Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.Nelson Mandela
The past two years of blended learning didn’t stop Metro Pacific Tollways South Management Corp. to share its blessings with different public schools. Donations of school supplies and hygiene materials were given to various schools over the past years.
This year hits differently. Face-to-face classes already started and are set to be in full swing come November. It is with hearts that are willing to help that gives the company the willingness to support the traditional Brigada Eskwela wherein volunteers get to experience the on-hand cleaning, painting, and fixing of cabinets, in classrooms.
Brigada Eskwela kicks off on August 1, 2022, with the theme, “Tugon sa Hamon ng Ligtas na Balik-aral” and ends on August 22, 2022. Brigada Eskwela promotes collaboration between the school, and internal and external stakeholders in helping the school provide services and for students to have a conducive learning experience during their stay.
Volunteerism and willingness of MPT South employees led to successful Brigada Eskwela engagement to 6 public schools situated near our expressways in CAVITEX and CALAX. Happiness is seen in the eyes of every volunteer, words, and gestures of gratitude were stated by the schools and their teachers.
“Maraming salamat po sa inyo. Kindly extend our deepest gratitude to the management of MPTS and may God bless your company more.”, Dr. Marlyn Pagtakhan, Principal of Alapan II Elementary School.
Alapan II Elementary School, Loma Elementary School, Digman Elementary School, Molino Elementary School, Emiliano Tria Tirona Memorial National Integrated High School, and Binakayan Elementary School are this year’s beneficiaries. Paints, paint materials, safety vests, cleaning materials, sanitation tower, and school supplies were given to the schools.
MPT South, led by the Stakeholder Management team gears toward better engagement and other means of assisting its stakeholders. Education is valuable and the least that we can do is to help students have a conducive learning experience through clean and organized classrooms.
