Description

What: A greener, cleaner environment at the school and greater bio-diversity.

How: We have installed 2 EV charging points and plan to do more. We have improved our bike shelters to encourage students to cycle to school. We have increased our bio-diversity with wildlife areas. Soon we shall be planting an orchard at the front of the school and more trees at the periphery of our school. We have also removed hundreds of square metres of concrete and replaced with grass this year. More activities under 'Project Green' are still underway. Every activity is signposted at school.
