Green campus policy


Our school has always emphasized the importance of promoting environmental awareness among our students. Our aim is to enhance their civic spirit, fostering a care for the natural environment that surrounds us. Learning how to protect the environment and manage Earth's resources responsibly is a crucial aspect of education. Education can help students understand and implement sustainable development, as well as increase their competence in addressing environmental issues. This awakening to moral values (truth, goodness, beauty) means that the school has a responsibility to implement environmental education. This is in an effort to cultivate in students the values, attitudes, skills, and behaviors necessary for sustainable development. To effectively implement environmental education, it is essential to first establish a green campus policy.


Environmental education is a form of sustainable development education that cultivates students' environmental awareness, ultimately establishing:
1. A sense of mission - taking responsibility for protecting the environment
2. A sense of love - practicing compassion, including love for the environment, nature, and Earth
3. A wise heart - understanding environmental issues and conservation efforts locally (including Hong Kong) and globally, learning to consciously and wisely manage Earth's resources, implement environmental protection actions, and practice a green lifestyle.
Of course, through a series of environmental education initiatives, we can also heighten the environmental awareness of school management, teachers, non-teaching staff, and even parents. We foster in them a friendly attitude towards the environment and encourage them to live a lifestyle that protects the environment.

Three Major Environmental Policy Areas

1. Environmental Infrastructure: includes greening the campus, maintaining cleanliness, and enhancing the school's environmental infrastructure.
2. Environmental Management: includes environmental policies, management frameworks, measures, environmental education training, and the dissemination of environmental protection information.
3. Environmental Education and Activities: includes organizing environmental activities within the school and participating in community-held environmental activities.


  1. Green Campus
  2. The school arranges to plant various types of plants at different locations around the campus to beautify the school and create a comfortable learning environment. We encourage students to connect with nature, thereby highlighting the importance of plants to the ecosystem and global climate.

  3. Maintaining Campus Cleanliness
  4. A clean campus is a fundamental element of an eco-friendly school. Both indoor (classrooms, offices, restrooms) and outdoor areas must be kept clean. Students have a responsibility to keep the learning environment tidy, and janitors carry out regular cleaning work.

  5. Environmental Policy
  6. Through the formulation of policies, our school is committed to ensuring efficient and eco-friendly internal management. We regularly review and establish new environmental measures within the relevant framework and promote the participation of staff (school management, teachers, non-teaching staff, and janitors, etc.) in various environmental protection tasks.

  7. Environmental Management Framework
  8. 1. The Campus Affairs Group of the school department plans, coordinates, and promotes the entire school's environmental education work, reporting and accepting quality assessments in all-staff meetings.
    2. The School Affairs Office and janitorial staff meetings ensure that all environmental management measures are followed up on by the relevant staff and departments.

  9. Environmental Management Measures
