The Environmental Council spearheads environmental initiatives throughout STC and cultivates student engagement on wide-ranging topics such as biodiversity and water conservation. This year, the council is led by Solomon Lam (11D1).
Building on the foundations of past groups such as Encon and the namesake environmental council, the new environmental council has expanded recycling bins and composting, with plans to introduce several fundraisers and project expansions in the near future.
After collaborating with other ESF schools, we are also proud to release our initial future development goals, which can be accessed here.
We are proud to announce that all prior environmental groups have been reorganised into the new council to maximize efficiency, and we are proud to introduce members from all year groups. Recruitment policy and structuring have been improved, with 9 extremely talented and passionate students now comprising a leadership council, which will set overall direction for environmental action in Sha Tin College. There are also 8 deputies from younger years to ensure a smooth transition and continued environmental action. A special advisor has also been appointed.

Their passion and abilities has inspired me to work harder, and ensure that with this new transition we begin a new phase of progress!”
