All Others Concerned
1. The Department of Education (DepEd) launches the Project entitled DepEd’s 236,000 Trees – A Christmas Gift for the Children. This is an initiative that aims to promote environmental preservation and instill environmental responsibility among Filipino children. The project will simultaneously plant over 236,000 trees in different parts of the country, with the participation of DepEd 47,678 public schools. This project serves as a gift from the Department to ensure a clean and green environment for Filipino children and future generations.
2. The project provides a unique educational opportunity for students to actively participate in tree planting activities, fostering a deeper understanding of environmental issues and promoting conservation efforts. Through hands-on learning and practical application of environmental concepts, students will develop a strong sense of responsibility towards the environment.
3. In addition to the educational benefits, planting trees will contribute to the beautification of school grounds. Trees provide shade, improve air quality, and create a calming atmosphere, enhancing the overall ambience of the school and creating a more pleasant and conducive learning environment for students.
4. Furthermore, planting trees has numerous health benefits. Trees absorb harmful pollutants from the air and release oxygen, leading to improved air quality. This creates a healthier environment for students, teachers, and staff, reducing the risk of respiratory diseases and promoting overall well-being.
5. The enclosed guidelines have been established to ensure the successful implementation of DepEd’s 236,000 Tree&- A Christmas Gift for the Children.
