Life at KIS | Specialist Programme
The Award For Young People
This year, the Environment Committee in the International Section was formed. It comprises of Secondary students and teachers, and works closely with the International Section PTA to push forward and carry out environmental initiatives in the school.
The Environment Committee organises campaigns and events that aim to raise awareness of green issues on a local and international level. Drawing from the core values of vision, passion and action, we focus on recycling materials and resources, reducing electricity consumption and sustaining a healthy environment in school.
One of the most significant green events of this school year was the KIS Goes Green School Fair, organised by the PTA and the Environment Committee. With a variety of stalls promoting greener practices, students, parents and teachers were able to participate in a wide range of green activities and support local organic food suppliers. The Environment Committee also held a Green Corner where students helped to create a Green Mural for the school.
Throughout this year, the Environment Committee and Environment ECA have worked hard to promote recycling by providing recycle bins for paper, plastic bottles and cans in classrooms and the school canteen.
In conjunction with this, the students from the Environment ECA have created posters that provide tips for reducing electricity consumption in the classrooms and around the school.
We have also supported various environmental campaigns that include:
- World Animal Day
- Hong Kong Seahorse Conservation Programme
- A beach clean-up on Lamma Island run by the Eco-Education and Resources Centre HK.
- WEEE Recycling Programme – Creative Short Film Contest
The Environment Committee is looking forward to build on the successes of this school year by continuing to promote and sustain a greener Korean International School!
