Mapúa MCL Joins Brigada Eskwela 2023
Brigada Eskwela is an annual program of the Department of Education. In 2022, the theme was ‘Tugon sa Hamon ng Ligtas ra Balik-Aral’ and it highlighted the collective efforts from various partners of the schools at the local and national levels to address children’s learning gaps and create a safe learning environment for both the learners, teaching and nonteaching personnel, and the entire community for the achievement of quality basic education.
Specifically, the program boosts the schools’ maintenance and repair activities, which includes the provision of the immediate needs of both the schools and children. Brigada Eskwela 2022 focused on providing the students with health essentials due to the Covid 19 pandemic and addressing resource gaps for the reopening of face-to-face classes. The program also strengthened engagements with partners and stakeholders (i.e., private sector, academe, industries) that complement the efforts of the DepEd to ensure quality basic education. The MMCL has been regularly participating in the annual observance of Brigada Eskwela by providing all essential kinds of donations (i.e., alcohol, face masks, school supplies, and materials for renovation of the school building) to its partner schools from the Province of Laguna.
