To empower every student to be a confident advocate and steward for the environment.
Through a structured 6 year programme, with a Head, Heart and Hands approach, students are equipped with knowledge on environmental issues and challenges, and relevant skills to mitigate these challenges to become advocates to promote environment sustainability in the community.
It is a journey where students develop the empathy and heart to take care of their environment and blossom into eco-stewards who advocate with their mastery of KSA.
EE-INFUSED PROJECT WORK
Anchored on environmental themes under the Singapore Green Plan 2030, and differentiated at each level, the school’s signature EEPW enable students to develop an understanding on environmental challenges, acquire knowledge on the value of environmental responsibility and attain skills to meet the social and environmental challenges of the future.
Students are engaged in authentic learning processes to understand the environmental related ecological / sociological issues such as waste management (P3), food scarcity (P4), and water scarcity (P5). Students are guided to analyse the various issues and develop innovative solutions to mitigate the issues. Students are also trained in presentation skills so as to help them in their advocacy effort on environmental issues among their peers. Some programme highlights include:
1. P4 Urban Farming
An urban farm made up of 20 vertical grow towers was installed in school as part of the P4 level programme carried out during Project Work to allow students to understand the importance of food security and the technologies behind urban farming.
A green environment is our responsibility! Our students take up the role of up-keeping and maintaining our school's very own urban farm.

2. P5 Hydroponics Programme
Closing of international borders has heightened our awareness of the need to enhance food security and sustainability. The P5 Hydroponics programme infused into Project Work is designed to expose students to the knowledge on food security, agriculture and high-tech sustainable farming technology. In the programme, students will be engaged in a series of training sessions that consists of theory lessons and practical hands-on experiences on modern high-tech sustainable farming technology. With the rich harvest from the urban farms going to the community fridge situated in the Boon Lay community, students will also learn about the importance of giving back.

P6 GIVES BACK PROGRAMME
The P6 Gives back programme allows P6 students to better understand the importance of energy sustainability and how we can lower our carbon footprint. In collaboration with Boon Lay Community Club, selected groups of P6 students will be given the opportunity to advocate to residents on using energy efficient appliances and tips to save energy in their homes.
