Earth Hour savings

Earth_Hour__result_Last Friday Team Green ran an Earth hour during period six in which all unnecessary electronic devices were (supposedly) turned off. This is part of the attempt to hold an earth hour on the last Friday of every month to conserve energy and cut down the schools power use. During this hour the average electricity consumption fell from 4.8 KW to 2.38 KW.

More Earth hours will be held on the last Friday of every month for the rest of the school year in order to raise awareness on the issue of energy use.

Our projects this term

Finalizing Paper Recycling

All the classrooms and offices in the school now have a green bin for paper. Yeah!
We now need to:

  • Laminate the posters and paste them onto the boxes
  • Write “Instructions for paper recycling”, to publish in the newsletter and paste on the walls of the classrooms.
  • Write some snippets in the daily notices to remind people about paper recycling.

Mac Team Green Campaign

We started to create a poster to say we exist and what we do. We will then put it up on the several boards of the school.

We also start to collect visual facts or striking articles to explain why sustainability is important and we will put these up on the boards too.

We have gathered 10 snippets from The Story of Stuff site  to publish weekly in the newsletter.
