Schools divisions nationwide are all set for 2014 Brigada Eskwela which kicks off today in public elementary and high schools in the Philippines.
A Department of Education (DepEd) announcement said all personnel will attend this event and government offices and other stakeholders are also invited to participate.
The DepEd has scheduled the conduct of the Brigada Eskwela 2014, also known as the National Schools Maintenance Week from May 19 to 24, 2014. This school maintenance effort engages all education stakeholders to contribute their time, effort and resources in ensuring that the public school facilities are ready in time for the opening of classes in the elementary and high school levels on June 2.
In his Memorandum No. 32, S. 2014, Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro mentioned that for this year, the Brigada Eskwela effort will focus on making schools disaster-ready, and on developing disaster-resilient school communities.
