Just joined CFP !
The school is located in a mountainous community that has a famous water rafting spot. It joined CFP just in March 2017. The principal of another CFP participating school moved to this school and requested OISCA for starting CFP activities. In the first activity, they planted 65 seedlings of mainly fruit-bearing trees such as Pomelo, Mangosteen and Langsat. The children are looking forward to seeing that the seedlings they planted would bear fruits. Grasecencelly Pilineus, 12-years old students, said that she was very happy in the actual tree planting activity because it was her first time to do it.
She planted one seedling with her best friend. The school principal said: “The people here don’t have a habit of planting trees and tend to think tree planting as an event. We would like to develop it as a program in which the school children are continually involved including the maintenance of seedlings. Also, we want the children to realize the importance of proper waste management. The community is facing a problem of garbage left along the riverbanks, playground of the children.”
