Powered by Solar – From the Principal

Have you noticed the TV monitor above the GPR doors in the front hallway? Last week, students asked me to put on the ball game. But no, it is not for TV watching but rather it shows the amount of power that is being generated by the solar panels now installed on our upper roof. Last week on our sunny days we generated enough power back to the grid that could run a lap top computer for 78 days. The Minister of Energy and the Minister of Education are planning a visit shortly. More details will follow.

In the meantime, here are some shots of our resident solar panels and some others of the recent clean up on our Green Roof. Included is one of our rooftop peace sign – did you know it was there?
