With less than a month to go before school year 2016 to 2017 begin for public elementary and secondary schools nationwide, the Department of Education (DepEd) is set to have its annual Brigada Eskwela from May 30 to June 3.

Formally known as the National Schools Maintenance Week, the theme for this year’s Brigada Eskwela is “Tayo Para sa Paaralang Ligtas, Maayos at Handa, mula Kindergarten hanggang Senior High School.”

During this week, school administrators, teachers, students, their parents, and volunteers from the barangay work together to improve the school’s facilities. Their activities include repainting classrooms and other parts of the school building, thorough cleaning, repairing damaged chairs, desks, tables, etc., among others. Private entities are also expected to make donations during this period.

Started in 2003, Brigada Eskwela has three main objectives:
1) to practice shared governance,
2) to bring the spirit of education to the community level, and
3) to utilize local resources to public schools.

The conduct of “Brigada Eskwela” is mandated by the Adopt-A-School Act of 1998. The law paved the way for private entities to help schools of their choice in the area of staff and faculty development for training and further education, construction of facilities; upgrading of existing facilities, provision of books, publications and other instructional materials, and modernization of instructional technologies.

Interested parties may directly contact the schools where they want to volunteer for details on how they can help. More information about Brigada Eskwela can be read through this manual released by DepEd.
