PFP Go Green Day 2016

PFP Go Green Day was held on 26 October 2016 with the aim of inculcating in students a sense of responsibility and good life habits.

The students were tasked to clean up the classrooms and corridors of T7, the teaching block for PFP students. With teamwork and co-operation, the students worked together as a class and transformed T7 into a cleaner and tidier environment for learning. In process, they learnt personal responsibility, social responsibility, and became more environmentally conscious of their learning spaces and surroundings.
