RD Cabral visited some elementary and secondary schools in the city, accompanied by Imus City SDS Rosemarie Torres and ASDS Ivan Brian Inductivo.

However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a virtual celebration of Teachers’ Day and opening of classes was held instead of the usual grand celebration.

For his part, RD Cabral reported live from Imus National High School in the presence of Imus City Mayor Emmanuel Maliksi, a staunch supporter of DepEd programs and activities. After conducting his live report, RD Cabral witnessed the conduct of online classes in some public schools namely Alapan I ES, Malagasang II ES, Bayan Luma I ES and Bukandala ES. (Public Affairs Unit)
