January 10,2013 Journalism Academy, Lemery

PILMES had three student journalists who qualified. Their coaches are Mam Rachiel, Mam Arlene and Mam Ana. So, off to Lemery we went to take the journalists to attend the 10 day training. The district-wide training culminated in a competition and they all won! So the next step will be regional training in Nasabu, Batangas. Pupils stay overnight but teachers may choose to commute. The teachers will travel two hours each way for five days, working straight through the weekend. The fifth day is the awards ceremony. If one or more of our pupils wins we will all be going to a distant location and staying for the week-long national academy.

There is much that is tedious about this, mostly the "hurry up and wait" processes, but we manage to have fun. 
So dignified, so professional...
                         and then...   (Mam Isa on the far right, is new to our group, can you tell?)

This is my favorite of Mam Isa. So demure.

It's just a quick snooze between appliance repairs.
Mam Ana's daughter, Mayann, came with us.
My chariots await.
Here's a charmer, working the crowds for the jeepney drivers.
