The Eco-team at Northoaks Primary School is made up of environment enthusiasts who champion the school's efforts in conserving the environment within and beyond the school. In partnership with the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) Singapore, the Eco-team carries out environmental education and tackles environmental issues such as recycling of waste, conservation of water and energy, and cultivating biodiversity in the school.
Through opportunities such as assembly talks, energy and water campaigns, students are made more aware of man's impact on the environment, thereby encouraging them to play their part in conserving the environment. Students also got to be environmental advocates to members of the public and promote environmental sustainability through activities such as upcycling.
- The Eco-team collaborated with NEA to co-host students and teachers visiting from China. During their visit, Northoak Primary School's students had the chance to present the school's Environment Education to the visitors, show them the school environment and conduct an upcycling workshop with them.
- In 2019 after PSLE, their graduating students reached out to the Sembawang community to promote environmental awareness through upcycled arts and craft, and sharing about the school's efforts in sustaining the environment.
- Members from the Eco-team and student helpers from Friends of Singa project were invited by Sembawang GRC to promote the school's environment education and teach the residents how to upcycle plastic bottles into "self-watering" gardens.
