Aiming to promote environmental awareness among students and school personnel, Arbor Day was celebrated last June 22 in the Philippine Science High School – Bicol Region Campus in Goa, Camarines Sur.
Headed by Dr. Miguel M. Lavadia, the Earth Savers club adviser with Ms. Maria Feliciana Benita M. Eloreta, selected members of the Earth Savers club and some advisers, participated in the tree planting activity conducted that day.
Immediately after classes, the students involved were oriented by Ms. Eloreta and Hanna Joy M. Cababan, president of the Earth Savers club. They proceeded to the tree planting areas after being given the instructions.
The tree planting spots were located at the back of the Academic Building 2, the right side of the Auditorium, and the front / side of the Girls’ Dormitory. They were assisted by the school’s utility personnel.
To avoid consuming too much time, the utility personnel already dug holes and prepared the tree seedlings for the students to place in the ground. Then, the students started planting as soon as they arrived at the areas.
The plants were provided by the graduates of Batch 2012. Members of the II-Ilang-ilang class brought pails and were tasked to water the plants every Wednesday afternoon.
The Earth Savers club members hope to have more environmental activities this year in order to help promote stewardship to Mother Earth.
