Energy Saving Week – 2019 - Schools Challenge
Energy Saving Week took place in Northern Ireland from Monday 18th – Friday 22nd November 2019. During this week, we encouraged everyone to think about saving energy at home. The Eco Committee asked pupils in Year 2, 4 and 6 to take part in the Energy Saving Week schools challenge. This included
implementing small changes at home such as taking showers instead of baths, turning off lights and electrical items when not in use, turning down the thermostat and turning off the tap when brushing their teeth. Pupils were asked to record the activities
they completed throughout the week. The Eco committee then gathered the
results and sent them to the Energy Saving Trust. On account of our ‘amazing’ results, Moira Primary School has been identified as one of the top schools for saving CO2. On the certificate towards the end of this week’s newsletter you can see how much CO2 our children saved in just one week- we were able to save lots of carbon! Thanks to everyone who took part and keep up the great work!
