The Pod's Switch Off Fortnight

School Examples

Saint James Church of England Primary School, Wigan

As part of Switch Off Fortnight the Eco-Committee decided that each class would have a light monitor. Initially the class Eco-Committee member took this role, so whenever the children were leaving the classroom they would stand at the back of the line and turn off the lights. As the months went by, other children wanted to take on this role, so each week the class teacher would choose another child to do the job. In the end, each child was involved in turning lights off and saving energy. Switch Off Fortnight stickers were put next to the light switches, so that whoever leaves the classroom last now remembers to turn off the lights.
