukammali ES and Pasil ES. Coordination Meeting of all MOBE schools was already conducted in preparation for the 1-Day Training for school heads, school nurses, EPP teachers and ten volunteer parents coming from the seven piloted schools in Sulu. The one-day activity was re-scheduled for many times due to time constraint like the launching of Sulu Education Summit 2015, Division Policy Conference 2015 and many other activities of the DA.
Delay of the 1-Day Training on Gulayan sa Paaralan Program paved the entrance of Bunot Elementary School and Poblacion Elementary School into the AAI-DA-DepED Gulayan sa Paaralan Program that made AAI president to disseminate in the following manner:
"Very good... I have added Bunot and Poblacion also to AAIhealth-nutrition-gardening schools. If Sis Merica and DA don't have funds, AAIwill cover the cost of seeds, tools and pails with local counterpart inIndanan," Santoli commented under the FB post of Ma'am Mercia S. Alli.
"Dear Friends: I have added Bunot ES and Poblacion ES to AAI's Health/Nutrition/ Gardening Support program. DIC Samoore can send me a budget list of needs for the gardens at each school to supplement or match that already provided by DA Maam Mercia. All-around partnership. Prof. Al," Bro AL posted in DIC's wall.
"School garden at Bunot Elementary in Indanan, Sulu. Learningthe value of teamwork, proper nutrition, respect for the earth and communityself-reliance. And also "building future leaders" who learn torespect community and the earth that sustains us," AL commented on the garden photos of Bunot ES.
"Amazing school gardeners at Poblacion Elementary in Indanan,Sulu. So heart warming. I wake up every morning and thank God for this journey.So many wonderful people and kids!!" Bro AL commented on the garden photos of Poblacion ES.
