Recycled orchestra performance at Clean & Green Singapore Carnival 2017
GIIS Balestier students participated in ‘Clean & Green Singapore Carnival’, an annual event organized by National Environment Agency on November 4, 2017 and also took part in ‘Compost Making Workshop’ on 5th and 6th November, 2017. The students were privileged to perform Percussion band using recyle materials like drums, bucket, biscuit and oil tins and to conduct workshop on Aerobic compost making using kitchen scraps.
Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies, was the honourable Guest of Honour at the event. The main aim is to inspire every individual to care and protect the environment by adopting clean, green and sustainable living.
It was an amazing journey for the students, the green champions, to showcase the compost making using everyday kitchen scraps , dry leaves, and plain youghurt for the visitors, which made it truly experiential for them. All the visitors who visited the exhibition were given a pack of compost to take home.
Few testimonials from few visitors, who visited the Compost Making Workshop, are as below:

Students created awareness of maintaining clean and green places through musical programme and also taught the technic of growing own organic food at virtually zero cost by using the kitchen scraps, thus saving the environment of landfill emission of green house gases.
