St Leo's Catholic - 3 kW

St Leo's Catholic School is a small Catholic School in Devonport, providing a quality education for children in Years 1-6. The school has a rich history which was founded by the Mercy Sisters in 1893.

At St Leo's we follow the Mercy Values of; Panekiritanga - Excellence, Aroha - Compassion, Manaakitanga - Hospitality, Te Tapu o Tangata - Respect, Rato - Service and Tika - Justice. Within our caring and nurturing atmosphere, Mercy Values are taught and lived, and a concern for others and caring for our environment is expected.

With the support of Genesis Energy we will strive to learn how to become more sustainable in our energy use. We will show manaakitanga and te tapu o te tangata towards each other and our environment, as we take on the responsibility of helping our environment through renewable energy use.

We are excited to be part of the Schoolgen programme where we can follow how much solar energy we are producing, and look at ways to become more energy efficient.
