The Science and Ecological Learning Centre was permanently closed from September 2013 as the land was reclaimed by the government for housing construction. Parents, students and teachers regretted the closure of the park. The school subsequently obtained support from the HK Electric Clean Energy Fund to set up a solar-powered aquaponic system on the campus.
The aquaponic system is installed in a greenhouse built from discarded plastic water bottles. The installation showcases how the concept of zero carbon emission can be utilized in the agriculture of edible fish and plants to inspire ideas of sustainable development in students and parents.
