Green Schools Action Day

Green Schools – “No Power Hour”

The Green-Schools Committee has been working very hard behind the scenes towards getting our 7th Green Flag, Global Citizenship: Energy. They have been raising awareness on how looking after our local environment helps people all over the world, whilst also looking into improvements in energy management in our school.

For their key issue, the committee is learning about Climate Change, which is now widely acknowledged as the biggest challenge facing our global environment. Climate Change can be described as a change in global and regional weather patterns over time.

We are had our Green-Schools Action Day last Friday, 21 st May, where pupils were invited to wear the colour green and each class had a ‘No Power-Hour’.

We encouraged all families to join us on the day for a ‘No Power-Hour’ at home or at work

Our planet and electricity bills could sure do with the help. Thank you all for your support!

“Lights Out”

As part of the launch, we introduced our “Lights Out” initiative where we encouraged all classes to turn the lights off in toilets and classrooms when they are not in use.

The Green Schools Committee will be doing regular checks over the next month to see which classes will take the prizes of popcorn and a movie. Certainly a nice incentive for looking after our planet.
