No Energy Day-June 14th 2019

On Friday 14th 2019, we had a “No Energy Day” at CETNS. We didn’t turn on the lights or use technology or electricity all day long. Different classes along with the Green Committee took the meter readings at various stages of the day. We are in the process of comparing results with a “normal energy” day where we turn on the lights, use IWB’s (Interactive Whiteboards), i-pads, chrome books, photocopiers and laminators in our daily lives at school. It will be interesting to see how much electricity and money we saved on our “No Energy Day”.

On Friday, we had a day of fun where we embraced the outdoors, played board games, hockey, hurling, Cluichi Gaeilge (Irish word games), jigsaws, listened to stories, did some gardening, Free Writing, Free Drawing, “Stretch and Grow” in the castle field, old fashioned games like hopscotch and elastics. Remember “ England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales…”

Well done to all the parents, staff and students who got up that bit earlier to walk, cycle, scoot, car-pool or Park and Stride at the Arches on Friday to help save energy and look after our environment. Please try and keep it up for the rest of the term and next year also.
