On the 30th of November 2018, the members of the Loyola Mountaineers Senior High, together with volunteer students from the Ateneo SHS, climbed to the peaks of Mt. Batolusong in the province of Tanay, Rizal. This activity served as both an opportunity for other members of the Ateneo SHS to experience the delight and exhilaration of mountain climbing, and as a way for all participants to better appreciate our country’s landscapes and all its beauty. Travel brings a sense of inspiration for them to do their best in taking care of God’s creation. The climb was also a “clean-up climb” wherein the participants actively collected trash found along the trail during their ascent in order to reduce our impact on the mountain and help in the conversation of our environment.
