Environmental Club


The Environmental Club actively contributes to society by conducting Mozzie outreach programmes in the vicinity of Pine Close and Cassia Crescent. The Environment Club has adopted Lower Seletar Reservoir and Geylang River as part of PUB’s Nationwide Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) programme. Environmental Champions are  trained to be confident speakers through their role as Water Trail Ambassadors, raising public awareness about the need to keep Singapore waterways clean and safe.

Through the award winning Broadrick Community Garden and walk-in greenhouse maintained by the Environmental Champions, the Environmental Club aims to create an experiential learning experience for students. Critical and inventive thinking skills are infused and students create beautiful artwork using recyclables at the year-end of the Clean and Green Week.
