Rosario Central School was the first model school to implement DepEd's EHCP in Northern Samar. Through the leadership of Dr. Gertrudes Mabutin, the school was able to build several low-cost wash facilities that helped schoolchildren establish daily handwashing and toothbrushing habits.
In 2012, Lenore Salor took over as head of the school and was endorsed by Dr. Mabutin, Rosario CS School Nurse Fe Bacuetes, and division of Northern Samar Medical Officer Dr. Warren Otadoy to continue the program.
Through her determination and ingenuity, Salor gathered the support and commitment of the teachers, parents, and community to bring implementation to another level – to install a water tank to replace the rain catchment, lobby for secure water source, and to build durable concrete wash facilities.
