Environmental Protection

Our mission: 4Rs


Our organized efforts are to teach about how natural environments function and, particularly, how we can manage our behavior and ecosystems in order to live sustainably. The 3Rs slogan of "Reuse, Reduce, Recycle" has been at the heart of our efforts to educate our students about waste management. Yet it leaves out a crucial overarching element, and that is "Responsibility" since environmental education is based on the unity of knowing and doing. Our mission is therefore to enhance our students’ environmental awareness as well as environmental responsibility, implementing the 4Rs.

Limit Use of Plastic Eating Utensils

The school policy continues since October, 2006. Most of the students have got used to the policy and started to bring their own utensils during other activities such as Christmas party.


Environmental Ambassadors(EA)

  1. Newly enrolled Environmental Ambassadors

    Other than the 3R slogans, responsibility is a crucial factor for the success of environmental protection in the school setting. Students are encouraged to take their responsibilities to protect our school environment. EPA will be enrolled from CYC members who are interested in promoting EP in the campus. Our committee will promote the scheme and give regular reports of environment. The EA will help to organize activities and monitor the progress of our school environment.

  2. Training Courses

    In order to get well equipped with green knowledge and set good examples for fellow schoolmates, the ambassadors may attend workshops or training courses so that they can do their jobs in the most efficient way.


  3. Classroom Energy-Saving and Cleanliness - Inspection

    Each class will appoint a representative (a monitress) to assure efficient energy management and urge the students to keep the classroom clean. All teachers will help monitoring the classroom environment and take immediate actions if necessary.

    The committee will promote the sense of responsibility of keeping the classroom clean. The Environmental Ambassadors will do the inspection during lunch time and after school several from time to time and give timely reminder for classes that need immediate improvement. The EA inspection will be more efficient if the green measures are carried out through the whole school approach.

Green Christmas Party & Green Life Learning Day

We believe that our students could follow the principles of environmental protection even during regular school activities. We disapprove of the use of paper cups & plates and plastic forks & spoons during both activities. The committee continues to work with the ECA so that students will not waste food.

For the Life-wide Learning Day, we believe that our students could follow the green principles to ensure the environmental protection. As usual, we disapprove of the use of paper cups & plates and plastic forks & spoons during both activities. Though students are used to the green measures, the committee will continue to do the necessary promotion and monitoring this year and we will work closely with the Life Wide Committee and the SA. Mr Lo will contact the LWC head.

We will abide by the four basic principles of the plan though following 2 will be accepted. They are: 1) avoid using wrapping paper; 2) avoid unnecessary food wastage; 3) use of reusable cutlery and containers and 4) avoid over-decorations. Our students have been following the rules as always. But a constant and timely reminder will be a blessing.

Hall Assembly on Environmental Protection

There will be a hall assembly for senior and junior forms respectively. Mr. Lo and Ms. Lee are teachers-in-charge.

Introduction of Solar System and Kitchen Waste Recycling

Our school has set up the Solar Energy System and Kitchen Waste Recycling System and the facilities are ready for use. We will install more solar receiving plates this school this year so that hot water supply will be possible in cookery room and in some toilets on the ground floor. In addition, some gymnastic equipment for generating energy has been installed so that teachers and students can enjoy keeping fit and protect the environment at the same time.

Social Awareness

Current Affair Society

The society will continue in widening participants’ horizons through training them to understand and to analyze the current affairs in different angles. The society remains independent and open to all students. CYC members interested in current affairs can attend meetings of the society. We may invite senior LS students, e.g. S4 and S6, to join the society so as to lead the lower-form members to have better analysis in the gatherings.

City Forum (城市論壇)

It is an ideal opportunity for the committee to organize cross-curricular activity this year since students of Social Studies, IH and S6 Liberal Studies are encouraged to join the forum. Through actively participating the activity, students could understand social issues more and learn how to voice their opinions in public.

Activities for Sudden Current Issues in Local and International Community (School Theme Activity)

Ms Yeung and Mr Lai can arrange students to do the sharing.

Cross Panels Activities

The LS panel will arrange a talk or role play by Mr. Leung KH, a Legislative Councilor, at a forum. The details are yet to be confirmed.

Visit the Legislative Council

Community Youth Club


The aim of the organization is to nurture the sense of civic responsibility in youth people through visiting social services organizations and experiencing their work so that they see the need in actively participate in social services. The slogan for CYC is "To Understand, To Care and To Serve". Its scope of work agrees with the School Sub-theme this school year.
