Energy Action Day 2017


energy action day

As part of our Green Schools Energy Flag programme we will be holding a LOW TO NO ELECTRONICS DAY on Wednesday 15th March. Students, staff and parents are encouraged to use as little electronic devises as possible this day to save on non renewable energy. That means, staying off the computer, television, mobile phones, turning off lights, closing doors, wearing an extra jumper and doing as much as possible to save on energy.

Students will participate in energy saving investigations to create awareness of how important energy conservation is in our lives.

We are close to gaining our next Green flag for the school.

What we have achieved so far:

  • Sensor lights on PC’s
  • Sensor lights in classrooms
  • New energy saving lights in the school
  • Closing doors to retain heat.
  • Thermostats to ensure ambient temperatures.
  • Poster competitions to create awareness
  • Junk kouture, showing us how beautiful rubbish can be.

Thank you for your continuous support.

The Green-school Committee.
