Saving on the curriculum

It has been estimated that schools across the UK could save up to pound;60 million through better energy management. Action Energy has produced a guide to explain the whys, hows and wherefores. The booklet emphasises the need for a whole-school approach while pointing reassuringly to the fact that effective change need not be revolutionary or high-tech. Case studies from several kinds of school show how planning and monitoring can involve quite small children, getting them to spot flickering lights or dripping hot taps. There's a curriculum bonus, too, in activities such as interpreting graphs or applying classroom science to a real and threatened world.
