The Green Meadow School won first place in IT&E’s Phonebook Roundup Recycling Contest.
Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality administrator Frank Rabauliman and Environment Awareness Month chair Jonathan Arriola awarded Green Meadow School last June 15, 2017, the certificate for winning first place in the contest.
GMS also received $2,000 from IT&E as part of its prize.
GMS student council officers headed the collection of old phonebooks. Through the effort of the whole GMS family, parents, friends from Gualo Rai and Chalan Kiya, the school got the highest number collection of old phonebooks.
The whole GMS family wishes to thank IT&E and the organizers of the contest for coming up with this recycling contest. This event also helped the community be aware of how important recycling is.
Part of the prize was allotted to help fund the trip of GMS participant Jill Anne Marie Mallari and her coach, sixth-grade teacher Lorelisa Espiritu, to the National Junior Speech and Debate Association competition that will be held in Alabama.
It will also be used to purchase playground equipment for its preschool and daycare at Chalan Kiya. (PR)
