Thank you to all those parents who were able to support the P&F fundraising Masquerade Party last weekend. All money raised from this event as well as from our Walkathon earlier in the year is going towards the construction of solar panels. We are roughly at the half way point of the required $42,000 to make this project a reality.
The electricity that the school currently consumes results in 76 tonnes of carbon dioxide being emitted into the atmosphere annually. That is equivalent to 380 kg of carbon dioxide per school child per year. The proposed solar system will reduce the carbon footprint of the school by around 47%, nearly halving our carbon footprint. The reduced electricity usage will also be of financial benefit to the school, saving the school thousands of dollars a year in electricity charges.
Every little bit counts!
