Service Learning aims to apply the knowledge and skills that children learn at school in order to help other people. This school year, Grade 2 decided to help pediatric ward of Philippine General Hospital, in line with their lessons on government, public service (i.e., government hospital), buying and selling goods and services in Social Studies, as well as recycling which they discussed in Science. Both 2MP and 2ML thought that they could cheer up and keep the children patients busy during their hospital stay by sending activity kits (i.e., art materials, activity sheets).
In order to raise funds, Grade 2 planned for a fundraising fair along with Grades 1 and 3. Grade 2MP recycled materials for the games Knock ‘Em Down and Shoot ‘Em In. They also discussed the rules, specific jobs as well as the schedule.
On May 24th, everyone was so excited! The school community participated at the FUNdraising Fair by buying, playing games and assisting in every way they could. It was a HUGE success!!! Thank you, dear parents, teachers, staff and students for being a part of our Service Learning project! Till next school year! (More photos at the Gallery, thanks to a parent!)
