24 Aug Kalusugan at Kalikasan Pangalagaan
By: Ms. Sandra Santiago
Last July 27, 2018, the Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade One (PK1) students
celebrated the environment and nutrition month with an activity entitled, Kalusugan at
Kalikasan Pangalagaan. As a preliminary activity, the students watched a video prepared by
some teachers. The video highlighted the importance of throwing their trash properly and
waste segregation. The video also showcased the school's Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where all the trash are stored and sorted before disposal.
The actual day of the celebration was filled with activities that the students enjoyed.
Everyone came to school in their healthy food costumes. The celebration started with a solemn
prayer led by selected PK1 students. After the prayer, the activity was introduced by our very
own area supervisor, Teacher Lizelle Salvan. The students sang and danced to different songs
about taking care of the Earth. There was also an interactive skit that was performed by
selected students and teachers about keeping one's body strong and healthy by eating grow, glow and go food, keeping oneself clean, and exercising. A demonstration of healthy food
preparation by the Grade School TLE teachers, Mrs. Lina Tiburcio and Ms. Grace Flores,
captured the attention of the PK1 students as they showed how to prepare pesto pasta.
Selected students were called on stage to help in the preparation.
The fun continued in the students' respective classrooms. They had a show and tell
activity about their healthy food costumes. To close the day, the students had a chance to
reflect on and share their own takeaway from the activity. The PK1 students went home
with tummies filled with healthy food and minds filled with new experiences and learning.
