Green Activists Club

CCA Past and Present

The Green Activists Club started in 2002. From a mere 15 students in 2002, the club has not only grown in size but also in stature.

The key programmes and projects of the Green Activists Club focus on various environmental themes such as climate action, water and energy conservation, nature and biodiversity appreciation, as well as green buildings and features. We also organise different types of green competitions, camps and workshops for pre-schools, primary school children and secondary school students. These are some of the ways through which we create greater awareness on environmental issues and events in the students and community.

The Green Activists Club actively collaborates with other schools in EE Trial, camps and workshops to exchange ideas and enable our students to lead and facilitate in the activities. Other than organising these camps and workshops, the Green Activists learn valuable skills and values through participating in learning journeys and signing up for competitions related to environmental theme. It provides a platform for participants to showcase their talent and apply their knowledge in environment education to achieve the objective of the competition. There are also other platforms for Green Activists to learn to be good student-leaders as well as responsible team-players. The Green Activists Club also creates awareness among staff and students in the school through Inter-class Recycling Challenge and making Teachers’ Day Gift to show appreciation and application of upcycling.

In addition, we have very supportive and strong green partners who have provided the Green Activists and other Woodgrovers various learning opportunities. Our green partners include:

  • Ministry of the Environment & Water Resources (MEWR)
  • National Environment Agency (NEA)
  • PUB (The National Water Agency)
  • National Parks Board (NParks)
  • Singapore Environment Council (SEC)
  • Waterways Watch Society (WWS)
  • SembWaste
  • Building and Construction Authority (BCA)
  • Public Hygiene Council and North West CDC
