Shirland Primary school began Switch Off Fortnight in impressive style by holding a lights off day followed by a Science/Energy Parent's Cafe.
Each class worked with only a few or no lights on all day. The Eco committee carried out a lunch time check to ensure all the lights and electronic equipment were left off when there was no one working in the classroom. They handed out a certificate to the joint first place winners, who were Class SB and the dinning hall.
In the afternoon parents were invited to come in early to school to join in with science/energy saving activities.
