The Eco Council were set the challenge of reducing the energy usage around the school, after careful consideration and discussions they decided to run a ‘Switch Off Fortnight’.
This campaign was aimed at encouraging all members of the school to switch off electrical devices when not being used.
Along with Mr Johnson, the Eco Team measured the energy consumption of the school prior to ‘Switch Off Fortnight’. This was carried out over a 4 week period and the data presented in a whole school assembly.
Children were asked to remind teachers to switch off projectors, lights and screens during break times. The Eco Team went around the school to check this was being carried out.
A prize awarded to 4M for being the most energy efficient class. In order to carry on the energy saving initiative, the Eco Council set the school a challenge to design a light switch cover for their classroom to encourage everybody to turn off electrical devices.
The Eco Council would like to thank everybody for taking part in ’Switch Off Fortnight’ and producing such great designs for a light switch cover.
