Health and Nutrition Program

AFFLIP has assisted Dońa Soledad Dolor Elementary School further develop the school feeding program by providing necessary resources for gardening tools and materials resulting in a significant increase in the harvest of vegetables. The school garden is a place of learning, where students are engaged in establishing garden plots, planting, cultivating, watering and harvesting vegetables and at the same time they learn Science and Mathematics. A First Aid kit has been provided for our little doctors and nurses guided by the clinic/science teacher. AFFLIP has sponsored the registration fee for 25 girl scouts and 25 boy scouts.

Schools Network Program

Dońa Soledad Dolor Elementary School and Flaxmill Primary School work in partnership.  This networking provides many opportunities for students, parents and teaching staff to connect between Mindanao and South Australia.  Teachers share teaching strategies and students gain greater cross cultural understanding along with an appreciation of their role as global citizens.
