All students can agree: nobody likes going to the principal’s office.
But at the Hinabuyan Elementary School in Dagami, Leyte, the principal’s office became something of a refuge for 11-year-old Grade 3 student Alexis and his brothers, 4-year-old AJ and 9-year-old Aljur.
When the school head, Geraldine Nical, learned that the three would need to walk for over two hours just to get to school, she decided to let the kids live in her office.
"Naaawa ako sa bata, in the sense na kahit ganyan siya, nagsisikap pa rin siya na mag-aral. Matalino rin si Alexis. Kaya napagdesisyunan namin na tulungan siya," Nical said.

At night, the brothers would spread a donated cushion on the floor where they would sleep. In the mornings, Alexis would get ready in the comfort room, where he also does their laundry. The school canteen turns into their kitchen, where they prepare their lunch; their leftovers become their dinner.
According to Alexis, their mother Luna left them at the care of their stepdad five months ago when she, along with Alexis’ two other siblings, went to Manila to look for work.
But when they couldn’t get along with their stepfather, Alexis and his brothers decided to inch their way out. Being the eldest among the three, he vowed to protect his younger siblings, even if their future is uncertain.

"Aalagaan ko sila hanggang tumanda na ako. Hindi ko sila iiwan dahil mahal ko sila," said Alexis.
Last week, Alexis’ story went viral which prompted kind hearts to send help to the struggling family. One donor paid for Luna and her sons’ fare back home — which completely took Alexis, Aljur, and AJ by surprise. Another sponsored for them a plot of land where they can build their house, and still another, capital for a sari-sari store.
