ICI-Iligan AHS Students spearhead Cleanliness Drive

AHS Students presentation

 

Schools are not only a venue for knowledge, but also play a major role in shaping students personality as an individual.  Student’s learning is not just confined to the four walls of a classroom but the whole school environment affects the learning process. Apart from theories, a student learns lessons of discipline, honesty and cleanliness in school and therefore, it is important for a school to maintain a hygienic atmosphere.  The Allied Healthcare Services students are tasked to conduct a room to room session on practicing Cleanliness and Hygiene for a Healthy Life.

Ms. Love Joy Soriano and Drixine Baliguat led and motivated the AHS students in facilitating the session on February 9, 2018, at ICI-Iligan campuses.  The orientation teaches about the waste segregation in the school.  Waste segregation goes down to waste management. Waste management is the process of disposing, processing, recycling and refining waste materials. It ultimately promotes to Zero Waste Management. Zero waste is about significantly reducing, and eventually completely eliminating, the amount of stuff that people send to disposal therefore, recycling of materials occurs. “Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. The goal is for no trash to be sent to landfills or incinerators. The process recommended is one similar to the way that resources are reused in nature.”

Students are not only be aware but practically be involved in the management where their personal hygiene and environment are concerned. Change starts from us — from ourselves, our home, our community, our school.
