Energy Conservation - Holy Family Eco School


At Holy Family P.S. we are making every effort to conserve energy and become as GREEN as possible.

We have registered the school as an eco school and we have partnered with St. Mary's Grammar school in our strive for energy conservation. We have also enlisted the support of Magherafelt District Council to help us meet our goals.

We aim to

  • Lower the level of waste
  • Increase the amount of recycling
  • Switch off all unused appliances
  • Lower our energy consumption

The reason behind the poster is to remind us all to switch off unused appliances, lights and to recycle all  that we can as we do our bit for world conservation. We have set up our Eco Team. This team will monitor how eco friendly we really are and take steps to ensure that we are focused on this issue. They are hard at work monitoring energy usage and perhaps wastage around the school.

A word from some eco warriors (P6B).......

Every week some of the ECO monitors go to KS1 and KS2 to see if classes can get more than 12 points in a week for saving energy during lunchtimes!  We wear ID passes to show we are ECO monitors. We work at lunchtime‚Ķ.

We award

  • 1 point if the lights are off in your room.
  • 1 point if the computers are off.
  • 1 point if you are not wasting heat in your classroom.
  • These all add up to a maximum total of 3 points per room.

The monitors in P6B are:

 Ciara Malcolm, Emma Mc Ateer, Monika Mockeviciute, Julia Kowolska Darragh Madden , Conor Mc Cann, Jack Lavery and  Cianan  McCann.
