‘Sacrifice for the greater good’

By: Tara Yap

ILONGGOS should understand what it means to sacrifice for others as the Lenten season crescendos this Holy Week.

This is the reminder of Archbishop Angel Lagdameo to the Roman Catholic laity in Iloilo.

Lagdameo urged the faithful to emulate Jesus Christ, who sacrificed himself to save sinners.

“We fasted, we sacrificed. We should do this to help others who are less fortunate or those who need help,” Lagdameo said in a message that was largely delivered in Hiligaynon.

THE DEPARTMENT of Education (DepED) in Region 6 will conduct a two-day conference-workshop on the revised criteria for the selection of Brigada Eskwela Best School Implementors from April 25 to 26 in this city.

Dr. Eden Deriada said the activity will be participated by some 150 Adopt-A-School Program/Brigada Eskwela coordinators, selected elementary and secondary school principals, and district supervisors from the 18 divisions of the region.

Aside from updates on the revised criteria, Deriada said the activity will provide a venue to ask and hear the experiences and best practices of participants in implementing the program in their respective schools.

Since 2004, the DepEd has been recognizing the Brigada Eskwela Best Implementors through the Adopt-A- School program.

The ASP Secretariat has revised the criteria as a result of the consultation meeting with the ASP Regional Coordinators in November last year at Cebu City and as part of its effort to further improve the selection process, according to a DepEd press report.

The revised criteria will be implemented this school year 2012-2013.

In a national awarding held last year, two schools from the region were recognized as Brigada Eskwela Hall of Fame awardees after they were chosen as Best School Implementors in the region for three consecutive years. These are the Minuyan Elementary School of Murcia in Negros Occidental and Maayon National High School in Maayon, Capiz.

Brigada Eskwela, also known as the National Schools Maintenance, ensures that public schools in the country are ready for the opening of school year in June through the support and cooperation of all education stakeholders both from the private and public sectors. This year, it will be held from May 21 to 26.

EASTER SUNDAY (Year A)

Gospel reading: John 20,1-9

WE SEE opposing representations of women in the Bible. In the Old Testament they are sometimes considered as subordinate to men and as enjoying an inferior legal position (cf. Gen 12:12-20; 20:2; 19:8; Jgs 19:24-27; etc.), while in other passages they are presented as having high social position and dignity. Read more...
