TCES orchestrates community outreach program

  • April 20, 2017

BUTUAN CITY, Apr. 20 (PIA) - In allowing the young individuals to explore various volunteer opportunities and learn more about the community, the Tungao Central Elementary School (TCES) responded to this call by immersing the pupils and teachers to take part on the community outreach program through community clean-up drive recently.


The outreach program is one of the best ways to gain better understanding on the current situations of a certain community . This gives pupils the opportunity to get involved in community service with regard to environmental issues and concerns which the community is facing.


Roldan Alanano, SPG adviser gave a short orientation to the participants on the dos and don’ts while having the clean-up drive.  He reminded them not to stay away from the group and heve to ask their adviser for their personal concerns in order to avoid untoward incidents.  They brought cleaning materials such as brooms, gloves, socks and cellophanes.  The wastes they collected were segregated and placed those that can be sold to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF).


It was participated by the grades-IV to VI pupils with their advisers, councilor Ann Margaret Alim, general parents-teachers association (GPTA) officers and parents.


On the other hand, the grades-I to III pupils had their institutional clean-up drive within the school premises on the same date.  This is to raise the level of awareness on the importance of maintaining cleanliness of the surroundings.


The community engagement helps promote self-sufficiency and community belonging through neighborhood environmental services that aims to navigate to the people living in the community to take an active part in the conservation and protection of the environment.
