MADLEY ECO TEAM are concentrating on hand washing
Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Our Eco team will be out and about in school making sure we all follow these steps to wash our hands properly.
Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the "Happy Birthday" song from beginning to end twice!
Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
We are very pleased and proud to announce that we have now had our Solar Panels installed after the initial suggestion came from our amazing young ECO Reps during a chat with the assessor when we were being inspected for our latest Green Flag Award.
The panels were installed during half term week, and there are 150 in total, which will generate a maximum of 43 kw/hour on a sunny day!
We will soon be taking delivery of a large screen which will be on display in the school corridor showing all of our data. We will be able to track the power generated, how much we have been able to pass onto the National Grid and how much we have used. From this information we can then calculate how much income we have generated.
We think you will agree that as an Eco School and holder of the Green Flag Award these solar panels are very much in keeping with the whole ethos of the school, and the Eco mantra, "Reduce, Re-use and Recycle!"
As a school our many thanks go to our Finance Governor Mr Lindley, who negotiated the finances with the LEA, also to Chair of Governors, Mr Johnson for enabling us to bring these plans to fruition, and as always our dedicated team of children.
