Green School is Cool

In a 2003 United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report titled, “The State of the World’s Forests”, the Philippines’ rate of deforestation was at 1.4% annually from 1990 to 2000. In 2011, then Pres. Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III signed Executive Order no. 26 more commonly known as the “National Greening Program” or (NGP).

The primary task of the program comes with the associated mandate of national struggle against poverty, food insecurity, environment instability and biodiversity loss, and climate change problem. It mandates Department of Natural Resources (DENR) as the lead agency in cooperation with the Department of Education (DepEd) and other partner agencies to grow 1.5 billion trees covering about 1.5 million hectares of public lands nationwide within a span of six years, from 2011 to 2016.

As an active purveyor of change, the Department of Education has issued DepED Order no. 5, s. 2014 mandating all public schools throughout the country to integrate the “Gulayan sa Paaralan”, ecological solid waste management, and tree growing and caring as key components to attain the goals of DepEd on poverty reduction, food security, biodiversity conservation, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

As part of the Public Schools System, San Vicente National High School has created different programs and projects adhering to the goals and objective of NGP like Zero Waste Management, 10 o’clock and 3 o’clock habit, school beautification program, and Gulayan sa Paaralan. Under these projects, the school principal, Cristeta S. Uy together with the School Based Management team, the assistance of our stakeholders, and participation of the students had adapted the 7 steps to green school program namely:

1. Establish A Green Team or Eco-Committee. The Green Team is the heart of the Green Schools process, both organizing and directing activities at the school.

2. Adopt An Environmental Vision Statement or Planet Pledge. Each school produces its own vision statement, planning out what the students and/or school community are striving to achieve.

3. Conduct A School Environmental Survey or Audit. To identify priorities for action, begin with conducting a review of your school’s environmental impact.

4. Create A Green School Action Plan. Use the results of your environmental survey or audit to identify priorities of the key areas where you want to make change and create an action plan.

5. Monitor and Evaluate Progress. The Green Team, students, or other school community members can assist with monitoring and evaluating progress on the priorities in the action plan.

6. Integrate Greening into the Curriculum. Greening activities can be integrated into existing curricula in science, art, humanities, math, language arts, or electives. Using the school as a hands-on laboratory offers opportunities for real-world problem-solving.

7. Inform, Involve, and Celebrate! Recognizing, celebrating, and communicating about achievements are critical components of a Green School!

Under these 7 steps San Vicente National High School will never be out of the line in contributing and helping the government in their own little ways what is expected from them. The school may believe they are too far from their target but at least slowly they are working harmoniously as a family to achieve it.
