That's right, Holy Trinity Primary School just held an all-day danceathon for solar! The Essex-based school is over halfway to raising £10,010 to get themselves some shiny carbon-cutting solar panels that’ll save the weight of an Argentinosaurus in CO2!
The kids at Holy Trinity have really been getting stuck in. They’ve been coming up with their own fundraising ideas: everything from a classic cake sale, to a sponsored maths challenge, to making handmade solar bracelets.
But, let’s not forget about the grown-ups. The Holy Trinity staff are as enthusiastic as the students – they have even given their logo and website a solar-makeover!
Dazzled by their efforts, we’ve crowned them our Solar Schools superstars!
Karl, Head of Computing, says:
“The greatest asset we have is the children's enthusiasm. Those £5 tiles bought with coppers collected with Grandma are only small, but along with the litter picks and the Tooth Fairy they show that the children care about the project and are passionate about it succeeding.”
If you'd like to support you can donate on www.solarschools.org.uk/holytrinityhalstead and get your face on a solar tile.
