Green Team Save a Fortune At Colaiste Iosagain !

Green Team go from Strength to Strength at Colaiste Iosagain , Portarlington .

While we are all aware of the need for savings in fuel bills and greenhouse gas emmissions , it can be quite a chore to turn off the lights everytime when leaving a room or make sure windows and doors are always shut .The actual reduction in gas and electricity running costs can also be relatively hard to detect .All the more amazing so is the fact that Colaiste Iosagain , Portarlington saved in the region of a a third on gas and a quarter on electricity over the last year or two .Most of the credit for this must go to German language teacher , Ms. Morris and her ‘Green Team’ .Having gained the coveted Green Flag for the school after a number of years of hard graft in the area of recycling ,the Green Team must maintain their efforts with an ongoing drive to reduce the schools energy usage .Students and teachers are asked to keep all unnecessary electrical equipment turned off ,pcs must be powered down at day’s end ,if its not too dark only half or even a third of the classrooms’ lights are used,windows and doors are kept shut as much as is practical etc etc . ‘Reminder’ stickers are used where necessary when ‘waste’ is found -a very rare occurence nowadays!
