West Coast Earth Hour 2017
As part of the school's efforts to address important issues concerning climate change and being environmentally friendly, we are proud to present our very own Qifa News Network (QNN) team. Members from QNN filmed good practices of energy conservation and the 3Rs that are carried out in Qifa. This video has been simultaneously broadcast during Qifa's Earth Hour pre-assembly programme and also during the West Coast Community Earth Hour event. Qifa pupils who could not attend West Coast Earth Hour 2017 event were still able to participate in booths set up during their recess periods. They also watched both the QNN video and the ELDDS performance during the pre-assembly programme.
This event boosted collaboration and teamwork among pupils from different leadership programmes and Co-Curricular Activities. Pupils augmented their 21st Century competencies of being a confident speaker through their interactions with the public, being a self-directed learner through their planning and setting up of the booths, and were concerned citizens and active contributors through their efforts to make a difference through their efforts to educate the public on environmental issues.
The event was a resounding success and a truly enriching learning experience for both the pupils, parent volunteers and teachers who participated on this inspiring occasion.
