It is no magic that this school was transformed into a spick and span elementary school. There were sectoral groups of concerned stakeholders that did a great job in making this school prepared for the opening of classes as they did a 6-day maintenance of the school in a national school maintenance week or known as Brigada Eskwela which started on May 21 to 26, 2012.

Group Representation 

This group is a representative of the youth, the students, the women, the parents, the professionals, the workers, and the laborers, and even the local government unit like the Barangay. In short the community is well represented.

They managed to facelift the school for a matter of six days through the spirit of volunteerism.

Day-to-Day Activities

Day 6 - The last day for the school maintenance. Only few came back to complete their 6-day task. Teachers wrote some lesson plans. Some were replanting their respective plant boxes. Some were repainting their broom boxes and garbage receptacles.

Brigada Eskwela: Bayanihan Spirit 

In a Bayanihan spirit, three hundred three stakeholders showed their full support in this 6-day Brigada Eskwela or national school maintenance of Cubay Elem. School by spending their time in making the school ready for the opening of classes. Everyone in the barangay or community did their share by giving their best service or whatever he/she may donate or offer.

The pupils will not do the menial task of cleaning their own classrooms, disposing the garbage, sweeping the ground, among others. Instead, they will be attending their regular classes, doing their first assignment, writing and answering their first quizzes.

This blogger who is the school principal of Cubay Elem. School is expressing his heartfelt appreciation and gratefulness to all those who have done their best and given their sincere, all-out support in the form of their invaluable service, financial assistance, moral and prayer of faith.
