In line with the Toyota Eco Youth 2017 Challenge, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Raja Perempuan (RPS) recently conducted an environmental conservation programme in the vicinity of the school. The programme was held in an effort to reduce carbon footprint for the preservation and conservation of the environment.

Datin Hjh Rogayah Bt Sukor, Principal of RPS, was pleased with the programme as it had helped to educate the community to manage their wastes properly.

The event was officiated by the Director of Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp) Perak, Hjh Fatimah bt Hj Ahmad.

Fatimah, in her opening speech, encouraged schools to set up eco-clubs such as “Kelab Kitar Semula” (recycling club) and “Kelab Rekacipta” (inventors club). Such clubs, according to her, could help reduce garbage dumps and, at the same time, generate some income for the schools.
