Environmental Education @ OPSS

 An OPSS community of concerned global citizens who make informed choices that contribute to a healthy and sustainable future.
 Spearheaded by our Environmental Club, the school will:

 1. Develop in staff and students an increased appreciation of the environment;
 2. Raise awareness amongst members of the OPSS community on key environmental issues;
 3. Instil a sense of personal responsibility for protecting and preserving the environment in            staff and students; and
 4. Provide appropriate platforms to encourage members of the OPSS community to act on            their environmental convictions.
