In consonance to the mandate of Republic Act 8525 or the Adopt-A-School Act of 1998, Cauayan City National High School (CCNHS) kicked-off Brigada Eskwela 2012 in May 21-25, 2012.
To promote Brigada Eskwela and to attract supporters to attain its objectives, the school tapped last summer the broadcast media-Bombo Radyo and Hot FM radio stations, to advertise the conduct of BE ’12. The provincial government of Isabela, under the leadership of Gov. Faustino “Bojie” G. Dy III poured out most of the unprecedented supports in the form of donations.
He himself did the ribbon-cutting in the opening ceremony of the Home Economics building he donated amounting to P1.4M to the school headed by Mr. John R. Mina together with the head teachers and the faculty. He also provided the school another four-classroom building amounting to P1.9M.
More stakeholders from the community responded to the call of BE ’12 who manifested the spirit of “bayanihan”.
Foremost were the parents who prepared each classroom for the immediate conduct of classes on June 4 as they cleaned and repainted classrooms and furniture, weeded and trimmed plants, organized their Brigada officers as ad hoc to look for and address the needs of their children’s classrooms.
