Sustainable Schools in Singapore: The Grange Institution

The Grange is committed to promoting sustainability in its operations and education. We recognise that our actions have an impact on the planet, and we are dedicated to reducing our ecological footprint, and educating our students on the importance of sustainability – not just of environment, but also society – for the well-being of our planet and future generations.

To achieve our sustainability goals, we are committed to:

  • Reducing our waste: We will strive to minimise our waste and divert as much as possible from the landfill by promoting recycling, composting, and reducing our use of single-use plastics.
  • Conserving resources: We will work to reduce our energy and water consumption by implementing energy-efficient practices, such as turning off lights and electronics when not in use, and maintaining our facilities to reduce water waste.
  • Protecting our environment: We will work to preserve the natural environment around us by promoting biodiversity on our grounds and reducing our impact on local ecosystems.
  • Educating our community: We will provide our students, staff, and community with the tools and knowledge needed to make sustainable choices in their daily lives, and will lead by example through our own sustainability practices.
  • Promoting good relationships: We will exemplify acts of kindness as a key value in the development of a respectful society

To achieve this goal, we have implemented a number of initiatives and policies aimed at reducing our energy consumption, waste generation, and carbon emissions. These include:

  • Recycling and waste reduction: We have implemented a comprehensive recycling program, which includes recycling bins in every classroom and common area. We also encourage students and staff to reduce waste by using reusable water bottles, lunch containers, and bags.
  • Green spaces: We have created a number of green spaces on our campus, including a miniature food forest, butterfly garden, eco-garden and planting strips. Boasting over a 100 varieties of fruits, plants and vegetables, these spaces provide opportunities for students to learn about sustainability and to connect with nature.
  • Curriculum integration: Through our award-winning ‘Green Granger’ initiative, we integrate sustainability topics into our curriculum, and we offer students opportunities to learn about environmental science, sustainability, and social responsibility. We also provide opportunities for students to engage in environmental and sustainability projects and initiatives.

We believe that these efforts will not only benefit the environment, but will also create a healthier, more productive, and more sustainable society and future for our school and the world at large. We are committed to continuing to improve our practices and to playing our part in creating a more sustainable world.
