Sterling Bank of Asia joins Brigada Eskwela nationwide Friday, June 16, 2017




Sterling Bank of Asia takes part in the repainting, repair and cleaning of two adopted classrooms in Labangon Elementary School. Volunteers from the bank’s rank and file and its senior officers also donated 100 new armchairs to the school.



IN line with its 10th anniversary, the Sterling Bank of Asia recently took part in the 2017 Brigada Eskwela program by helping refurbish selected schools in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao in time for the start of the school year.


Living up to the principle of banking to a different beat and promoting social responsibility, Sterling Bankers gathered to help in the repairs, repainting and cleaning of adopted classrooms in San Juan National High School in San Juan City, Metro Manila; Labangon Elementary School in Cebu City; and F. Bustamante National High School in Davao City last May 20.


Aside from restoring the five classrooms in San Juan, two classrooms in Cebu and two classrooms in Davao, the bank together with the employees also donated a total of 450 new armchairs to the chosen schools.


Reiterating its unique proposition of being a “Bank with a Heart,” the bank’s President and Chief Executive Officer Cecilio San Pedro said, “This project is a continuance of Sterling Bank of Asia’s dedication to giving back and being a pillar of the community.”


“As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we want to make it more meaningful by expanding our community works that make a difference to the people. We want to underline the bank’s decade of heartfelt service to the community. This is particularly close to my heart as it involves education,” added San Pedro.


One of Sterling Bank of Asia’s recipient schools is San Juan National High School which has a population of over 3,700 and an average of 45 to 50 students to a room. The improvement of five classrooms and the donation of armchairs will help provide an environment that is conducive for learning.


The project of Sterling Bank of Asia is the first partnership of the public high school with a private institution.


According to San Juan National High School principal Lucila Galang Artuyo, such partnerships between public schools and private companies should happen more often.


“We are very grateful to have been a recipient of Sterling Bank of Asia’s volunteerism project. It will make such a difference to the students while they are learning. Private companies like Sterling Bank of Asia are the ones that have the capability to provide what the schools need, and we hope that this continues on for years to come,” said Artuyo.


“Brigada Eskwela is all about community service and stakeholders’ participation. It is not just merely making improvements in the school. And when education of our country’s children is concerned, we are all stakeholders,” Artuyo added.
