At Solway we are committed to reducing our energy consumption and therefore reducing the amount of carbon pollution produced by the school.
Since establishing the Sustainability Committee in 2008, the school was lucky enough to be the recipient of a National Schools Solar Programme (NSSP) grant. This allowed us to purchase and install 44 PV solar panels (4.1kW system) on the roof of Brewer Hall.
Other activities to help reduce our energy consumption are:
Running a walking school bus and participating in regular ‘walk to school’ events throughout the year, with the hope of reducing the number of car trips to and from school
