Sciennes’ new energy watchdogs are taking the lead in improving our school’s impact on the environment.
Starting during Switch off fortnight, our watchdogs are encourage staff and pupils to make simple energy savings by: turning off lights and electrical equipment when they are not needed, and heating classrooms sensibly by adjusting radiators rather than opening windows.
Each year at Sciennes, we use a substantial amount of oil, gas and electricity to heat our school and pool, and light our classrooms.
Our energy watchdogs are hoping to reduce our carbon footprint, and the school’s bills, throughout the year by taking these simple steps. We are also working closely with experts at the City Council to try out other energy saving measures before they are rolled out to other City schools next year.
