If there may be important lessons that COVID-19 teaches us and forces us to do, these would be to always wash our hands and to consistently disinfect our surroundings.
It is for this reason that as part of “Pisayuda: Syensya Para sa Bayan” outreach program, the campus director of Philippine Science High School Southern Mindanao tapped the janitors to make foot baths and the chemistry faculty to dilute absolute ethanol to make 70% ethyl alcohol.
CONSTRUCTING FOOT BATHS FOR BARANGAY OFFICES
The three (3) sets of foot bath constructed by the janitorial personnel were distributed to the three neighboring barangays of the campus, namely Barangay Mintal, Barangay Bago Oshiro, and Barangay Sto. Niňo last April 2, 2020 for their use to disinfect the footwear of the visitors and staff entering their premises.
Included in the package donated to each of these three barangays was one container full of chlorine – taken from the four (4) barrels of chorine donated by PSHS-SMC Batch 1993 Alumni led by Ms. Chin-Chin Nobleza, Mr. Jonah Nobleza and Ms. Dindin Velasco.
