The Eco Committee had a very productive term discussing how we can save energy and reduce our carbon footprint. Changing peoples’ behaviour so they live more sustainably is no mean feat, but their work is paying off and gradually our recycling is improving, lights are being turned off when people leave the room, and less heat is being wasted.
In September the Keen4Green competition was launched. Each House strives to improve its energy saving and recycling quality compared to an average of how it did over the last three years. Points are earned on savings made and the top three points earners each half term win cash prizes for the House fund. There is also a grand prize to be awarded at the end of the year. Bonus points are available for innovative ideas which are put into practice anywhere on site, and for mini competitions held.
