Effective micro organisms

Effective Micro-organisms

  • Effective Micro-organisms or EM is a bio-organic cleaner.

  • It has been used for agricultural purposes

  • EM will be used in our school pond to kill algae, rather then using chemicals.

Roof garden

Roof Garden

  • In Singapore, land is scarce.

  • Roof top gardens are a good way of teaching our pupils agrotechnology.

  • We intend to build such a garden cultivating plants which can survive well in extreme sunlight and yet produce food crops.

  • It will also serve as a green area for pupils to relax and study.
