Green-Themed Student Camp

Running on the theme, ‘Let’s Go Green to Get Our Globe Clean’, SMK Raja Perempuan organised its annual student camp recently. Form 1 to Form 6 students representing 13 schools from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Terengganu and Perak took part.

Go-green-oriented competitions included public speaking, solar car, best practices, green couture, hands on challenge and multimedia-video making.

One of the highlights was the ‘Ecological Thinking Save Our River’ programme held at Kinta Riverfront and Taman DR Seenivasagam. The pupils cleaned up the river, cleared rubbish from the drains, threw mud balls into the river to enhance the quality of the river, checked the water pH level, carried out pollution mapping and planted wetland plants. Then, it was followed by a brief talk on sewage treatment by Indah Water Konsortium.

The one-day camp also featured exhibitions by various governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Besides the camp, SMK Raja Perempuan has always stayed true to going green by having an organic farm, a “no paper, plastic and polystyrene” canteen policy, rain-harvesting barrels and recycling bins in the school.
