Today, the children came back inside the school building after their break to find that all of the lights, interactive whiteboards and computers had been switched off by members of our Eco Committee. This was to raise awareness of Switch Off Fortnight. We were hoping for a cloudier day when we switched the lights off, because we wanted to experience what it would be like to try and learn in the dark as some children in the world have to. Although some classrooms ended up being darker than others, all the children in every class took time to think about the value of energy in our daily lives and discuss the effects of having no electricity. We're all ready (even the teachers!) for our 'No Interactive Whiteboard Day' on Monday!
