A Case Study
By: Agnes – Dimson
Life doesn't always hand us solutions to go with the problems and situations we encounter. If you're in a pinch or squeeze, sometimes you have to use what you have, along with a bit of creativity and ingenuity, to get through it. No guide can address every possible situation that might arise, but there are many ways on how to deal with it. According to the http://www.thefreedictionary.com, resourceful defines as having inner resources; adroit or imaginative or someone who is resourceful is capable of dealing with difficult situations".

Bulldozers were borrowed from the Department of Public works and Highways and the National Irrigation Administration. Tree seedlings were donated by the Department of Agriculture. As classroom buildings started to rise, a mobilized army of students and their parents cleared the area armed with picks and shovel. Pathways were sculpted and paved with gravel and sand. Waterways were made for rainy days. A perimeter fence was constructed. It was a sight to behold, said one chemistry teacher “Groups of people worked together for the common good”. One group went around rationing food and water, another group loaded and unloaded materials, and still another group heaped the debris into one place, and so on. The improvements of the school do not end here. Because the new campus was a few kilometers away from the national road, the parents presented a petition to the owns transport organization.
