Environmental Education


Every Yuan Ching student an advocate for a sustainable future


Through the school’s Environmental Education (EE) programmes, our students will be more aware of the need for sustainable practices in everyday life. Grounded in values, they will go on to role model desirable actions related to sustainability and be advocates of the sustainable practices to others.


Our students experience EE through their daily lessons, Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) and other school-wide programmes. Using the Head-Heart-Hands approach, the students will undergo experiential learning to better appreciate and internalise how our actions play a part towards a sustainable future.


We develop student leadership in sustainability through our Environment Champions (E-Champs) programme, by providing training opportunities for our E-Champs to advocate for sustainability in their classes and beyond. Our vibrant Environment Club (E-Club) partners with our community to spread the sustainability message through outreach talks and exhibitions.
