Dunsford School has been working closely with Resource Futures to try to reduce our energy consumption at school.
We have an elected Eco Councillor from each year group who help to ensure that electricity is not wasted by turning off unused lights, computers and whiteboard screens, etc.
The children in Class 3 have been so successful that we have almost managed to halve our day time electricity use (the best out of all of the schools participating in this scheme this year). Before we started saving energy it cost us on average £8.89 per day. When we started saving energy we spent £4.64 per day, that is a saving of £4.25 per day!
As a school we have already been awarded the Bronze Eco Schools Award and have just received our Silver Eco Schools Award.ecosilvercertificate
