The Jeju Special Self-Governing Province announced on Nov. 20 its plan to extend the One Oreum Per One Organization Care Movement to public schools.
Some 7,000 students at 37 schools located near oreum will participate.
In Jeju City, 18 schools, including eight elementary, four middle, and six high schools, and 19 schools in Seogwipo City (11 elementary, four middle, four high schools) will be a part of the program.
Participating school students will clean up trails, fix signs, and plant flowers at least once a month. As part of the program, students will learn plant taxonomy and ecology through making name tags for the trees.
Schools and other organizations that perform well will be selected by the provincial government and rewarded with a commendation from the governor. In addition, participating students will be given official certificates recognizing their volunteer service.
