AFTER a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic, the Department of Education (DepEd) Danao City Division launched Friday, August 5, the “Brigada Eskwela,” which marks the preparations for the upcoming implementation of full face-to-face classes on November 2, 2022.

Dr. Glenn Tahanlangit, chief education supervisor of DepEd Danao City Division, said every district prepared a booth where they showcased their top five priorities that need support from the stakeholders.

Tahanlangit said they also prepared networking snacks as their friendly welcome to the different major stakeholders.

The event was also highlighted with the turnover of donations from different stakeholders.

The schools division superintendent, Dr. Leah P. Noveras, assured that the schools are now ready to cater the full face-to-face classes on November 2, considering that “all our 60 public and seven private schools implemented the limited physical classes with safety seal last School Year 2021-2022.”

Danao City Mayor Thomas Mark Durano said Brigada Eskwela is a proof of an effective collaboration and support from the school, stakeholders, and the City Government of Danao who have been supporting all the programs, activities, and projects in all public and private schools in the city.

Among the stakeholders who were in attendance during the event were Rotary Club of Cebu; Republic Cement, Bernice Ang & Co. of Singapore; Cebu Mitsumi; MLhuillier; Cemimco; Security Bank Foundation Inc.; Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP); Taytay Intergrated School PTA Officials; and Bureau of Fire Protection.

The event was also participated by the Danao City officials led by Durano and Councilors Carmen Remedios Durano, Adano Roble, Don Roel “Pangging” Arias, and barangay captains.

DepEd is eyeing the full implementation of face-to-face classes nationwide by November this year. (PR)
