At Nan Hua High School, the Innovation and Environment Education Committee plans and creates enriching learning experiences for Nan Hua High students in sustainable environment education.
Each year, as part of the school's CnME programme, a holistic life-skills development programme for all Secondary One to Secondary Three students, the students will learn a different topic related to environmental conservation and sustainable lifestyle.
- In 2019, Secondary 3 students went through a 7-week module on marine biodiversity and marine conservation from January to March with Dr Toh Tai Chong, a lecturer from the College of Alice and Peter Tan, NUS, and his team of student facilitators. (Figure 1)
- In 2020, the Innovation and Environment Education Committee collaborated with the Values-in-Action Committee to involve all Secondary One students in growing edible plants at home and harvesting them for distribution to the community. Plants grown include tomatoes, lady's fingers and kangkong. (Figures 4 & 5)
The school holds an annual ECo-Serve Week. In 2019, it was held in conjunction with Earth Hour, from 25-29 March, and new initiatives such as a 7-days Zero Waste Challenge and Building of Eco Furniture were introduced. (Figures 2 & 3)
The school also organises the National Environment Quiz every year to educate young participants from primary and secondary schools across the country on environmental issues and concerns.
