SP Adopts Singapore River

SP has officially adopted the Singapore River as part of PUB's "Our Waters" programme.

The Green Movement in Singapore Polytechnic has just taken a giant step forward.

On 15 Jan, SP has officially adopted the Singapore River as part of PUB's "Our Waters" programme, an initiative which encourages organisations, schools or individuals to play an active role in caring for Singapore's reservoirs, reservoir parks and waterways.

Held in conjunction with the Singapore River Raft Race, the ceremony was witnessed by Prof Koo Tsai Kee, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Defence and Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources.

Even before the river was adopted, the SP Green Committee has played an active role in keeping the Singapore River clean.

Volunteers from the Environmental club and students taking the Character Development module have taken part in the river watch as well as a river patrol over the last three years.
