The SEC-StarHub School Green Awards (SGA) is a self-audited voluntary environmental programme which serves as a platform for students to develop and showcase their environmental efforts, through customised activities to help them gain a better understanding of the environment.
This year the theme for the awards was “Towards Zero Waste”.
The event was presided by the Guest of Honour Mr Ong Ye Kung, Minister of Education. Students of GIIS East Coast also set up a booth on aerobic composting and making newspaper bin liners, thereby, creating awareness on reducing the use of plastic bags as bin liners at the event.
