Brigada Eskwela springs to action today


JUST as the dust of the May 13 polls starts to settle, students, teachers, parents and volunteers will troop back to public schools today to help spruce up the campuses for the opening of classes on June 3.

Department of Education (DepEd) Regional Director Carmelita Dulangon said the Brigada Eskwela 2013 starts today and will continue until May 25.

Dulangon is inviting everyone to help prepare  the classrooms and school facilities.

She encouraged not just the parents and students but the youth organizations, student leaders, alumni, parents-teachers-association, non-government organization, DepEd benefactors, donors, and partners, business firms, government workers and members of church organizations to join Brigada Eskwela.

She said everyone should get involved as all are stakeholders in education.

Kick off

Dulangon said that the Brigada Eskwela will start at 6 a.m. today with a short kick-off program.

At 6 a.m., school division superintendents will lead motorcades and/or civic parades to help call for support to the project.

The 19 school divisions in Central Visayas said Dulangon will spring into action to repair damaged chairs, tables, windows, repainting of classrooms and other school facilities which have just seen heated elections action.

Dulangon assures everyone that Brigada Eskwela 2013 will be fun and exciting since there will be programs prepared for the stakeholders to participate.

Last year, more than 6 million volunteers turned up in Central Visayas.

According to Vivian Ginate, Chief, Resources Mobilization of Special Programs and Projects of DepEd, compared to last year the regional supervisors will be monitoring the 19 divisions and they were involved from place to place, but this year, they will be concentrating on their respective divisions and would be assisting the teachers and other stakeholders.

Awards

This year, the DepEd is holding the best Brigada awards.

It will be based on the scope of work – repair and maintenance completed, volunteer participation and diversity, impact of the activity and resource generation./Christine Emily L. Pantaleon with reports from Michelle Joy L. Padayhag
