- Keep Clean, Singapore!
On 18 May 2018, 1091 students and staff from the 3 ITE Colleges conducted community litter picking activities in the neighbourhood of the 3 Colleges in support of Keep Clean, Singapore! Joined by 32 community partners and volunteers, the group picked up close to 200 kg of thrash and collected close to 1800kg of recyclable items. This year the 3 Colleges also incorporated a recycling drive. Pamphlets were distributed to the housing estates in the neighbourhood a week before the event to inform them of this collection.
It is the 3rd year that ITE is supporting the ‘Keep Clean, Singapore!’ movement since 2016.
In 2016, all the three ITE Colleges took up the Public Hygiene Council’s Bright Spots Challenge. Since then, the four academic schools in each college take turn to organize Bright Spots litter picking activities involving at least 200 students each time. The ITE ESI committee hopes to inculcate good habits amongst the students in improving the cleanliness and hygiene condition of shared spaces. Bright Spots schedules and activities were regularly reported at the ESI committee.
