One Person, One Flower Scheme

To promote a green culture among our students and arouse their interest in horticulture, St. Paul's College has joined the "One Person, One Flower Scheme", organized by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. This is one of the many initiatives launched by the College Campus Improvement Team for this academic year.

With the help and support of the Integrated Science Department, our Form One students have planted in small pots a total of 165 seedlings of the species, Ruellia coerulea, also known as the Mexican Petunia. The plant has purple flowers when in full bloom.

As you may have already noticed, the total number of the seedlings planted has a significance to it. The number aptly matches and represents the 165 years of fine education provided by St. Paul's College.

Do visit the seating area in the upper playground, where you will see some of these beautiful pot plants. Also, click here to find out more about the plant species.
