During Eco-Serve Week, students were engaged in Eco-Craft upcycling booths and Eco-Race during their recess and lunch breaks. The Parent Support Group also gave out Grow Your Own Green kits, and our own hydroponics was harvested for staff. Go Green Day also encouraged all to take public transport or walk to school.

A trip to River Safari
“The Wildlife Buddies module was a truly enriching one as we got to learn how we can conserve and protect wildlife and appreciate its beauty. The trip to River Safari was my favourite part of the module as we were able to explore more about many marine animals. Through the module, we gained better in-depth knowledge on wildlife.”

Sec One CnME – Planting Tomato, Lady’s Finger and Kangkong in collaboration with Eco Action Day by Ricoh’s Seeds for Schools and making Eco Lanterns for Mid-Autumn Festival
The Innovation and Environment Education Committee collaborated with the Values-in-Action Committee to involve all Secondary One students in planting vegetables at home and harvesting them to distribute to the community. The plants include tomato, lady’s finger and kangkong. Through this joint project, students developed care for the environment and shared their harvest with the community.
Learing more about Hydroponics
To support Zero Waste Challenge, our Secondary One students collected used paper cartons and upcycled them into Eco Lanterns. These lanterns were collected and displayed around the school for the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Upcycling materials to make Eco Lanterns
Vegetables were planted, grown and harvested by students and teachers for all to enjoy, reducing carbon-footprint and enhancing sustainable living efforts.

In addition, the school was awarded the International Green Flag Award in January this year for its contributions to environment conservation. It is a two-year award which would be valid from 2020 to 2021. It was presented by the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) to our school principal in recognition of the school’s effort in environment conservation.
