Brigada Eskwelaalso known as “Bayanihan Para sa Paaralan (Working together for Schools)” is a nationwide initiative by the Department of Education (DepEd) that promotes collective effort for public schools’ maintenance.
In support of this government initiative, CLC, Chelsea Shipping Corp. (Chelsea Shipping), PNX- ChelseaShipping Corp. (PNX – Chelsea), and Starlite Ferries, Inc. (Starlite) have collaborated in repainting the classroom walls and fences of Tipas Elementary School (TES) in Taguig City and Julian A. Pastor Memorial Elementary School (JAPMES) in Batangas City on May 26, 2018.
Further, in coordination with the teachers and school volunteers, we were able to provide primary school materials including bags, notebooks, pencils, box of crayons, and pad papers to thirty-five (35) Grade 3 pupils of TES. CLC also donated a sack of floor wax, and several children’s books for their classroom library project.
The Brigada Eskwela may seem simple, but no effort is too small to make a difference. By getting involved, the Chelsea Group has contributed in promoting an effective learning environment for young children and that small act is a significant step to every child’s education.
