In with line with the celebration of Nutrition Month, Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) students conducted storytelling sessions for preschoolers, July 26.
Senior High School students of Grades 11 and 12 were the storytellers while reading their own compositions to enthusiastic preschoolers.
In a statement, Mrs. Lalaine L. Mañosca, SHS teacher, said that “The HUMSS strand, both grades 11 and 12, did a very good job in coming up with fun stories about the value of eating fruits and vegetables at an early age in celebration of the Nutrition Month. They channeled all their efforts in thinking of ways to grab the early learners’ attention by creating visual aids that are very colorful and quirky.”
“As a result, the kids had so much enjoyment and learning. They enjoyed the companies of their kuyas and ates just as their kuyas and ates enjoyed their encounter with them too!” she added.
This is an opportune time to remind the young generation about the importance of taking good care of one’s body through the art of storytelling. Preschoolers had the chance to learn the value of eating nutritious foods, taking care of oneself, and having healthy lifestyle at an early age.
According to Vrent Garcia, a Grade 11 student, “Teaching my fellow Sagradan pupils that nutrition is paramount at a very young age is a fun and lofty experience.”
This year’s Nutrition Month Celebration with the theme “Healthy Diet, Gawing Habit- For Life” aims to promote healthy diets to contribute to the reduction of overweight, obesity and non-communicable diseases. It also teaches the public on how to better discern between healthy and unhealthy foods for better food choices.
To cap off the storytelling, students and participants posed for a photo opportunity.
