These are the things that really happen, no sugar coating or anything. I had been in a public school once in my life. I did crossed flood water during rainy season, and even manage to have few classes under the shade of trees, but to be honest it didn’t bother me and instead it challenges me to study more and attain that education I needed to bring me where I am now. Brigada Eskwela for me, it is homecoming and passing of hat at the same time. Homecoming meaning, it give me chance to have a glimpse of those beautiful memories of what was my life during my academe years, those small laughs, jokes, fun during recess and physical education classes, those day dreaming when I am not interested on the class discussions, being “bibo” when I like the topic, and of course the friendship that blooms from simple hi, hello, what’s our assignment, do you have assignment and can I borrow your red ballpen. Pasig Elementary School was not the school I came from, but of course like what I always say, it can be a substitute.
Lastly, I call it passing of hat. Brigada Eskwela is the kick off to the beginning of the opening of the school year. With new batch of students and new challenges that they will be facing, I think letting them see a clean classroom and complete/partly complete educational materials can actually brighten up their day. It happens to me, and I hope soon aside from Brigada Eskwela the government and individuals can work a bigger plan to have a continuous project for the students especially in the public school. And I hope the budget for education should be properly distributed and used according to the needs of the students and schools.
