Respect Education Program workshops commenced on the 2nd week of July 2015 and was conducted simultaneously in 33 public schools of General Santos City, Sarangani Province and Sultan Kudarat.
For the months of October and November is the 3rd set of REP workshop which is"Welcome to my world”. This workshop make the children aware on what are things they should respect in their surroundings. This workshop includes 3 specific activities,
1) Be my guest, where children learn how to be hospitable, how to act when a spontaneous visitor knocks on the door and what to give, share and what to show to the visitors (Grades 4 & 7);
2) This is our school, where the half of the class are given an opportunity to showcase the school where they are studying by using drawings and pictures to describe it and the other half of the class take photos of their school environment, highlighting the places that they like best and the areas that are neglected and in need of attention. In this activity, the children exchange ideas about their living environment and work together to help identify solutions to existing problems and challenges. It is a fun and creative way of raising awareness about global issues and their responsibilities or accountabilities (Grades 5 & 9);
3) From trash to art. The children collect waste and other recyclable materials like cellophane, sticks, leaves, papers, plastic cups or anything available materials in their surroundings and they start working freely and use their creativity to make their own arts (Grades 6 & 8).
