1000 school children graduated from Palamantasan yesterday.
Kraft Cheez Whiz's Palamantasan ng Sarap, Sustansya at Saya the Philippines’ biggest interschool grade-school competition on nutrition education held the national finals at UP Diliman University Theatre yesterday.
The said initiative
with the aim of raising awareness and encouraging support to fight malnutrition was held in cooperation with the Department of Education after 3 months of intense competition among schools nationwide.
During the finals, schoolchildren from as far as Cagayan de Oro, Isabela, Zamboanga, Cebu, and Tacloban flew to Manila to compete in various events such as Sabayang Pagbigkas, SandwichArt, Jarchitecture, Cheering, and Essay Writing competitions.
“These schoolchildren are at the stage of developing a sense of responsibility,” Alex Dan Tacderas, Category Manager Kraft Foods explains. “This is why we want them to learn the significance of proper nutrition–through a series of fun, creative and learning activities,” he adds.
Palamantasan is in line with the Department of Education’s thrust to enhance nutrition education, especially in public schools. “School is a second home where children learn basic lessons and values,” Tacderas shares. “That is why we wanted to direct our cause and execute our program in public schools.”
I salute the efforts of Kraft Cheez Whiz's Palamantasan in sharing the importance of proper nutrition and health education in public schools nationwide and may they continue to enliven the awareness campaign in the future. More health and nutrition programs in schools so learners will improve academic performance to raise the standard of education in the Philippines! Thank you Kraft!
Let us all join the advocacy of raising
awareness and encouraging support to fight malnutrition! Join Palamantasan here.
