Other Information

Official Name of the Barrio

     Long before its name, Banaba South has been recognized as the mat weaving center. Due to this fact, Banaba South was called “Magbabanig”. When the barrio captain, Melecio Macaraig was assigned as the head of the barrio, the local arrangement made. This name Magbabanig was changed to Banaba south due to the fact that it is the Southern part of the original barrio Banaba. There were succeeding captain del barrios too. Each of them work hard for the success of the said barrio term because he succeeded in organizing our school and community improvement.

     The place became the dumping ground of explosive for the invasion of Japan.Pilferers were rampant. These explosives rurglrt many lives before they were dumped in the mid ocean by the bomb disposal.
