Run regular energy saving assemblies to remind everyone in the school about the importance of saving energy. Here are some ideas of what you could share in your assemblies. Many of these suggestions link to another Energy Sparks activity, so you can score double points for your work:
- Hold an assembly to introduce the school to Energy Sparks and your mission to the rest of the school and the staff. You might want to show a short part of some of the videos here
Review the Energy Sparks energy usage charts for your school. Present some of the Energy Sparks charts in an assembly. Explain to pupils what the charts show in terms of the main uses of energy at your school, and ask pupils for ideas of how you could save energy. Use the assembly to present an action plan to reduce energy use. Present a follow-up assembly after a month to present Energy Sparks charts showing the change since the last assembly, and discuss further ways you could reduce energy use.
- Present some of the data you have collected at your own school, through your monitoring campaigns, for example:
