Environmental Education

Focus:

Since attaining the LLP (Learning for Life Programme) status for Environmental Education in 2014, the EE Committee has been committed to building an eco-conscious culture among its students and staff. It also hopes to leverage on its strong foundation in environmental education it has built over the years by putting in place structured school-wide as well as level-wide programmes with the aims of building in our students the desired characters and nurturing their talents and skills in which they would be able to apply later on in life.

 

Objectives:

The EE Committee adopt the 3As approach outlined in the Environmental Education Framework (See Appendix A) to instil in our students the love for the environment. To achieve this goal, the committee aims to shape our student’s attitude towards caring for the environment through enhancing the green culture and greening the school environment. Raising the environmental awareness among the school community can be achieved through the structured infusion of EE into the school curriculum. Having acquired the knowledge and skills in protecting the environment, the committee hopes these can be translated into actions through the various environmental projects and outreach programmes the school community have carried out.
