Conservation@Boarding Programme

Energy Conservation@Boarding aims to reduce energy usage amongst Enhanced-Boarders (Junior High students who stay for one term a year) at the NJC Boarding School, while promoting energy saving habits amongst the student body.  The conservation programme is conducted for all E-boarders. It is based on a buddy system between appointed Environment Advocates of classes and their fellow boarding mates. In this programme which lasts for a term – the duration of the cohort of E-boarders’ stay, mutual encouragement helps to move students towards the goal of energy conservation. A points system is put in place to determine the class/House that has made the most effort to conserve energy in this inter-class competition.

The Schedule of the Year is as follows:

2011
Term 1 – NIL
Term 2 – JH2
Term 3 – JH3
Term 4 – JH1

2012
Term 1 – JH4 (not the full 10 weeks)
Term 2 – JH2 (not the full 10 weeks)
Term 3 – JH3
Term 4 – JH1

2013

Term 1 – JH4 (not the full 10 weeks)
Term 2 – JH2 (not the full 10 weeks)
Term 3 – JH3 (not the full 10 weeks)
Term 4 – JH1  (not the full 10 weeks)

From the results of the monitoring by the Boarding School, students have developed the habit of switching off the lights and fans and exercise personal responsibility. So there is no longer a need for this programme and competition. It has served and fulfilled its purpose. We thank all students, boarding personnel and teachers for helping us in this endeavour.
