SAN ANDRES, Catanduanes, Feb. 16 (PIA) -- Girl Scouts from the San Andres Vocational School (SAVS) participated in helping in greening the environment through a tree planting activity on February 4, 2012 at 8:00 a.m.
The said activity was undertaken as part of the Girl Scouting Program and SAVS’ Green Surroundings Program.
The former is an action plan covering the whole Girl Scouting environment of fun, adventure, and challenges where girls working alone or in small groups live the Girl Scout Promise (GSP) and develop themselves in self-reliance, self-esteem, and service with the guidance of able and caring adults.
This is also under the eight-point challenge of GSP which is the Challenge of Environment stating that protection and conservation of the natural resources is very important local and global issue.
On the other hand, the school’s greening program is in support of the nationwide endeavor to protect and preserve the environment.
The tree planting coincides with the yes-o camp wherein aside from GSP members, students of SAVS and faculty members of the school were able to participate in the activity. (MAL/EAB-PIA Catanduanes)
