The SMILE Learners are experiencing the fun and excitement of the playground in the Cleanergy Park after the mangrove planting and educational tour activity.
Davao Light and Power Co. brought around 200 grade school students from the St. Mary's Initial Learning Experience (SMILE) to the Cleanergy Park at Punta Dumalag, Matina Aplaya, Davao City last February 19, 22 and 23.Accompanied by their parents, the pupils who came in 8 batches toured the various amenities of the Cleanergy Park that included the Automated Weather Station and Learning Center, Nursery Botanical Garden, Pawikan Sanctuary Viewdeck, Mangrove Boardwalk and the best place forkids - the holding area or the playground.The young ones with the help of their parents and teachers also planted mangrove seedlings along the seashore.“We always believe that learning does not only happen inside the classroom and that experience is still the best teacher. By visiting the Cleanergy Park, our younger learners will have more appreciation in the environment and in wildlife conservation. They also got a chance to help Mother Nature by planting mangrove seedlings by themselves.” shared Teacher Krispy Arenga, SMILE Kinder Adviser and Coordinator of Student Activities.“Everyone is welcome to visit the Cleanergy Park. This is also an avenue for us to educate the people, most especially the kids, on the importance of preserving the pawikans and its habitat.” said Fermin Edillon, Davao Light's Community Relations Manager.Should you want to schedule a visit at the Cleanergy Park, kindly contact Davao Light's Reputation Enhancement Dept. at 229-3572.
