Bayog town supports “Brigada Eskwela 2015”

By Claro A. Lanipa

BAYOG, Zamboanga del Sur – The municipal government here led by Mayor Leonardo Babasa Jr. has joined the annual Brigada Eskuwela 2015 known as National Schools Maintenance Week starting May 18-23.

Two hundred eighty five municipal officials and personnel participated in the Brigada Eskuwela on Tuesday at the Bayog National High School, the largest secondary school in the municipality and second biggest national high school in terms of population in the province.

Joining the municipal officials are the personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Bayog Police Station and local residents.

This is the second time that the municipal officials and personnel shared their time and effort in the preparation of the school facilities for the upcoming opening of  classes for school year 2015-2016.

The group was not only involved in cleaning the entire surroundings of the school but also in the hauling of sand and gravel to cover the muddy portion of the school  premises and in the painting of the classrooms and roofs.

With this noble undertaking, Mayor Babasa believes it would help promote the values of volunteerism and cooperation among the members of the community.

On the other hand, the same group also conducted the same activity at the Bayog Central Elementary School last May 21.

Both schools in this municipality aspire to get the award as one of the best implementing schools not only in the region but in the entire country as well. (with reports from Bernadine Gabawan)
