Shekou International School (SIS) has been recognized as a "Green School" by the Education Department of Guangdong Province, a testament to its dedication to sustainability and ecofriendly practices. This award highlights the school's efforts to create a sustainable and environmentally conscious school environment, achieved through the collaborative work of students, faculty, and staff. A Green School is committed to sustainable development, incorporating environmental education and practices into teaching, learning, and management. This approach involves comprehensive environmental management systems and active participation from teachers, students, and parents. Under the leadership of Head of School, Mr. Harish Kanabar, SIS has adopted the Green School initiative as a critical strategy. Initiatives include forming a Sustainable Development Committee, which developed a three-year action plan for sustainability encompassing goals, timelines, campus improvements, and curricular integration. SIS's commitment to raising environmentally aware global citizens is evident in its curriculum. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are integrated into class units, and students engage in inquiry-based projects on ecosystems, biodiversity, and climate change. Hands-on experiences in rooftop gardens and vegetable plots further deepen students' understanding of environmental interdependence.

The school's dedication to an eco-friendly campus includes energy-efficient construction, external greening, and internal energy conservation efforts. Water and electricity usage is closely monitored, recycling bins are placed throughout the campus, eco-friendly paper is utilized, and a ban on single-use plastic and disposable items is enforced. Additionally, SIS has established 'Mian Fei Bay' at The Bay campus, a donation space for reusable items like clothes and toys.

These initiatives demonstrate SIS's commitment to fostering a cleaner, greener learning environment and contributing actively to global climate change efforts.
