The Green Team is Revived
Thursday, June 23, 2016
The Green Team is revived. This is the school’s response to the call of Pope Francis who said, “we are losing our attitude of wonder, of contemplation, of listening to creation; and we no longer manage to interpret within it what Benedict XVI calls the rhythm of the love story between God and man”
The Green Team which is a school organization spearheads the Green Movement which aims to sustain environmental education integration in all levels, increase awareness of the whole CIC community, and to participate in ecological preservation activities.
All the members of the CIC-Cebu community are expected to live the environmental practices that include segregation of garbage, use of water containers, clean up after eating, turn off switches, use of draft papers even for quizzes, among others.
To recall, CIC-Cebu was adjudged second in the “Search for Eco-Friendly School” in 2009 because of its school practices. The search was initiated by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Department of Education in coordination with some business establishments. The first placer was a school in Dumaguete City.
