EMPLOYEE-volunteers of Apo Cement Corp. helped rehabilitate and improve the facilities of Naalad Elementary School in Naga City, Cebu 10 days before classes started for the school year 2019-2020.
They joined the teaching staff led by school head Jared Revoltiado in undertaking some repair works, and in repainting some classrooms and the school social hall in the spirit of Bayanihan espoused by the Brigada Eskwela program of the Department of Education (DepEd).
Every year, Apo supports and participates in the annual National Schools Maintenance Week of the DepEd with its materials supplier—Apo Land and Quarry Corp. (ALQC).
For 2019, guided by DepEd’s theme “Matatag na Bayan para sa Maunlad na Paaralan (Strong Nation for a Progressive School),” Apo and ALQC chose the public school in Barangay Naalad, one of its host barangays located about two kilometers upland from the city proper. (S)
