CIS Lakeside Secondary School received its first award from World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Singapore for the student-run Green Machine club's efforts to improve the sustainability of the school.

The silver award we received was the second highest award possible, and CIS now joins thousands of schools around the world making a difference by conserving natural resources as a WWF eco school.

Projects that helped the students reach this achievement included: new recycling and reusing initiatives, the development of the rooftop garden and markets, composting programme, awareness initiatives, meat reduction pledges, and formation of an eco-committee with various stakeholders from the school administration, teachers, students, parents and Sodexo. The students are planning to apply for the highest award, the Green Flag award, next year.

Parents or staff who wish to be a part of Green Machine projects can contact Mr Michael Broadhead at
