Muntinlupa Teachers Trained on Environmental Education
05 September 2016

PTC-CSJ Foundation and WWF-Philippines have entered into a partnership project on environmental education (EE) that mainly aimed to increase the knowledge and awareness of school administrators and faculty on climate change, biodiversity conservation, energy and sustainable lifestyle.

The EE Project’s beneficiaries are the Foundation’s three partner-Schools in Muntinlupa: Bayanan Elementary School-Main (BESM), Lakeview Elementary School (LES) and Sucat Elementary School-Main (SESM).

The EE Project involved two activities – one-day training for teachers and half-day demo teaching sessions per school.

A total of 125 teachers participated in the training conducted by WWF on June 2, 2016.  The training employed various methodologies such as lectures, games, video shows, and group workshops.

At the end of the training, WWF distributed manuals and other teaching aids on the environment which the teachers could use in their classroom instruction and other activities.

On the other hand, the demo teaching was conducted by five teachers per school on Aug. 24-25.  WWF and PTC-CSJ’s Executive Director, Ms. Flory A. Tabio, observed the demo sessions together with Science Heads/Coordinators and Master Teachers from other Muntinlupa public elementary schools.

DepEd-Muntinlupa Schools Division Office, upon learning of the demo teaching sessions, decided to adopt it as a division-wide activity, thus the participation of the other schools as observers.

In general, the demo teachers were able to effectively integrate environmental concepts in their respective subjects such as Math, English, Pilipino, Science, etc.

WWF is the world’s largest and most experienced conservation organization operating in over 100 countries.  WWF-Philippines has been a national organization of the WWF network since 1997.
