Annually, Metro Pacific Tollways South never missed participating in Brigada Eskwela of various schools. This year, 4 schools are the beneficiaries of the company’s partake. These schools are Alapan II Elementary School, Villamor Air Base Elementary School, Binakayan National High, and Emiliano Tria Tirona Memorial National High School.
Brigada Eskwela is otherwise known as the Annual National Schools Maintenance with the theme, “Pagpapanatili ng Bayanihan Tungo sa Kalidad na Edukasyon para sa Kabataan” conducts this activity to bring together education stakeholders to participate and contribute their time, effort and resources. The schools are part of the host communities under Cavite, C5 Link Flyover, and CALAX. All are public schools and are mentioned to have students who are unable to buy school needs especially during this pandemic season. Most families lost their jobs and might have difficulty in sufficing their daily needs and might not be able to buy their school supplies/needs.
The donation costs 196,000 pesos for all 4 schools. It comprises 900 bags of school supplies which can help 900 students.
Ms. Emily Agustin of Villamor Air Base Elementary School expresses her gratitude to the company. She said, “Thank you to the management because this will help students especially those who cannot afford to buy. More power and God bless!”
According to Ms. Shirley Ferrer of Alapan II Elementary School, “Maraming Salamat po sa pamunuan ng Metro Pacific Tollways South dahil maraming estudyante po ang matutulungan ng inyong mga binigay.”
During this pandemic season, everyone must be flexible, like what the education sector is doing. It will be the first time that face to face learning discussion will not be applied. We can see how educators embrace the challenges of the new normal. For now, it is best to support even in our little ways the plans for the education sector. Let us not forget to do our part during these challenging times.
