Inline with the requirement of the Municipal Government along with the Sagradan core values; love and justice, the Montessori de Sagrada Familia had its very own practice for waste segregation.
The said project was initiated by Sir Joshua Ong upon coming to a meeting with the administrative officer about environmental concerns. “It is a project where students are involved,” Ong said.
Every classroom has its trash bins replaced with indicators (pictures and such) to show what things could be thrown in there. In addition to this, every department (Preschool, Elementary, and High school) has big trash cans placed on every gate separating the biodegradable and non-biodegradable things.
These trash cans have different colors to indicate the kind of waste they should put in. The color blue is for bottles and cans while the green one is for papers like newspapers, used papers, magazines and even paper used for packaging and lastly, the yellow trash can is for organic waste.
The main goal of the said activity is to promote love for the environment and to raise awareness of the right practice of throwing garbage in the community.
This project is just the start for the students to take good care for the environment.
