Energy Awareness Statement and Activities

Our school is dedicated to implementing energy efficient practices, recognising that this is essential to provide a leading example to our pupils and the wider community.
We are committed to the following:
• Setting annual energy savings targets
• Continual improvement in reducing our energy usage
• Complying with all energy and other legislation
• Minimising the impact that our energy use has on the environment
• Communication of our energy statement and energy programme to all staff, students and parents
• Ensuring suppliers and contractors are aware of our energy practice

We reviewed our Energy Awareness Footprint and Statement in the Academic year 2016/2017 and have continued to work and be mindful of our energy awareness and compliance to date.
Work still continues in the Academic year 2018/2019. An Poster Competition was held for Form 1 Students, sponsored by Ms. Wright. The standard of entry was extremely high and there were novel and creative items transparent in the posters. All posters will be displayed in the school over the coming months.

1C winners: with Ms Glynn and Ms Wright: Andrew McAdam, Hannah Potts & Sarah Taylor April 2019.
