Highlights for 2016
Damai Primary School has received the Lotus Achievement Award (1st tier) in the SEC-Star Hub School Green Awards (SGA) in 2016. The award is administered by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) and sponsored by Star Hub.
The SGA is aimed at educating and inspiring learners of all ages on issues such as waste minimisation, resource conservation and the greening of the school grounds.
2016 is the first year in which Damai Primary School has received the Lotus Achievement Award. The attainment of this award greatly affirmed our school’s overall and collaborative efforts for moving in the right direction in terms of resource conservation and waste management as a school of care, specifically for the environment.
Community Programmes in 2017
Environmental Club pupils helms the food digester and composting programme. This is part of a school-wide effort to tackle food waste, with Environmental Club pupils guiding their peers on the importance of not wasting food.
Pupils helps to collect food waste such as fruit peels from the canteen and using food waste for composting to provide fertiliser for use in the Science garden. Pupils also promote awareness on food wastage by designing posters which are placed around the school.
Environmental Club pupils help to spread awareness to their peers on the toxic substances present in electronic waste and the impact on its improper disposal which can lead to serious pollution and health problems. As there are few avenues to properly dispose of electronic waste, the Environmental Club has set up an electronic waste recycling corner and are encouraging their peers to bring electronic waste from their homes to the school for disposal.
Pupils team up and participate in a clean-up activity in the neighbourhood outside the school in collaboration with partners such as NE CDC to promote anti-littering awareness.
All classes are involved in weekly recycling. The Environmental Club members help to prepare recycling boxes for the class recycling efforts. Environmental Club members help to advocate and encourage their classmates to participate actively in the school’s recycling effort.
