Ang Mo Kio Secondary School has several measures to encourage staff and students to care for the environment.
It has an Applied Learning Programme for lower secondary students which focuses on Environmental Sustainability. Students are taught about biodiversity in Singapore, the conservation of energy and resources, and coding for environment-related applications. Under this programme, Secondary One students will go on a learning journey to Pasir Ris Park to learn about the mangrove ecosystem, and work in small groups to pick up litter at Pasir Ris Beach so as to make it a safe environment for marine life and a clean environment for members of the public to carry out beach activities.
The school also has an Environment Club which seeks to promote eco-friendliness among staff and students, such as organising Earth Day activities and promoting recycling in the school.
To encourage students to go green, every class has an Environment Ambassador to remind students to conserve energy and practice the 3Rs, such as to recycle plastic drink bottles and the newspapers distributed to them.
All these measures have helped the school to be awarded the Sustained Lotus Award by the Singapore Environment Council and the International Green Flag by the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) Singapore.
