Energy Week 21st – 25th September 2015

Posted by admin on September 21, 2015 in News with Comments closed |

This campaign was organised with the aim of making both students and teachers more aware of our energy consumption…how much we use and how we waste it and how we can reduce it.
To this end the Council put up energy posters all over the school and elected an
energy rep for every class in the school whose responsibility it is to ensure that all
computers and light switches and any other electrical appliances are powered off
after last class every day.Also eye-catching photos of some teachers in school were put up in classrooms to give an extra reminder.

Mrs. Battery is patrolling the corridors to enforce turning off of equipment.

Tá obair charthanachta an-thabhachtach don Comairle i gColáiste Choilm. Chuile bliain déanaimid iarracht airgead a bhailiú ar son carthanachtaí sa cheantar.

i mbliana d’eagraíomar ócáid tiomsaithe airgid le haghaidh Cumann Naomh Uinseann de Pól. Chuaigh daltaí ón gCéad bliain ar thuras chun na pictiúrlann. Chonacadar ‘Nativity 2 – Danger in the Manger’ agus bhí lá den chead scoth acu. 

Bhailíomar 550 euro agus sheachadamar an seic do Des Hickey, cathaoirleach an chumainn i mBaile an Chollaigh

We are currently in the throes of organising an energy awareness week in the school.
This campaign was very effective last year and managed to bring down the schools
electricity costs. Each class will have an energy awareness representative, who will
make sure light and electronics are switched off when not in use. Watch out for some interesting energy awareness posters during that week.
