The Assumption Antipolo community celebrated their annual Ecology Fair on September 28 to 30, concluding with the Fellowship days during the weekend. Each batch performed a dance number to begin the program while the rest of their activities were held in their individual classrooms. The fellowship aims to strengthen home-school partnerships and to forge stronger bonds among families in the school community.
The purpose of the Eco-Fair is to celebrate environmentally sustainable products and practices. The cups and containers used for the food sold were biodegradable and the school encouraged students and their families to bring or rent their own utensils in an attempt to lessen use of non-biodegradable products. This yearly celebration is in support of Pope Francis’ second encyclical “Laudato Si.” The school devoted such time for the said events in order to recognize the values of community spirit, social responsibility, and care for God’s creation to reclaim their joy as God’s beloved.
