    School principal goes viral for plowing school garden during ‘Brigada Eskwela’

    MANILA, Philippines – A school principal recently went viral for his impressive brand of leadership as he led his school’s activities for the ‘Brigada Eskwela’. But unlike most school heads who delegate the physical tasks in making the school ready for the start of classes, he was actually quite hands on and was even photographed plowing the school garden, barefoot!

    Shirley Andales Bagood shared photos of the impressive principal of Anding Agricultural Vocational Technical School – Main Campus of Ramon Magsaysay City in Zamboanga del Sur, southern Philippines, identified as Desiderio Alquizar Logdonio.

    With farming being one of the primary sources of livelihood in the region, Logdonio grew up knowing what to do in a farm. In fact, farming had been one of the reasons why he was able to send his children to school; thus, the principal said he could never turn his back from farming.

    Explaining that he still manages to allot time to do farming activities despite his busy schedule as school head, Logdonio earned the admiration of many netizens. A lot admired the principal for still keeping his feet firmly on the ground, quiet literally in his case, even though he is already a high-ranking figure in the school.

    Barefoot, Logdonio was among those who tended to the school’s garden. It was clear that he was not only doing this for a photoshoot but was really plowing the field. He certainly knows what he is doing in that field, several netizens pointed out.

    The principal also helped fix some broken water lines in the school and carried out other tasks that help prepare the school for the coming opening of classes.

    For his actions, Logdonio inspired a lot of people. But for the principal, it was nothing. He feels that he still is and will always be a farmer, no matter what rank he might achieve in his teaching profession.
