Why ? Why do we need an eco-friendly campus? An environmental-friendly school campus refers to a green school or eco-friendly school created , maintained and enjoyed by the joint / collective actions of the whole school community to save natural resource and minimize pollution. Principles of being eco-friendly Respect Respect God’s creation. Re-use Use whatever is reusable Organize a bazaar to exchange unwanted things Reduce Reduce the harmful effect caused by pollution and waste of natural resources Repair Replace Replace non-green products with green products Responsibility We should have a sense of responsibility Recycle Encourage using recyclable green products ( such as stationery supplies.

What can be saved Infrared sensor operated No more leaky water taps. Save water! Does your school have these things ? Natural resources include water energy What kind of water ? from flush water from water taps Where ? in our school toilets What kind of energy electricity For example : used by air-con computers and lights How ? When they ( air-conditioners, lights , computers, printers) are not in use we should turn them off. Besides, we should use energy-saving light bulbs and computers . In addtion , we can re-paint the walls using suitable colours to reflect most light , and so we can brighten the classrooms and save energy. Over use of air-conditioning What is being wasted? Do you wear these in the classroom while enjoying air- con in summer? Be mature! Be sensible! Accept your body development Stop playing basketball 5 min. before lunch Or use Lose weight by another eating healthily material ? Boys should respect girls. The temperature of the air-conditioners should be adjusted to 25 °C To save water , we can use infrared sensor operated faucets / water taps to replace leaky water taps Furthermore we can use modern water closets with dual flush device which allows users to choose the volume of discharge , such as half-flush or full-flush . Toilet / Water closet with dual Flush device 來也匆匆 Half flush Full flush 去也沖沖 Save water ! Two buttons to control the volume of discharged water for flushing the toilet School refurbishment Half flush Full flush Save water ! Two buttons to control the volume of discharged water for flushing the toilet School refurbishment To reduce tree cutting , we should use less paper by printing on both sides of the page. Many teachers don't mind if you turn in a paper like this-- just ask first. Bookmark / keep the data by using email Also, you can consider cutting down on the things your print out. Do you really need to print out that web page, or can you just bookmark it or keep it by using email? What’s more, we can use some handkerchiefs to replace paper tissue. What are those things that can pollute our school environment ? E.g. Lunch boxes made of foam rubber and non eco-friendly stationery products such as correction fluid , We should replace this kind of disposable lunch boxes, plastic chopsticks, spoons and forks. with washable and reusable products . Plastic bags Where ? Our school tuck shop The school or Student Union should advise our tuck shop to replace plastic wags with recyclable and hygienic brown paper bags. By simply reusing or recycling your Christmas decoration, wrapping paper and cards you will be able to help reduce the million tons of holiday garbage created each year. Printer ink Many printers have multiple settings or print quality. We can use the high high quality setting for things that have to look nice, but use the low quality setting for things that don't.

To save cost, we can buy recycled products (such as stationery supplies and the said) ulk energy-saving items ) in b____ ? aise Organize a walkathon to r____ money to buy these items . We can propose changes : A green school with Geothermal Heating and Cooling system How does geothermal heating and cooling work? We can prop____ School ose Refurbishment. Geothermal Heating and Cooling How does geothermal heating and cooling work? School Refurbishment Geothermal Heating & Cooling Geothermal systems transfer heat between the ground and a building. School Refurbishment Geothermal Heating & Cooling In the cooling mode they absorb heat from the building and transfer it to the ground. School Refurbishment Geothermal Heating & Cooling Typically they do this by circulating water through the ground and then through a heat pump. School Refurbishment Geothermal Heating & Cooling Conversely in the heating mode they absorb heat from the ground and transfer it to the building. School Refurbishment Whole-school approach to actualize an eco-friendly school We cannot work singlehandedly ; We have to work together to To conclude … implement / to actualize a green school School Refurbishment The Geothermal Heating and Cooling is a closed loop heat pump system with 384 bore holes, 450 feet deep located over the playing fields and parking lot and serves the high efficiency water source heat pumps located in the elementary wing. Energy recovery units re-capture exhaust air temperature to provide energy savings and comfort. Roof mounted photovoltaic panels generate a maximum of 25KW of electricity in a grid connected system. Power is also “Net-Metered” so that the school can benefit from selling electricity back to the Utility provider when excess power is produced. Atrium 天井 and stair light wells, as well as sunscreens, will be utilized to control the natural light into spaces. Daylighting systems reduce the need for electric light thereby lowering the overall electricity usage costs while allowing the air conditioning system to be reduced in size.
