Greener is Better - OLOPSC Preschool Environmental Awareness Campaign
By: Mrs. Odylane Norma V. Uy
It was a wonderful day to the Preschool Department last June 29, 2018 to celebrate the Environmental Month. Pupils, teachers and parents from the Preschool Department supported the event by wearing something green.
The pupils went to Preschool Building and showed everyone their love for Mother Earth by doing a flash mob. After the flash mob, the Mother Earth’s Best Friend for the month of June was awarded to Kinder 2 Cherished and Courteous. The award was received by their class adviser, Miss Krista Marie Ferrer.
To continue with the celebration, the parents were invited to the DS Hall to attend a short talk regarding Solid Waste and other Environmental Programs of Marikina City. The talk was headed by Mr. Carlos Pangilinan, a representative from CEMO (City Environmental Management Office).
While parents were at the DS Hall, the pupils were gathered around the Preschool Garden of Love to witness its opening, Mr. Arestophanes C. Salvador Sr., VP for Administrative Affairs and head of the OLOPSC Environmental Management Team, together with Mrs. Rose Editha Flores, VP for Institutional Affairs, led the ribbon cutting, planting of sitaw seeds and recycling of old bottle caps.
To let the pupils learn more about saving our planet Earth, the class advisers prepared activities in their respective classrooms. They were taught how to segregate, and create eco brick plastic bottles. The eco brick plastic bottles made by the pupils were brought home for them to finish. All the bottles filled with plastic will be brought to school every 28 th of the month for CEMO to collect.
