TASI To Table Club members started their eight-month program on Saturday, Nov. 7, by learning about boating safety  and water quality from the Department of Public Safety and the Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality.

Club members learned from DPS-Boating Safety the importance of safety gear and what is required to ensure the safety of a sea vessel. They also learned how life jackets and flares are used, and the many dangers they may face when  sailing out to sea.

For its part, BECQ shared lessons about water quality.

BECQ explained how the quality of water is tested through a series of steps that include collecting samples, the use of probes and measuring dissolved oxygen. Club members likewise learned the significance of "red" and "green" flags and how they could keep the waters safe and protect the ecosystem.

"Our next activity for the students is a collaboration with [the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance] in cleaning up a beach area, followed by a session on suicide prevention,” Tasi To Table Club vice president Wayne Pangelinan said.

“We want them to learn the importance of a clean and healthy environment, and we also want them to understand themselves and others,” he added.
