Starting on November 27th, we are starting our Switch-off Fortnight initiative to make our school more energy-efficient. It’s a straightforward plan with some cool activities in the mix:
Pupils Patrols in Classrooms: Our amazing pupils are taking charge! In the evenings, they’re going room to room, ensuring lights, computers, and projectors are switched off when not needed. It’s not just about saving power; it’s about creating a sense of responsibility and making a positive impact.
Eco-Friendly Classroom Competition: But wait, there’s more fun! Pupils are keeping detailed records of each classroom’s effectiveness in switching off at the end of the day.
Collaboration with Our School Team: Our dedicated school site team is right alongside us! They’re not just keeping the lights on—figuratively, of course—they’re helping us measure the impact. We’re comparing power usage during and after the Lights Out Fortnight to see how much we’re saving. Teamwork makes the dream work!
Why It Matters: Every small action adds up. Turning off lights and devices when not in use might seem simple, but it makes a big difference. It’s our way of contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly Moreton Hall.
Watch out for our next update on how Switch-off Fortnight is going.
