Brigada Eskwela

Brigada Eskwela is also called “Bayanihan sa Paaralan” which aims to make the school ready for the students and teachers when classes open in June.

Activities include repainting of the schools and the classrooms, cleaning of school vicinity, gardening, repairing of leaking roofs, water pipes, chairs, desks, fences and others.
“We see to it that we BJMP is a constant participant to the annual Brigada Eskwela because we want to help DepEd prepare for the start of classes. More so because our personnel enjoy doing the job,” said BJMP Officer-in-Charge, Jail Chief Superintendent Diony D. Mamaril.

Mamaril added that joining Brigada is also BJMP’s way of thanking DepEd in its continuous support to the Jail Bureau’s program for inmates’ welfare and development like through the Alternative Learning System where inmates get a chance for education.

More jails are yet to join in the local Brigada Eskwela activities in their areas. Mamaril said BJMP could not deploy its personnel from jail units simultaneously because BJMP remains in control of provincial jails nationwide for the duration of the election period through Commission on Elections Resolution No. 9690.

Meanwhile, BJMP Community Relations Service Officer Jail Inspector Xavier A. Solda said this collaboration of BJMP and DepEd is a prelude to the nationwide Read-a-Book activity in schools on June 17.

“Jail officers will be reading stories promoting good Filipino values to elementary and kindergarten pupils,” said Solda.

During its launch last year, 6,500 children benefitted from the read-a-book activity.
