Switch It Off Fortnight

switchMeadows Eco Council have been busy holding 'Switch It Off Fortnight'.

We met with the ‘Energy Manager’ from BAM, who run our school building, to find out he uses computers to control the heating and some of the electricity in the school. With his help we decided to have a competition to see who could be the best Eco Class and Eco Teacher in remembering to ‘Switch It Off’ when they weren’t using appliance and lights in the classrooms.

Our Eco Councillors worked with Parkside Middle School Eco Council to set up an Energy Event for parents and children to come along to. We were helped by Act On Energy who came along with an electric car and a thermal camera, and Worcestershire County Council and Worcester Bosch who provided free books and thermometers for everyone, to help them find out more about saving energy at home. It was a great success with lots of children and adults coming along.
