Jagna - Considered as a significant intervention activity in the
schools’ physical faciulities management, Brigada Eskwela 2008 was launched here
on June 2 by Department of Education (DepEd) officials and teachers at the Jagna
Central Elemntary School ground.
This was spearheaded by the tandem of the youthful and energetic schools
district coordinating principal Mrs. Delfina Olaa and Jagna Central Elementary
School Principal Mrs. Thelma Jalop.
The affair was truly a meaningful event as the whole teaching force of the
district and the people in the private sector like the People’s Organization
(POs), the Local Government Unit (LGU), the Federation of Parent-Teacher
Association (FPTA) and the community were involved.
Although the Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Elpidio Jala, Ph.D. wasn’t able
to attend the occasion due to conflict of time, Assistant Schools Division
Superintendent Maria Lina Namocatcat took his place.
Together in attendance were division executive officers Ernesto Calamba, Mrs.
Sonia Flor Kapirig and Mrs. Tarcisia Quilatan and Florencio Talan, the Division
Brigada Eskwela Coordinator.
DepEd officials in the higher echelons included Dr. Vivian Yarte, the Regional
Supervisor in the alternative Learning System (ALS) with her Division
counterpart Mrs. Generosa Landagan.
The group that visited here were on their provincewide task force caravan in
support of this massive voluntary action now institutionalized by DepEd.
It was learned that one of the underlying interests on this particular
innovative measure embarked by the school is the preparation of the classrooms,
teaching materials and devises and other physical facilities for ready use in
the opening of classes that would spell the attainment of quality education.
Meanwhile, former 3rd District of Bohol Congressman Eladio “Boy” Jala, the
generous donor of the 25 sets of computer was present to personally turn-over
“These sets of computer are all brand new... to include the printer machines which
are of durable quality."
"I encouraged the teachers to use these equipments for
your pupils’ benefits…after all these are not for the teachers but for the
learners themselves. Please take good care of these,” said Atty. Boy Jala.
