Green Flag – Energy Readings by Adam & Liam Rang a Sé

Liam Plower and Adam Dolan from 6th class here! We have been checking the energy meter every day for the past four weeks. For the last two weeks we have found that the average was 192.5 kW per day. We found that the highest day was 468 kW Due to the building of the new prefab and due to the Halloween holidays but now the usage has gone back to the average. Keep up the good work and keep saving energy.
Here Are Some Fun Facts On Energy
1. Every time you open the fridge door approximately 30 % of the cold air escapes. This leads to a higher electricity bill.

2. Approximately 75% of electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while the products are off. Keep appliances unplugged when it is not in use.

Team Hope – Christmas Shoe-Box Appeal

 Carrabane NS has worked with Team Hope for a number of years now. Team Hope deliver Christmas Shoebox gifts right into the hands of some of the world’s most vulnerable children – many of whom will receive no other gift this Christmas. For some it’s the first gift they’ve ever received.

Thank you to all the children and their parents  for sharing your Christmas with children who have so little – It means so much to them!!

See below photos of over 100 shoe-boxes ready to be handed over to Tom from Team Hope!!!
