I don’t know when was Brigada Eskwela started because during our days in elementary and high school, there were no such school projects like this before.
Brigada Eskwela is an annual project and event of the Department of Education (DepEd) in the Philippines that aims to improve school facilities prior to the opening of the new academic year. This usually done a month or less before the start of the classes.
This year, the Brigada Eskwela 2012 focuses on the maintenance of the school hygiene as well as on sanitation which is by far a very good thing to eye onto because school environment — hygiene and sanitation really affects students health as well.
Good job for the teachers, parents and other part of the Brigada Eskwela!
