Gawad Bayanihan names 2019 Best Schools for Brigada Eskwela

December 11, 2019 – DepEd Dasmarinas awards this year’s Gawad Bayanihan to schools with the best implementation of Brigada Eskwela.

A week-long nationwide preparation of schools for the safe and ready opening of SY 2019-2020 was held on May 20-25, 2019 which has been a tradition of converging people from different walks of life to contribute in the beginning of another year of strengthening education for all.

After the spectacular  Bayanihan witnessed nationwide during Brigada Eskwela, schools in the Division with the most improved facilities, converged supports, and rallied volunteers were identified and named as Best Implementers for this annual search.

In the awarding ceremony of Gawad Bayanihan last December 11, 2019 at Bayleaf Hotel – Cavite, SDS Balderas, SGOD Chief Resurreccion, and CID Chief Cortez presented the Plaques of Recognition to 12 Schools who made it to the Top 3 in 4 School Categories. Each school received their award with the presence of its stirring team headed by the School Principal, ASP Coordinator and Brigada Eskwela Focal Person, GPTA President, and Barangay Chairman who also received an individual recognition as DepEd Dasma’s way of expressing its great appreciation to each of them.

The following are this year’s Schools with the Best Brigada Eskwela Implementation:

Elementary – Medium School Category

First Place – New Era Elementary School

Second Place – Piela Elementary School

Third Place – Burol Elementary School

First Place – Ramona S. Tirona Memorial School

During the ASP Appreciation Night held last December 9, 2019 at Hotel Dominique, Chief Resurreccion expressed his high hopes that Dasmariñas will make its way again to the regional level of the search. He also warned the schools of the possible conflicts that may arise as Philippine Statistics Authority will be holding a National Census of Population for 2020 which is usually held on May that coincides with Brigada Eskwela. Nevertheless, Social Mobilization and Networking Unit are planning ahead on some strategies to acclimate with the possible considerations due to PSA activity.
