EURONET 50/50 PROJECT REPORT 2012-2013 (June 2013)

During the last school year we reported to the School Community about the project. Then, we asked for some light meters to theTown Hall’s Environment Department to do the first lights test during the cultural week of the school. But we didn’t start officially the project until the first term of this year.

  • We did a teachers meeting to talk about Euronet . The teacher in charge of the project told to the rest of the teachers that their implication was very important and they agreed. 
  • The Project was introduced to the School Board and they chose a representative  of the parents.
  • The school team talked to the non-teaching staff (janitor, cook, cleaners) and they join the project too.
  • Creation of the school’s Energy Committee integrated by 8 students (from 5th and  6th grade), the teacher of the 3rd keystage, the head teacher, a representative of the parents and the janitor. In the meeting they review the aims of the project and there are some suggestions.
  • There is a meeting with the Town Hall and other schools in order to lay the groundwork  to start the project in the four schools.   
  • We send an email  with some requests to the Town Hall. (As we said in the meeting on 16th October, we sent you the most important school needs):
    • First, as the more important thing it is necessary that you come to school to do the audit. We need this information to plan  the project in the correct way. 
    • It is required that a technical expert visits the school in order to do an “energy tour” around the school with the representatives of the students and the teachers.  We are going to make suggestions to the expert and he is going to tell us if they are possible or not.
    • Second, we need a minimum of  2 digital thermometers with one day of memory, because  we want to pass the data to the computer in order to do the corresponding stadistics and then rethink about the project aims.
    • We ask for a grant to the Environment Department  so as to buy the devices needed to measure the light of each room and the electricity outgoings.
  • Energy monitoring of the school with the auditor and the teacher in charge of the project. 
  • Energy  tour around the school with the auditor and the Energy Committee (students and teachers).

  • We get the lights data from all the rooms of the school with the Energy team. Bellow we show the results:

  • Collecting suggestions from each class  about what can we do to save energy. 
  • We create this blog.
  • We decide that all the classroom must have a laminated DIN-A sheet of paper with the tittle “We save energy” and the next advices:

    1. Take profit of the solar light and turn off the lights when is not needed
    2. Don’t open the windows neither the doors when the heating is working.
    3. Switch off the computers, the monitors... and unplug them at the end of the day.
    4. Close the windows when leaving the class.
  • We also decide that, depending on the results, we can take away some fluorescents. In some classrooms there are 16 fluorescents and we think that it could be enough with 12, taking away the ones that are near the windows.
    Finally, we are going to make some red and green “traffic lights” in order to check if all the classrooms are folling the advices. So, one day  the Energy committee is going to check if all the computers are switched off, if all the windows are closed, if all the lights are turned off, or not.   
  • The “traffic lights” are done in an Arts&crafts lesson and the Energy Committee sticks velcro on the doors in order to put the red or the green traffic light.
  • The students of the Energy Committee go to each class and tell their classmates that any day they are going to make an inspection and the meaning of the traffic lights that they are going to stick on the doors.
  • The leftover fluorescents are taken away.
