Students at Holy Trinity National School, Fethard, held an energy themed dress-up event on February 6 as part of their Energy Flag Campaign.

Imaginations were fired and the response was exciting from all classes from Junior Infants to Sixth Class with pupils showing great enthusiasm and innovative ideas.

The energy saving campaign has inspired great interest in the students and their parents who are showing great initiative in the management of the whole project. Great efforts are being made to rethink and reduce the usage of oil and electricity in our everyday life. In school we have adjusted and improved our lighting system, turned down our heating, scrutinised our power bills, monitored bad practises such as doors being left open, appliances being left on standby and so on.

The children now recognise that there is even more scope at home to monitor, adjust and improve the use of power. Some of the improvements - are having a shower instead of a bath; wear warm clothes in cold weather; have meals together (one full swoop); boil kettle once rather than three times etc.

The children have taken on this campaign with great diligence and we look forward to working further towards the acquisition of our second Green Flag.
