Welcome to the Eco-Schools section of our website! At DBS, we are committed to promoting environmental sustainability and educating our community about the importance of protecting the planet. Our school is proud to be a part of the Eco-Schools programme, which encourages schools to take action on environmental issues and make a difference in their local communities. Through this programme, we are taking steps to reduce our impact on the environment, including reducing food waste, energy consumption, and paper usage, as well as educating our students about environmental issues and encouraging community engagement. Here, you will find information about our Eco-Schools initiatives, upcoming events, and ways to get involved. Together, we can make a positive impact on the environment and pave the way for a more sustainable future.
Meet the student-led Eco Committee at DBS! Our Eco Warriors are made up of a dedicated group of students who are passionate about environmental sustainability and are committed to making a difference in our school and community. The committee is responsible for leading and organising our Eco-Schools initiatives.They also work to educate their peers and the school community about environmental issues and the importance of conservation. The students on the Eco Committee are committed to making a positive impact on the environment, and are dedicated to creating a more sustainable future for all. They are the driving force behind our school’s Eco-Schools initiatives and we are proud of their leadership and dedication.
The Eco Committee at DBS has been working tirelessly to finalise the school’s Eco-Schools Action Plan. The plan outlines the specific steps that the school will take to meet the requirements of the Eco-Schools program and become a recognized Eco-School. The committee, made up of dedicated students who are passionate about environmental sustainability, has been working on the plan for several months, and it is finally ready to be shared with the school community.
The Action Plan includes goals such as reducing food waste by 20% by the end of the academic year, reducing energy consumption by 15% by the end of the academic year and reducing the use of paper at our school by 10% within the next two years. The committee has also planned an eco-conference during STEAM week that will include interactive workshops, guest speakers and an exhibition of student work.
The committee members were excited to present their plan to the school community and gather feedback. They believe that the plan will not only make a positive impact on the environment but also provide valuable learning experiences for the students.
The finished document can be found on the school website at this button. We encourage everyone to take a look and provide feedback. The committee is committed to making the plan a success and is looking forward to working together with the school community to make it happen.

DBS Eco Warriors conducted an Environmental Review to assess our school’s sustainability practices and identify areas for improvement. Using the review, we have developed an action plan to make our school more environmentally friendly. Our review aligns with the WWF Eco-Schools framework, which guides schools towards sustainable practices. Check out our Environmental Review and learn about our sustainability journey.

Denla British School introduces a new Litter Policy to maintain a clean and safe environment for everyone. Our policy prohibits littering on school grounds and encourages proper waste disposal in designated bins. Students will also be taught about the importance of keeping the school clean and the impact of litter on the environment during class. The school will promote the use of reusable water bottles and food containers, and encourage digital communication to reduce paper usage. To ensure the policy’s effectiveness, the school will occasionally organise litter pick-up campaigns and community service activities. The school will also collaborate with local authorities and organisations to raise awareness of the importance of keeping the environment clean. By working together, we can make a positive impact on reducing litter and preserving our planet for future generations. Please read our full Litter Policy for more information.
