DepEd official calls for year-round Brigada Eskwela

Tabuk City, Kalinga (4 June) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) in the region has successfully conducted this year's regional launching of the Brigada Eskwela at Appas Elementary School here.

Participated by DepEd officials headed by Regional Director Josefina Tamondong, local officials parents and other stakeholders, the event started with a motorcade and was followed by a short program which culminated with the release of balloons signifying the start of the National School Maintenance Week activities or Brigada Eskwela.

Tamondong stressed the importance of community participation in the event. She encouraged that everybody should take a step in helping public schools prepare for the opening of classes. This she said will ensure that pupils and students will have a school conducive for learning on the first day of classes.

To ensure that schools are maintained throughout the school year, the DepEd schemed to have the brigada eskwela become an all year round activity. This she said encourages the cooperation of all stakeholders to participate. Through the Brigada Eskwela, the bayanihan system value of the Filipinos she said is enhanced.

Tamondong said during the opening of classes, school administrations and pupils could still face problems in terms of lack of books and teachers due to increase of student population and other factors.

Deped is doing its best to address these foreseen problems. This, she said, is the reason why the agency is soliciting the help of the community in doing school cleaning, repairs, painting and other maintenance work to help prepare the schools at least in the local level.
