Brigada Eskwela 2018 enliven’s bayanihan spirit
As part of the Water District’s Gender and Development (GAD) program and social responsibility activities, MCWD’s Brigada Eskwela team visited eleven schools this year: Barugo National High School, Gregorio C. Catenza National High School, Camansi Elementary School, Carigara National High School, Jugaban National High School, Calingcaguing National High School, Carigara National Vocational School, Sogod Elementary School, Cong. Alberto T. Aguja Memorial Central School, Abango Elementary School and Cassidy Elementary School.
Armed with cleaning equipment and plumbing tools, the MCWD Brigada Eskwela volunteers, led by Engr. Erick Agosto, joined the week long maintenance work which involved all education stakeholders in contributing their time, effort and resources ensuring that public schools facilities were set in time before school opening in June.
Brigada Eskwela truly brings out the “bayanihan spirit” of the community people, teachers, students, volunteers from the government and non- government organizations, as well as private entities. MCWD, through the leadership of the General Manager Atty. Regidor V. Caballes and support of the Board of Directors, as the local water utility service provider in Metro Carigara, made sure that the incoming students will have access to safe drinking water. As such, Engr. Erick Agosto and his team meticulously assessed the status of the schools’ water lines and made the necessary repair works needed.
The spirit of working together for a noble cause lifts the morale of those involved in the Brigada Eskwela slated on May 28 to June 2, 2018 with the theme “Pagkakaisa para sa Handa, Ligtas, at Matatag na Paaralan Tungo sa Magandang Kinabukasan”. This is one laudable program that is being prompted by the Department of Education (DepEd) that we have to sustain in the coming years not only to yield active participation of the community people, parents and participating agencies and organizations, but a noble way to improve the schools’ facilities, with lesser expenses to the government.
Brigada Eskwela was once again proven as an effective vehicle to rouse the community and stakeholders’ “bayanihan spirit.”
