The Zamboanga City Schools Division announces the conduct of the National Schools Maintenance Week or Brigada Eskwela, with the theme “Making our Schools Safer” on May 19-24, 2014.

It is the Department of Education’s undertaking in bringing together teachers, parents, the community and stakeholders to do clean up and repairs  in public schools to prepare the facilities for the opening of classes in June.

Stakeholders contribute their time, effort and resources in ensuring that public school facilities are set in time for the forthcoming school opening. It has brought about remarkable results in the spirit of volunteerism in rehabilitating school facilities in the past years. This year, Zamboanga City Division will continue its effort to sustain this endeavour and will focus on making the schools disaster ready and will develop disaster resilient schools. This is to ease the schools’ vulnerability to both natural and human made disasters.

The activity will commence with a motorcade on Monday, May 19, 2014 at  6:30am from the Division Office which will end in two different points for the kick-off ceremonies.

*West Coast: From the Division Office to Governor Camins Avenue-Sta. Maria-Gov. Ramos Avenue and will end at Sta. Catalina Vda. de Jalon ES to be led by OIC-Schools Division Superintendent, Pedro Melchor M. Natividad.

*East Coast: From the Division Office to: Gov. Camins Avenue-Veterans Avenue-Don Alfaro Street and will end at ZCHS-Main to be led by OIC-Assistant Schools Division Superintendent, Julieto H. Fernandez.

Everyone is invited —stakeholders from private organizations, national and local government agencies, organizations and foundations —to join in this effort to share their time and resources in kind, especially those that were used as evacuation centers during the siege and typhoon.
