Malnutrition among the public school children is one of the causes of their low level of academic performance in school. It can be well attributed to the poor economic conditions of the family. The Department of Agriculture, in partnership with the Department of Education aims to address, at least to a certain degree, the problems of malnutrition by launching the “Gulayan sa Paaralan Program.”  The program seeks to promote the production of vegetables in public elementary and high school through the maintenance of school garden around the school in order to provide a sustainable source of vegetable which they will use in feeding program.

The “Gulayan sa Paaralan Program” is an all-encompassing project because other than addressing malnutrition among school children, it also instills the values of eating healthy food through the supplementary feeding program of the DepEd and the necessity of engaging in agriculture by teaching the students to plant and grow for themselves the vegetables so that they can also replicate it at home for the family’s food sustainability. With these, the students likewise learn the importance of work and/or industry and the need to take care of the environment and other natural resources.

Further, the program may not only be a source of food but of income as well by selling the excess or devote the entire harvest to the market. Proceeds of the sales can be used to finance other food and nutritional undertaking of the school for the benefits of the students.

This program has become an avenue to relive the spirit of “bayanihan” as the government, the school, the parents and students have to work together in implementing the program and eventually achieve the goals and its visions to address the nutritional needs of the students and at the same time maintain harmonious relationship in the community.

And it's you, (writer with no name) not her, who "virtually hurled a challenge..." I'm not a professional photographer but I know a lot about it. If this was supposed to be a sunset, where is the sun? If you called it "cogon grass with flowers" that would have been more appropriate. If the picture was enhanced, it was overdone and unrealistic.

  • Theanna: Thanks Judge for that timely and alarming info on the country's postal service. I thought that by now, things are much better than when I was there. May I add a few cents worth of fond remembrance of the late fabulous Fr. James Reuter, SJ? I never met him but my brothers and male relatives were all Ateneans and Fr.Reuter's name was often mentioned at our house. When I heard that Roxanne of Cyranno de Bergerac was being played by one of the handsomest guys in school, I had to see it. Also, my brother told us about the time our father and he met him on Ateneo Ave. After exchanging greetings, he asked father, " Is he your eldest son?" My father replied, "Oh no, my eldest son is a daughter." The whole family burst into tearful laughter. View Post

  • Theanna: Thanks for the above concerns. I thought I was the only one who sensed something odd, since I read the news printed under the Business section on Nov.15. I posted a comment, after much deliberation, on Nov. 17 re the offensive word in the headline. My simple arithmetic doesn't add up to the expected results of this huge 3billion peso project. I feel like the child in Hans Christian Andersen's story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". I can't figure out how the people there can generate 100 tons of garbage a day. View Post

  • Pastor Dan: Can we rely on the government to be able to address the perennial problem of hunger and malnutrition among marginalized children ? Your guess is as good as mine... I just thought we could be more introspective with the developmental role of privately funded NGOs. The NGOs can play a crucial role in addressing this issue... more so if the present dispensation manifest some tangible support for them... View Post
  • Engr. Efren Rempola: Tama ka dyan, Manoy Joel, bako man si Fortuno o si Aga Muhlach an mabugtak saimo sa Kapitolyo tangaring ibalik mo sa mga taga-Camarines Sur an harong na ini. Kun talagang habo saimo ni Aga, sa cuarto distrito, yaon baga si dating Cong. Wimpy Fuentebella asin an mga Alcalde na supotado ki Spkr Noli Fuentebella. Dae naman yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte ta aram naman ninda na drama man sana an labanan kan mag-amang Luis asin L-Ray. Sa quinto distrito (Rinconada), Manoy Joel, yaon baga si dating Cong Nancing Alfelor. Aram man sana kan gabos na Rinconada na iyo ini an tunay na LP bakong si Fortuno. Dae naman pati yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte nin huli ta bistado na an iwal-mag-ama na sarong pakitang-tao lang tangaring sinda-sinda na sana an maglaban sa eleccion, eh, ngonyan yaon ka dyan Manoy, dikit na sacripisyo na lang, hahalion na an mag-ama asin ma-ibabalik na an Kapitolyo sa mga tao.
