Earth Day 2016

The theme for this year’s Earth Day is “Trees for Earth”. It aims to increase the awareness on

the importance of trees in our environment, especially on its role on climate change.


From 18 to 22 April 2016, as part of our efforts to celebrate Earth Day in Gongshang Primary

School, the Science Department spearheaded a collaboration with the different departments and CCA groups to kickstart a series of experiential learning activities for the pupils to better understand the objectives and importance of going green.


Pupils were taught to create items using recyclable material by the Green Club. They also had first‐hand experience in making paper from paper pulp, prepared by the Science Club.

The E2K pupils conducted Green Conversations where pupils get to share their thoughts of climate changes through an online discussion platform.


The lower primary pupils designed interesting art pieces from unwanted cardboard egg trays and used CD‐ROMs. The upper primary pupils had a reading lesson on climate changes where their English teachers highlighted to them human impacts on the environment. Together with the English Department and Media Resource Library Club, a new initiative Give and Share was initiated to encourage pupils to donate their pre‐loved storybooks and extend the sharing to their schoolmates. This year long project hopes to instil the school value of thrift and to inculcate the habit of recycling in school, whilst inculcating a culture of reading.


After the week’s activity, pupils were equipped with the knowledge and skills to continue the 3Rs efforts beyond school, to their daily lives. The school will continue to advocate the environmental messages to the pupils and play our part in keeping our Earth clean and green.
