More or less 100 Grade 7 students of the Dr. Vicente F. Gustilo Memorial National High School actively participated in the Dalaw Turo, spearheaded by PENRO Negros Occidental.

The Dalaw Turo Team composed of members from PENRO Negros Occidental, CENRO Bago, and CENRO Cadiz, that lined-up activities and lectures regarding environmental protection and conservation.

Dalaw Turo, which comes from two Filipino words that mean “to visit” (dalaw) and “to teach” (turo) is an educational tool for teaching and promoting environmental messages on nature conservation.

“We are all connected to one another,” Dindo Ampalla, Principal IV of DVFGMNHS said. He also emphasized that the students should apply all that they will learn in order to influence their peers, their family and the whole community to take good care of our environment. Science Department Head Ma. Hiyas Viason in her message expressed gratitude to DENR PENRO Negros Occidental and the rest of the Dalaw Turo Team to meet with all the students and motivate them to be better.

A lot of young minds and hearts were opened as they listened to the lecture on the environment and what they can do to encourage others to be good stewards of the Earth. The students were made fully aware of the current status of our environment and encouraged to be eco-warriors in their area. Information materials regarding RA 9003, Anti-burning Law and Protected Areas, were also distributed to their Environment Science Teacher and YES-O Adviser Anacel Recuelo.

Their voices echoed with cheer, laughter and enthusiasm as they joined the environmental games and activities prepared for them. One of the highlights of the program was the commitment signing and responses from the students on what they learned as they pledged to positively impact the community and the environment.*
