FEU High School goes sustainable

Far Eastern University High School’s Community Engagement and Extension Services has inked a Memorandum of Understanding with partner communities to enhance its sustainable goals.

The student-centered educational institution for Junior and Senior High of the FEU joins hands with World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines, Gawad Kalinga Paradise Heights, Barangay 128, Bridge Builder Foundation Norway Inc. and Apolinario Mabini Elementary School for joint research, lectures, seminars, workshops and other initiatives and programs. This aims to provide students with out-of-school practical experiences while offering beneficiary communities livelihood skills, education access and environmental stewardship.

“We want students to learn beyond classrooms, understand real-world issues and contribute to societal solutions through experiential learning. We are beyond grateful to our partner communities as we share the goal of promoting sustainability for both people and the environment,” FEU High School CEES chairperson Renan Agad said.

WWF-Philippines will lead discussions on environmental stewardship which will be integrated in FEU High School’s curriculum.

“The approach to learning in schools has undergone a transformation, with sustainable development being integrated into the school curriculum. We are thrilled with this collaboration with FEU High School and other partner communities to achieve holistic sustainable development, inspiring and empowering the youth to contribute to the community meaningfully,” WWF-Philippines Education for Sustainable Development Unit head Dino Leoncarlo Calderon said.

In partnership with Bridge Builder Foundation Norway Inc., WWF-Philippines will launch The OASIS Project, aimed at improving the holistic well-being of street children and families. It offers students a comprehensive socio-civic experience through workshops in various performing arts disciplines.

Project TUDLO (Tamaraw United in Developing Learning Opportunities), in collaboration with FEU HS’s Academic Affairs Office, supports Grade 6 public school pupils’ academic development through intensive tutorial sessions in Mathematics, Science, English and Filipino.
