IN its bid to advance business and communities, AboitizPower subsidiary Therma South, Inc. (TSI) amped up its annual Brigada Eskwela with First Aid and Fire Safety awareness trainings for teachers, parents, and students of Inawayan Elementary School (IES) last 28 May 2018. 

Nearly 90 TSI team members joined the nationwide activity initiated by the Department of Education to improve schools around the country. 

TSI in partnership with Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. conducted several activities for IES including the construction of pathways, first aid training, fire safety and awareness training, installation of medicine kits and fire extinguishers, and distribution of fire safety-related coloring books.

“The pathway construction alone is already a big help to us. It gets really muddy here when it rains, it even came to the point that the kids would rather not go to school because of the mud. But TSI went beyond just making pathways, they even gave us fire extinguishers and medicine kits and taught us how to use them properly,” said Inawayan Elementary School Principal Reziel Francisco.

For the 5th consecutive year, TSI has participated in this annual school maintenance drive by going beyond the usual painting works and campus clean up.  In 2017, TSI volunteers constructed a perimeter fence around Sirawan National High School..

We will go the extra mile in hopes that we can build a better and safer foundation for students in our bid to drive change for a better world,” said TSI Vice President and Plant Manager Valentin S. Saludes III.
