With the aim to promote awareness on the importance of caring for the environment and its natural resources, faculty and student of Saint Bridget College (SBC) conducted a tree planting activity at old Tingga dumpsite, Aug. 15.
Two Hundred fifty (250) students from grades one to six participated in the said activity. They planted 150 Mahogony trees provided by Batangas City local government in cooperation with ng City Environment and Natural Resources Office or CENRO.
According to Ms. Lina Hernandez, SBC Science teacher, they have been conducting this activity for six times now. She also added that tree-planting promotes advocacy of environmental concerns, particularly the value of trees — their role in global warming and flood control, awareness of greening and beautification of community surroundings.
Meanwhile, SBC family also encourages other children and youth to participate and support this project. They believe that children at an early age should be taught on how to care and protect the environment for the betterment of our home called Earth.[tags]Tree planting, tree, Mahogany, Saint Bridget college, SBC, Saint, Batangas City, Batangas, CENRO, Environment and Matural resources, Philippines[/tags]
