YCS spearheads Brigada Eskwela 2016
The Young Community Stewards conducted its Brigada Eskwela on May 30 and June 2 at Northville IV-B Elementary School and Juan Sumulong Elementary School, respectively. With the main objective of giving the students and teachers a clean and well-prepared facilities, the said activity was participated in by officers from 13 organizations in the high school.
“Our goal for the activity was to help make the school ready for the students and teachers,” says Mary Elspeth Cabalquinto, president of the Young Community Stewards. Aside from cleaning and repairing the facilities, art-related organizations also painted the walls and fences outside the school. This community service is also a perfect opportunity for the volunteers to open their eyes in appreciating the well-maintained facilities of a school.
Fortunately, the number of participants was higher compared to the last conducted Brigada Eskwela which was in 2014. This has proved that more organizations are willing to participate in outreach programs. Furthermore, the activity gave emphasis to the importance of school sanitation and hygiene to help students focus as the school year starts.
