Pioneering in 2022, iGrow@IJ is a new CCA at IJ which aims to bring awareness of the need to nurture sustainability practices among students as inhabitants of our planet. Through various activities and workshops, students will foster an understanding of how to champion environmental causes and thereafter become stewards among their peers, influencing them to do the same.
iGrow@IJ offers a wide range of hands-on activities for students to participate in, such as mending designated plots of the school garden and subsequently a hydroponics farm, learning how to manage composting processes as well as other upcycling and advocacy or outreach activities which members will participate in and subsequently lead within the school. Members of this club will also have opportunities to explore the biodiversity in and around the school and conduct regular data collection, playing a part in contributing to a larger pool of information about urban biodiversity in Singapore.
iGrow@IJ welcomes all students with a passion and interest for environmental stewardship and provides an opportunity for students to deepen their own knowledge, understanding and appreciation for the natural world and it’s importance in our lives.
