GoPetrol helped students of Aringay National High School in La Union get back into the learning groove through Northern Star’s Sikap, Tulong, Sulong corporate social responsibility program conducted on August 27, 2022.
Apart from donating supplies and volunteering to repair and refurbish school furniture and classrooms, the GP team upcycled old tires to plant pots and turned used oil drums to trash bins and a wash area. This initiative supports GoPetrol’s objective to help the communities where it operates and reduce its waste footprint.
GoPetrol’s Operations Assistant Manager and Pollution Control Officer, Pedelyn Paranada, also conducted a waste segregation awareness session with some of the science, technology engineering, and mathematics (STEM) stream students. The STEM students were encouraged to practice reducing, reusing, and recycling personal wastes, and to pass the message on to their fellow students, households and the community.
“We look forward to more partnerships with GoPetrol in the future,” said Dr. Adela C. Libunao, school principal. “It is with firm conviction and belief that such partnerships will make our learners feel safe and secure and achieve the dream of quality basic education for every 21st-century Filipino learner! Agyaman kami la unay ti adu! Dios ti agngina!”
