Comments from teachers on the Panasonic-NEA ‘eco ideas’ Challenge

Anglo Chinese School
Overall, it was a wonderful experience. The students had learned so much and I was surprised that they could manage participants of various age groups in a competent and effective way.

CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School (Secondary)
The students have learnt to budget for materials, to work together to solve problems and how to reach out to others effectively to impart their knowledge on the environment.

Dunman Secondary School
The team members gained exposure by going out and promoting their projects to partnering schools and canteen vendors.

Teck Whye Primary School
The students have become more conscious of the environment. Now they go around preaching their school mates to be more environment friendly during assembly.

Meridian Primary School
Pupils worked very hard to succeed in finding ways to make their project more creative. The teacher was also motivated to work with pupil as well.

Si Ling Primary School
The team members have learnt to play their part and contribute their ideas to improve the project. They have learnt the importance of recycling waste into something useful.

It was an enriching experience for me and I enjoyed doing the project with the pupils. It also helped to raise the environmental awareness of pupils in the school.
