School forest is inherited by students
St Joseph Napapar Primary School is located in East New Britain Province.
Around the school, deforestation, flood and landslide occurred due to expanding plantation. In regard to the problems, teachers thought what they should do for solving the problems and inspected CFP activity of other schools. Ultimately teachers consulted with OISCA staffs and they have started CFP activities.
Since 2012, they have continued to manage the trees which seniors planted.
They planted fruit bearing trees such as mangosteen and soursop in 2017.
By growing fruit bearing species, they would be able to eat as snack and can sell fruits to earn income for school.
They will continue the management of the tree planting site and will be tackling waste separation.
