Our story

PEL-Maka Piis Elementary School conducts annual tree planting at the school campus and other areas within the town especially in Mt. Banahaw. The school administration, together with the municipal agriculturist, MENRO (Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Officer), and all students of PEL 1-MakaPiis Elementary School are required to plant 1 tree per students. Aside from following the requirement, the school was also encouraged by OISCA CFP to join the worldwide tree planting activity called The Green Wave. PEL – Maka Piis Elementary School believes that it takes all our efforts to help preserve the environment.
