“We wholeheartedly thank you for this bayanihan (teamwork) effort you’ve shown,” said Mrs. Brigette Alay, school coordinator of Bangad National High School.
She expressed gratitude to the members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) from the Local Congregation of Bangad, Ecclesiastical District of Kalinga as they conducted a cleanup activity in the school grounds on September 25, 2021.
While observing health and safety protocols, the brethren used their broomsticks, dust pans, and gardening tools such as pruning and sickle knives to get rid of the weeds, dried plants, and perennial grass that have surrounded the school during the pandemic.
“It is truly a great help to us that, whenever the face-to-face classes would start, the school is ready,” Mrs. Alay further said. In the Philippines, conducting of face-to-face classes in public schools is set to begin in select localities.
The Local Congregation of Bangad is one of the 17 local congregations the Ecclesiastical District of Kalinga supervises. It is approximately 60 kilometers distant from the district office located in Tabuk City, the capital of the province. — With reports from INC News Section
