Penang Green School Award is an annual environmental audit programme for both primary and secondary schools in Penang, launched by the Penang State Government in 2010. It aims to educate not only the students, teachers but also the communities within and around the school on the importance of environmental conservation and protection. The programme is a collaboration programme with both Penang Island City Council (MBPP) and Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP). We have a total of 241 schools that joined in this program this year.
