Today is 'Switch Off Friday'. Its aim is to use as little energy as possible in school today and over the weekend. Pupils and staff will be playing their part:
1. Don't turn the lights on unless you have to (or they turn on automatically, unfortunately).
2. Keep blinds open.
3. Turn the lights off when you leave the room at lunch time etc.
4. Goodbye Standby! At the end of the day, turn off your computer, monitor, projector, speakers, printers (at the plug if possible) for the weekend.
5. Be aware of Eco-spies!
Pupils can also play their part at home - by not leaving lights on or electrical goods on standby. And by not leaving a mobile phone pluged in if it is already fully charged. Pupils could ask parents for pocket money for the amount they're saving on the electricity bill!
Why not do the Home Energy Check to find out the overall energy efficiency of your home.
Thanks for your co-operation, the Eco-Committee.
