Alice Smith School Community Making An Impact For a Better Tomorrow

18 Nov 2019

The Alice Smith School Foundation recently launched its Be Remarkable Sustainability campaign with an Eco-Community Day on Saturday, 2nd November.
The day marked the start of Alice Smith’s journey of environmental stewardship. The event was launched by YAM Tengku Zatashah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Board Member of the Alice Smith School Foundation.
As part of the Foundation’s community engagement, an inter-school community project in collaboration with SMK Seri Kembangan, a local secondary government school arranged through partnership with PINTAR Foundation was launched. Representing the launch was SMK Seri Kembangan Headmistress Tee Poh Wah and PINTAR Foundation’s board of trustee representative, Sabri Abdul Rahman.
The day included a Green Generation Talk presented by a panel of eco-champions - Advocate of #sayno2plastic and #zerofoodwaste campaign YAM Tengku Zatashah, Deputy British High Commissioner David Thomas, Free Tree Society President Baida Hercus, Kloth Cares Najah Onn, Biji-biji Initiative and Me.reka Rashvin Pal Singh; in addition to various family fun activities, exhibitions and workshops.
There was also the opportunity for guests to contribute towards the Foundation’s Green Thumb Project focusing on 3 sustainability efforts: Give Life, Clean Energy and Learn Sustainability.
In support of the school’s environmental initiatives, beautiful fabric recycling bins designed by students have been placed at each school campus to create awareness and encourage fabric recycling in the community.
YAM Tengku Zatatshah hopes for more schools to get on board. “I hope to see the environmental efforts grow amongst schools. It can start small, with just one person to initiate by stopping their single-use plastics habit to a school clean-up as a class project. The idea will then keep on growing from class to a school project.”
Tengku Zatashah’s future hope is there will be more junior eco-warriors.
Together we can make a difference to save our Earth!
