Middle Harbour Public School hosted the first Zero Emissions Schools Network meeting of 2023. It was great to hear about all the great things they are doing and see first hand their recycling station that won them third prize at the Taronga Zoo event last November. They also shared their 2023 plans and heard about their Power Off, Earth On initiative. This initiative tries to include a 40 minute learning session outside every week and try not to use any electricity. School wide that equals 800 minutes! Well done Middle Harbour Public School!
We also had guest speaker Dennis Hensman present to us from Optimum Control Technologies. We learned how live energy data can help you see problems in your schools energy consumption and pinpoint ways you can save money and energy.
It was great to see participation from all the area schools including: Queenwood School for Girls, Redlands, Mosman Prep, Beauty Point PS, Blessed Sacrament, Sacred Heart, Mosman PS and Middle Harbour PS!
