Daily efforts is recognized by the government
SMK Plus Alfarhan High School is located at the foot of Mt. Gede Pangrango. Most of the people are engaged in agriculture in this area. They lost their forest which has water retaining function & biodiversity because of over cultivation of the land. In 2015, there, they started the CFP to recover the rich forest and educate children to be environment friendly.
In 2017, they planted 506 fruits and native trees such as guava, Barringtonia asiaticas, and seedlings of local species. Local CFP coordinator is very active; they have tried many activities such as taking care of seedlings and separating garbage without OISCA-staff.
The school teacher has understood CFP, so that they spare the environmental class time to CFP activities. Students and teachers have regularly carried out the activities, therefore their environmental awareness has been growing. Being successful in such daily efforts, they were awarded the environmental prize at the national level.
Their success in CFP activities have become an inspiration to other schools for promoting environmental activities. We should pay attention to this school’s future activities.
