A team from the Faculty of Management and Development Studies (FMDS) visited the UPOU Earth Ambassadors in Dayap Elementary School on February 2, 2011. The visit was part of sustaining the advocacy of FMDS in helping promote awareness on environmental conservation and management.
The UPOU Earth Ambassadors set-up the Kamalayang Kalikasan Board (KKBoard), a bulletin board of the UPOU Earth Ambassadors, to reach out to the other students in the school about how they can also be part of taking care of the environment. The FMDS team helped in designing the overall layout of the KKBoard to have a uniform look with the KKBoards in UPOU and in the two other schools of UPOU Earth Ambassadors, the Sto. Domingo Elementary School and The Learning Place.
The team also visited the tree planting site in Dayap Elementary School. The seedlings that were planted just last November 2010 show promises that they will thrive and flourish. According to Mrs. Sahara Teresa Cruz, one of the advisers of the UPOU Earth Ambassadors, the students were quite enthusiastic about their roles as Earth Ambassadors and they really took time to nurture the seedlings they have planted.
The team also took the opportunity to invite the UPOU Earth Ambassadors to be part of the UPOU’s launching of the International Year of Forests which is part of the 16th Anniversary Celebration of the UPOU.
