Philippines: DepEd ensures schools ready for disasters
Ensuring that the 126 public schools in the city are disaster-prepared is what the Department of Education (DepEd) Cebu City Division will focus on for this year’s week-long Brigada Eskwela activity.
DepEd Cebu City Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Danilo Gudelosao said the Brigada Eskwela 2018, or National Schools Maintenance Week, will include activities that will make schools disaster-prepared, community-integrated and ready for the opening of classes on June 4.
“Aside from the usual repair of damages in the classrooms, we have incorporated disaster risk reduction to our plans. We have spread an awareness advocacy with not only our teachers and parents, but with other community stakeholders and government agencies as well,” he told SunStar Cebu.
