Cawston Primary Taps into Green Energy Fund

Wednesday 8 August 2018
As the heatwave continues across East Anglia many people are becoming more concerned about conserving water. Staff and pupils at Cawston Primary Academy have been awarded funds from the Sheringham Shoal community fund to do their bit to save water every day.

Thanks to a generous grant, obtained with the help of the Parish Council, the school has installed new efficient taps in the pupils’ toilets. These new taps mean that less water is used by the school.

Just before the end of term, members of the school’s ‘Eco-team’ gathered to celebrate the installation, and to thank the funders for their generosity.

Vice-chair of the governors, Revd Andrew Whitehead, said:

“As a Church of England Academy, the school tries to live by the values taught to the children. Christianity teaches us to respect and nurture the world, so saving water is something we should all be doing, and not
just in a heatwave. These taps help us to be an even greener school, and to show the children
that they can make a difference.”

Head-Teacher, Mrs Kay Swann, added:

“At Cawston CE Primary Academy we are working hard towards educating our pupils about sustainable living. We are keen to improve how we manage our use of energy and water so as to conserve our natural resources and cut energy costs. We are pleased that, thanks to the Sheringham Shoal community grant, we can now use
water more carefully.”
