St. Fergus’ National School: are currently working on their second Green Flag. The theme is ENERGY. We have begun a SWITCH IT OFF campaign. You can get involved at home too! Tips: 1) A TV in standby mode can use up to half as much energy when it is switched on. Save energy by switching appliances off. 2) Keep doors closed in your home to prevent heat loss. 3) Turn the thermostat down by 1 degree to save up to €15 per year. 4) At night, close blinds and curtains to prevent heat loss. LET’S BE ENERGY EFFICIENT.
