International Coastal Clean-up, Singapore (ICCS)


ICCS is an international event that aims to collect data on the shoreline debris as well as encourage communities to come together to do their part in keeping their shorelines clean by removing the debris. The information gathered serves to educate the public on marine debris issues and the submission of the collated data to governmental and international organisations is aimed to promote positive actions to reduce shoreline debris and enhance aquatic environments.

 

As part of our school’s commitment in advocating
environmental sustainability, 101 students and teachers
carried out our annual ICCS on 15 September at Changi 
Beach Site 3, jointly organised by our school’s Environment
Club and Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum.
Despite the sweltering weather, our North Stars and
teachers worked tirelessly and removed nearly 200 kg
of trash.

Through this meaningful event, our North Stars learnt the
importance of waste minimisation to reduce shoreline
debris and the importance of keeping our shorelines
clean. For more detailed results, please visit
