MANILA, Philippines - Armed with brooms, rags, brushes and pails, employees of the Kapatid Network trooped to the Bagong Silangan Elementary School in Quezon City over the weekend to help spruce up the school ahead of start of the new school year in June.

The Brigada Eskwela activity was organized by News 5 Aksyon Center, the public service arm of the Kapatid Network, in cooperation with the Philippine Business for Social Progress.

News 5 correspondent Erel Cabatbat said joining the Birgada Eskwela was a "way of giving back" to the people who have helped make the Kapatid Network the fastest growing star in Philippine media.

Fritzie Cabial, News 5 correspondent, recalled how she would cover Brigada Eskwela cleanups in the past, "pero iba pala yung feeling na ikaw mismo ang tumutulong (but the feeling is really different if you are the one helping out)..."

Even network executives, like Broadcast Operations head Atty. Dan Padua, and head of news operations, DJ Sta. Ana, turned out to help dust desks, polish floors and scrub classroom walls.

"Ang Kapatid Network ay hindi lamang nagpapasaya, kundi tumutulong din (The Kapatid Network does not only entertain, it also helps)," Leo Gellor, head of employee relations, said.

Sherryl Yao, News 5 head of public service, thanked the "desk editors, reporters, cameramen, as well as the management of TV5, who sacrificed their day off to help Brigada Eskwela."
