Governor Joseph Cua, in his message as guest speaker in the DepEd-Divison of Catanduanes 2017 Gawad Parangal for Best Implementing Schools and Stakeholders, highlighted the importance of Brigada Eskwela as a personification of unity and an evident proof of Bayanihan.

He added that Brigada Eskwela is a manifestation of how we give importance to our schools which is a very vital place for the students’ learning and development.

The local chief executive of the province assured his never-ending support for this advocacy in providing quality education for the Catandunganon youth.

“Padagos an sakuyang pagtao nin tabang sa saindong mga eskwelahan prayormente sa mga kaakian, huli ta sakong prayoridad an mataw-an nin malinas na edukasyon an lambang aki digdi sa satuyang probinsiya” he said.

He reiterated the importance of camaraderie as he asks for the cooperation of everyone in this shared commitment of the community to the schools. He further said, if we are willing, we can become a part of the change we want to see for the youth, and for this Happy Island.

Gov. Cua was joined by Vice Governor Shirley Abundo, who expressed the Office of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan’s undying support for the education sector in Catanduanes.

Samuel Laynes, the municipal mayor of Virac, said in his speech that Brigada Eskwela shows that volunteerism is still abundant in our country and that there are a lot of people who are willing to cooperate with the government’s work endeavors if given the chance.
