What is the name and postal mailing address of the highschool that Julia Campbell taught in the Philippines ?

I came across her blog, October 12 2005 entry, asking her friends to donate a BOOK (and a buck), to send to the school where she was teaching.


The October 12, 2005 entry.

I do not know Julia personally, nor am I one of the friends she called on to donate "A BOOK and A BUCK" for the high school where she taught.

My children and I plan on collecting (and buying) used books in the next 3 to 6 months, to send to this school, to honor Julia Campbell's work as a PEACE CORPS volunteer teacher in this public school.

I am a Filipino, educated in the Philippines (went to a public school in college) , now living in the US.

As I understand it, she taught college english courses in the second semester of school year 2006-2007 (if I am correct, it must have started in November 2006, ended in March 2007).

But prior to that, her blog indicated that she lived in Barangay Awii in Donsol, Sorsogon,

and taught english in a public highschool there.

From Julia's own essay, in


she wrote :

After the initial culture shock, I settled into my new life in the Philippines, especially here in Bicol. I was first assigned to a high school in Donsol, Sorsogon. l in love with sili and learned to magpiga with the rest of them.


I started here at the Divine Word College of Legazpi in early November to teach English for one Semester. Teaching in high school is a challenge because the students are not yet mature. Itís been a wonderful challenge to move to the college level and to meet so many hardworking, smart and dedicated teachers and students.

I would like to find out the name of that highschool in Donsol, Sorsogon. And also their mailing address.
