Mr Tan Hong Ming, Section Head, Electronics Engineering, ITE College Central was awarded the 2017 NEA EcoFriend Award (Public Sector Category)

Mr Tan’s environmental passion has been the driving force behind many of the actions he took since 2013 to raise awareness on environmental issues among his colleagues and students in ITE College Central (ITECC), including leading eco tours in the school and designing learning activities for special needs children. This has been over and above his appointment in the Environmental Sustainability Initiatives Committee.
