Help us to make Landscove a greener, solar powered primary school

by Friends of Landscove School in Ashburton, England, United Kingdom

Help us...to help our school...to help our pupils...to a greener, more sustainable future

Friends of Landscove School (FOLS) has a great track record of providing financial assistance to our wonderful school for the benefit of pupils. We fund-raise through local events and grant applications and use the funds to support a wide range of projects such as school trips, a new school minibus and outdoor wooden play equipment.

FOLS is made up of parents of current pupils: we all live locally in the community.

This year the FOLS  committee wants to continue funding small projects but we also want to raise money for a larger project with your help. This exciting project is to...

Install solar photovoltaic panels on the school roof, a really bright idea!

Solar photovoltaic panels will provide an excellent long-term return on your generous donation through:

  • Generate renewable energy at the school for the first time;
  • Reduce the school's carbon emissions by at least4.21 tonnes per year;
  • Protect the school from rising energy costs in the future;
  • Generate the school at least £1,000 per year in electricity buy-back profits, right from completion of installation;
  • Allow the school to reinvest those profits straight back into education and welfare for all our children, and help our teachers;
  • Demonstrate a serious commitment to tackling Climate Change and its impact on our children's future;
  • Facilitating school green concepts and renewable energy workshops for pupils to raise awareness and their engagement with the project;
  • Fulfil the school Eco-Committee's objectives;
  • Help the school win an Eco-Schools coveted Green Flag Award by demonstrating clear impact & savings from solar electricity generation! [Landscove School has already achieved Silver Award status: for more information please go to https://www.eco-schools.org.uk/about/howitworks/the-awards/ ]
