For a long time, the unwritten green policy has guided the decisions of NJC. When the College moved from its original Linden Drive campus to its current location on Hillcrest Road, much care was taken to build the teaching and learning facilities around the existing old trees. Up til today, the beloved Grand old lady Raintree still stands and the Raintree cafe is named after this tree that is an icon at NJC. An arborist comes every year to check on the health of the trees. We all know that NJC is a home to a family of hornbills, a number of koels, orioles and sunbirds. In fact there are more than 70 species of birds that make their home in NJC throughout the year. A book by Mr Greenlink Club teacher Yong Ding Li and a group students (“Yours Naturally”) document these birds.
All this is to say, that behind the National Junior College Green Policy, there are people who love and strive to protect the environment in which NJC resides.
