Recycling activities enriching imagination

 

 

 This school is located on Palawan Island, Southwestern part of the Philippines. It is along the highway, but the beautiful sea is nearby. Around the school which joined CFP in 1997, there are growing trees planted by school children. Some years ago, they experienced floods due to heavy rains, but the grown trees mitigated the disaster damage.

 In 2016, they planted Mahogany trees, suited to the soil of the area and familiar to school children. They learned how to love and take care of the trees they planted. Also, they have tackled making handcrafts utilizing trash to learn recycling. The school teachers said: “Recycling is good for the students. It really changes their insight and attitude. We could see their perseverance and interest in one activity.”
