Schools' Green Audit Award

The Singapore Environment Council (SEC) is giving out awards to schools that participate in its "How Green is Your School" programme.

Mrs Selva, our vice-principal is receiving the award on behalf of our school from Mr. Howard Shaw the chairman of Singapore Environmnetal Council.

Here is a pictorial tour of Mayflower Secondary School -- A garden in bloom.

Mayflower Secondary School has been awarded the Hibiscus Award for the year 2007.

A quite corner for Mayflowerian to rest and recreate.

Knowledge is like a garden; if it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested.

I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918

Dear Vilma and Celine,
Thank you for sharing with the participants on STAS Day.
The Earth Buzz session has certainly created an awareness of Cicada Tree Ecoplace among the participants.
They have shown keen interest in the collaborative projects which CTEP does with schools.
Your team from Mayflower Sec has certainly created an impact! :-) hope they managed to sell all the Shoo Mozzie and perfume.
Thanks once again and STAS look forward to future collaboration with CTEP.
