Today is the opening of the Brigada Eskwela on all public elementary and high schools in the Philippines. It’s an annual activity done to prepare all the schools for the opening of classes comes June. All stakeholders are enjoined to the said activity.
I was overwhelmed by the concerned of 10 of my former students who some of them have just come from a vacation but came home earlier to join the occasion as volunteers. Thanks to Tatay Lucring(a PTA officer) of the 1 gal paint donation and to William (my student) who also donated a liter of paint. The spirit of bayanihan, a communal activty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communal_work ) is still alive. Everybody helped in the repainting of my classroom walls! Mabuhay (Long live)!
