Eco Warriors - Tomorrow's Leaders for Sustainability

Posted on 10 May 2016

By Mikaela and Angelina, Year 3/4

This term the year 3/4 classes have been looking at energy saving. We've learnt how to save energy when not using it. We get energy from underground which is called non-renewable energy like coal. I learnt that we will eventually run out of coal and we need to be prepared before this happens. I also learnt that there is a machine which is put under ground and collects the coal. It goes through the pipes which lead to our houses.

Things you can do: when it's cold, close the door so the heat doesn't get out. When it's hot, close the blinds and open the windows instead of using the air conditioner.

We had a lot of fun learning about energy.

The Eco-Warriors got together and we created an Action Plan:

We all play a role in the energy action plan!
  • Students are in charge of turn off as Power Rangers and Computer monitors
  • Staff ensure at the end of day and before school holidays regimes are in place for turning off electrical equipment
  • The Green Team tracks our energy bills and keeps our policies up to date

What our parents & students say

"I have been a part of the St Columba's community now for over 30 years. First as a pupil, then as a staff member at Before and After School Care, and now as a parent. My children are thriving here now just as I did."
