Green School

Green School Vision

Singapore’s national vision and plans for a more liveable and sustainable Singapore is outlined in the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint (SSB), which was launched in 2014. The SSB has laid out targets to achieve Singapore’s ambition in practising sustainable development. 

Similarly, HPPS hopes to foster specific skills, and competencies in our students and ourselves as a community that focuses on environmental sustainability in all aspects of everyday life, inside and outside of school. 

Green School Objectives
  1. To raise awareness about environmental issues among members of the school community.
  2. To motivate staff and students to take concrete actions that contributes to sustainable living in their own ways.
  3. To promote deeper awareness of environmental stewardship among students that enhances 21CC through enriched outdoor and authentic learning experiences using inquiry-based learning

Key Focus Areas


1

Growing Environment Leaders

Holistic, student-centered approach to inspire and empower students to become environmental leaders.


Tapping on their natural curiosity, combined with a desire to explore, students will learn, through authentic experiences, and understand the issues facing our environment and actively seek real life solutions to making it more sustainable.

2

Reducing Waste

By engaging the school community, reducing waste leads to lowers costs, more efficient use of resources and a more eco-friendly school environment.

3

Eco Friendly Facilities

Making the world sustainable starts with making our own school sustainable. Hence, we need to ensure that we make our facilities eco-friendly.

4

Enhancing Biodiversity

Instrumental in providing enriching and exciting outdoor learning experiences to make students appreciate and care for the environment.
