DepEd San Juan weighed in on Tree Planting activity

"Magtatanim tayo para sa MATATAG na Kinabukasan," a tagline promoted by the Department of Education for the 236K Trees project which public schools in San Juan City participated in last December 6, 2023, in different locations within the city.

Selected teachers, teachers, and SDO officials from San Juan actively joined the opening ceremony and planted their trees as part of the movement given by the Department.

A total of 236,000 trees are expected to be planted by 47,678 public schools nationwide.  This project encourages conservation efforts and develops a deeper awareness of today's environmental challenges.

Each school must plant at least five fruit-bearing trees on their respective school grounds and may find alternatives in local parks, marine protected areas, or any open space near schools.

The San Juan City Integrated School hosted the event for the Pedro Cruz Elementary School (PCES) and San Juan City Senior High School (Academic Strand). They provided enough space where these two other public schools can plant their trees.

PCES was led by their school head together with several faculty members, the Supreme Elementary Learner Government (SELG) Officers, and the Youth for Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O) volunteered to take part in the said project and planted 11 fruit-bearing trees that were donated by the barangay and other stakeholders.

Pinaglabanan Elementary School, Salapan Integrated School, and Kabayanan Integrated School also conducted the same event in their respective school grounds.
