PES Participates in the Brigada Eskwela Division-Wide Kick Off

Brigada Eskwela (BE) is an annual program of the Department of Education (DepED) that seeks to coordinate volunteers to help public schools to be ready for the start of classes. This annual activity also aims to develop a strategy for school renovations and maintenance, including school administrators, teachers, members of the local government, community volunteers, and other stakeholders. The program entails maintaining the classrooms' cleanliness, fixing chairs and desks, and making sure that the school's facilities are fit for the learners' use.

The BE program's official launch event includes campaigns and other activities to increase participation and volunteerism. Other Schools Division Offices (SDOs) and schools are trying new trends for launching of their BE. Recently, SDO San Juan City held its Division-Wide Kick-Off held at West Crame Elementary School on August 14, 2023, which was participated by all public schools both elementary and high school including Pinaglabanan Elementary School.

For the School Year 2023-2024, the theme “Bayanihan para sa Matatag na Paaralan” highlights the significance of working together for the school and for the learners. PES gathered its stakeholders to cooperate on organizing and cleaning in preparation for the start of the new school year. Volunteers from different agencies such as BFP, PNP, LGU and other NGOs are involved and participated in this program.

Schools may create a welcoming environment for learning by continuing the Brigada Eskwela program since it is a year-round activity. Additionally, it improves the connection and teamwork between the school and other linkages which may result in better local support for education. Together, the community can establish a welcoming and supportive learning environment for learners to start the new academic year.
