Environmental Infrastructure

 
Following the school improvement project, the school has improved the environmental infrastructure to facilitate the implementation of environmental education.
 
Our school has implemented the greening project to serve the purposes of not only beautifying the school campus, but also increasing its ecological value and providing an educational venue for our students.
 In the indoor areas
In the school office, classrooms and staff rooms, small potted plants, such as Marigold and Scarlet Sage, and interior plants are cultivated. In the corridors, hanging baskets planted with flowers, such as Begonias, Impatiens and so on, are placed to create a beautiful and comfortable visual image.

In the outdoor areas
A variety of plants have been selected to grow in almost every corner of the outdoor areas, such as the area near the school gates, playground and likewise. The following plan shows the distribution of the major greening areas in the outdoor areas.
 

                                                                                                                                   

 

 

                      Ecological Garden

The school lawn is an open area partly sheltered by tall trees, such as the Flame of the Forest which has an umbrella-shaped crown. They provide not only a shelter but also a wildlife habitat for many birds. In recent years, fruit trees, including mango and papaya have grown and their fruit is edible.

 

Tree Species on the School Lawn 

 

A variety of plant species, especially nectar-producing plants and butterfly host plants have been growing in the garden plots to attract different species of butterflies and other insects. This can increase the biodiversity and ecological value of the school campus and provide a site for environmental education.

                  Natural Trail

With the help of the students’ parents, the new annex has been planted with potted greenery to beautify the school campus and create an atmosphere of environmental conservation. Near the hall, the Nature 

Trail has been set up. Apart from the installation of a specimen box, different flora species have grown and are labelled to enable students to cherish, love the plants, understand the importance of biodiversity

and increase their awareness of nature conservation.

              Greening Activities

Every year, our school joins the Greening School Award Scheme and the ‘One Person, One Flower’ Scheme organized by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, HKSAR. Greening activities are organized to cultivate students’ interest in growing plants and increase their enthusiasm for greening the school campus.

 Facilities for dissemination of the environmental information

 
           (1) The notice board on the fourth floor is used to show green tips and environmental news or information based on the annual theme set by the Student   
                     
                Environmental Protection Ambassador Scheme.
 
  (2)   The notice board on the ground floor is used to display the school’s environmental policy and guidelines as well as environmental activities held by the external organizations.
 
(3)   The spacious environment in the library has enabled us to install the environmental education corner where students can read the related books, pamphlets, brochures and CD-ROMs produced by the government departments, tertiary
       institutes and non-government organizations.
 
 
Facilities for promoting environmental friendly behaviour
 
 
            (1) The recycling boxes for waste paper are available in classrooms and staff rooms. All members in the school can dispose of waste paper for recycling easily.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
          (2) To support the ‘Sources Separation of Waste and Waste Reduction Scheme’ organized by the Environmental Protection Department, an iron cage has been set up near the car park for waste paper collection, while a reverse vending machine is placed near the lift on the 
                ground floor for the collection of plastic bottles.
 
          (3) Drinking fountains are provided with the purpose of reducing the use of plastic water bottles.
