Organisation Description

The Frederick Smith Secondary School (FSSS) Environmental Club has been in operation as an extra-curricular activity since 2008. Meetings are held every Tuesday with a current total membership of 31 student members.

The Environmental Club provides students with the opportunity to be part of an extra-curricular activity which is geared towards the promotion of environmental education and the protection of our natural environment in a more hands-on and fun-filled way.

Ongoing Projects

The FSSS Environmental Club has embarked on several projects mainly focused on promoting the 3 R's concept of waste management; reduce, re-use and recycle with an added thrust in the area of upcycling. These include:

1. Construction of a coral reef diorama

Students will be using recyclable materials such as old exam papers, cardboard, mesh wire and styrofoam to create a life size model of a coral reef. This will also include several fish species and other marine life resident within the coral reef ecosystem. On completion it is envisaged that the diorama can be displayed at any national scientific exhibitions or competitions. It will also be used as a valuable visual aid and teaching tool for students studying the coral reef ecosystem.

2. Papercrete Construction Material

Papercrete is a type of construction material made from a mixture of re-pulped paper, cement, sand and water. Papercrete has been widely used in a variety of ways including: The benefits of papercrete include: 3. Tree Planting

The students took part in several tree planting ceremonies to celebrate Arbor Day.

4. Fish Pond and Nature Corner

The Environmental Club is responsible for the maintenance of two fish ponds and nature areas.

We engage in activities such as outdoor evangelism, quizzes, bible study, fun activites as well as socials. The club also participates in zonal as well as district activities. Guest speakers are sometimes invited.

The members of ISCF are predominantly boys.

The theme of the ISCF is:
"To know Christ and To Make Him Known"

Caciques Club

The Caciques Club was first started in 1991 by Soroptimist International of Jamestown at the then St. James Secondary School, now Frederick Smith Secondary. The Soroptimist desires to improve the lives of underprivileged and disadvantaged persons especially adolescents and women; and to help develop them so that they can make productive contributions to society. Therefore, the Caciques Club was founded to help achieve this goal. The word Caciques is a Spanish word meaning chief, ruler or leader. The Caciques Club engages the students in a number of activities including craft, tie-dying and dancercise; community outreach programmes like Christmas caroling, public speaking, tours to places of interest and leadership retreats.
