Green Club

Sunflower Competition 2015.jpg








The Yishun Town Green Club comprises YTzens who are passionate environmentalists. As advocates of environmental conservation, our members have been gardening regularly and practising the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). They have been gardening herbs, vegetables and flowers and recycling resources such as newspapers. To hone their skills and knowledge of environmental practices, they participated in competitions annually organised by Ngee Ann Polytechnic, National Environment Agency and Sembawang Corporation. The Green Club has given its members a platform to take stewardship of the environment.

One of our objectives is also to develop creativity, leadership and perseverance in our members through a plethora of activities which include community service and competitions. Green Club members have participated in Earth Day as well as Sembawang Shipyard’s ‘Green Wave’ Project to apply their creativity as well as demonstrate resilience. Nurture their leadership and public speaking skills by organising activities and conducting sharing sessions on the 3Rs among Green Club members.

Our members have also been active at the school front, through their involvement in the CCA Open House, School Open House and the regular sale of vegetables grown in our own rooftop garden. Our Club leaders conducted sharing sessions with other members on the enriching experiences gained at an Environment Forum. In addition, the members had the privilege of learning how to make terrarium from their seniors and got to bring their back home. They also conducted sharing sessions for the school on the practice of 3Rs and also made small gifts for Teachers Day using recycled materials
