Australia helps promote quality education in BARMM

Australian Ambassador Steven Robinson announced on Friday his country’s willingness to continue helping promote quality education in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

BARMM Education Minister Mohagher Iqbal and Robinson led on Friday an activity for the “Brigada Eskwela” in Kurintem Elementary School in Datu Odin, Maguindanao.

The “Brigada Eskwela” is the “National Schools Maintenance Week,” that aims to bring together all education stakeholders to participate and contribute their time, effort, and resources to prepare public school facilities for the opening of the school year in June.

Robinson told media men that education is one good solution to underdevelopment as “it is the key to peace and prosperity.” 

As part of the “Brigada Eskwela” activity, Robinson and Iqbal distributed paints for chairs and classrooms, and school supplies to the Kurintem Elementary School.
