Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â A total of 158 students from Bukur elementary school, Wasiat Village, Ngombol sub-district in Purworejo, followed the mass toothbrush and drinking milk movement, Friday (4/12). Both activities are part of the program implemented by the unit V students of Student Community Service (KKN PPM) Purworejo. Activities began at 08.30 with the mouth and dental health education which was presented by a local health clinic. After that, participants received guidance from the students in practicing how to brush their teeth correctly.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Student field coordinator, Subaedy Yusuf, said that the mass movement of tooth brushing and drinking milk is aimed to cultivate the students' healthy living behavior. Previously, the students also received training to operate the computer. ''We also provide computer training to students which is carried out late in the afternoon. The training starts from the start switch, storing data, typing, to calculating using the Excel program,'' said Subaedy.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â During his time in the location, said Subaedy, the students have done activities to the utilization of productive agricultural land in the region close to power stations by integrating catfish farming in tarpaulin ponds, cultivating King bananas and Californian bananas. In addition, field training of organic rice farming and free animal health inspection were also conducted.
Mujiyem, S.Pd., the Principal of Bukur Elementary School welcomed the students activities at her school because it has not only helped introduce how to use computers to students, but also given practicum for science lessons. ''They were very close to the students. Hopefully it can give motivation to the students to go to college at UGM,'' he said.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Mayor of Wasiat Village, Ir. Rofian Bastaman, says that what the students have done can help the community activities in the field of agriculture and animal husbandry. ''I hope the Village's will be rationed for the next program. The community feels happier when there are community service activities. The UGM students respond very well,'' said Rofian, an UGM alumnus of Civil Engineering in 1993 who had become head of the village for 3 years.
