On 9 April 2016, ITE student-volunteers participated in Changi Beach Area Cleaning to preserve the coastal environment of Singapore.
This event was organized by National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) Council and High Commission of Canada. The objective of this exercise is to provide opportunities for the Canadian community residing in Singapore to work with the local community to clean up the coastal area along Changi beach. It is also an excellent joined community opportunity for both the Canadian and Singapore communities to learn about the coastal environments and how we can play a vital role in keeping our beaches clean for all to enjoy.
We were grateful the organiser had extended the invitation to Community Volunteers to participate in this event and glad that ITE students had seized this opportunity to be engaged and involved in this meaningful social event.
The Coastal Clean-Up Community Project was jointly graced by Dr Mohammad Maliki bin Osman, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Defence and Mayor of South East District and H.E. Heather Grant, High Commissioner of Canada to Singapore.
