As part of observing September as Stewardship and Ecology Month, the Alay Kapwa at Kalikasan (AKK) Department of Assumption Antipolo conducted an immersion program for the Grade 7 students last September 17, 2019. The activity brought together Grade 7 students and Center for Service and Sharing (CSS) mothers from Sitio Malanim I and Sitio Malanim Gitna in Antipolo, Rizal.
The said activity pushed through despite the heavy downpour brought by Tropical Depression Nimfa ravaging Luzon since that weekend. Everyone gathered at the Grade 7 classrooms for the event. The students were paired with their respective sitio mothers who willingly gave a glimpse about their aspirations in life over a plate of lasagna and bread prepared by the CSS staff. The activity was facilitated by Ms. Camille Bernardo, Grade 7-AKK instructor.
The activity concluded with the sitio mothers bidding their goodbyes. Afterward, the students were asked to accomplish activity sheets and then they proceeded to the mini-theatre to discuss their realizations.
Over the years, this immersion program has served as a platform for the social transformation of Assumptionistas, setting their hearts ablaze with compassion for the marginalized sectors of society. This propels students to develop synergism with the community and work with them hand in hand to elevate human dignity.
