St Anthony's, Seatoun - 4 kW

St Anthony’s Primary School (Seatoun) is a small school situated in the Eastern suburbs of Wellington catering for students in years 1-8. We are only a small school but we are known for our ‘can do’ attitude and our strong spirit.

Our commitment to lessening our carbon footprint can be seen in many ways:

All classes have facilities in the classroom for the recycling of paper and food scraps. These food scraps are deposited in the worm farm bin.

We have a committed Enviro Group that is responsible for the correct disposal of the waste in the classroom.

We are lucky enough to have a well-kept garden, which has provided us with some very tasty produce so far. Even the celery was a great hit.

Members of staff are always on the lookout for lights that have been left on unnecessarily. 

The icing on the cake was the recent installment of the Solar PV system from Genesis Energy! 
The children had great fun recording their amazing song about how to save energy (and money), being awarded the solar panels was a testament to their hard work, and that of the talented member of staff who wrote the song in the first place.
We are really looking forward to working out other ways that we can become more environmentally aware and more knowledgeable on our Green Journey
