Look how happy being a Solar School makes you!
For a small school on the edge of Dartmoor, like Christow Primary, every penny counts. So why become a Solar School and fundraise for solar panels? Well, as one of their governors, Gavin Bloomfield says, "free electricity, a long-term income and reducing our carbon footprint - the question is why isn't everyone else?"
For Christow Primary solar panels are not just a great investment, but also a way to bring their community together to do something amazing. And everyone really has been getting involved, from an alumnus of a local school running their Facebook and Twitter publicity, to environmental group Greener Teign giving lots of their time to help out with the fundraising! Their mission for solar has also won the support of a local councillor, Jerry Brooks, who donated £5000 from his Invest in Devon fund.
For all of this fantastic fundraising we have decided that they deserve their moment to shine as our Solar School of the Week!
