Solar power

Late last year our Enviro team applied to Schoolgen to become a Wellington Schoolgen school.  If successful, this would result in Genesis Energy, in conjunction with  Wellington City Council, providing and installing eight solar panels at our school.   Inspection of the roofs of all our buildings revealed that the top block is the only option for solar panels to be installed; it is strong enough, it has the correct pitch and of course is in sight of the sun.

According to Principal Liz Patara, our senior students Stella McGuinness, Ella Wipatene and Millie Rea presented some very persuasive arguments when they delivered their presentation to the Schoolgen team who were impressed with the enviro initiatives which have already been instituted in the school.  We hope their sales pitch reaps rewards!
