Nutrition Month 2018

“Ugaliing magtanim, Sapat na nutrisyon aanihin!”
MCAMS fortifies gardening skills of Students
MCA Montessori School, Inc. celebrated Nutrition Month with the theme “Ugaliing Magtanim, Sapat na Nutrisyon Aanihin!” at the MCAMS School Grounds last July 1-30, 2018.

This year’s theme, as selected by the National Nutrition Council, champions family gardening and growing our own greens right in our backyards, to ensure nutrition for every Filipino family.

Incidentally, Gardening is one of the initiatives implemented this school year. As part of the Supplemental programs launched in the Elemetary and Junior High School Department, students get to cultivate their own plants once a week in a community garden setup just outside the walls of the school. Each year level is assigned a fast growing vegetable such as: pechay, monggo, Okra, among others. Students as young as Grade 1 get to feel the dirt in their hands as they plant their own seeds.

Meanwhile, to celebrate the Nutrition Month, each department came up with different set of activities. From Pre-school’s “Make Your Own Salad” Day to the Senior High Department’s Mr. and Ms. Nutrition and Master Chef battles, MCAers showcased their talents and skills in activities that truly foster MCAMS’ thrust in holistic development.
