Earth Hour Saturday 28th March

Earth Hour will be promoted in next week’s newsletter.

7000 cities and towns in 152 countries have already committed to take part
in Earth Hour 2015. This is an event to highlight people’s concern about
the future of the earth.

This global event raises awareness for the need for us to use less electricity so
we can reduce greenhouse gases which are causing global warming and
climate change.

At St Michael’s we will be takig action next week to
reduce our school’s electricity use for at least one hour by turning off
our computers, photocopiers, non-essential lighting and interactive white
boards. This will integrate beautifully into our next Term’s inquiry into
Science.

We would like families to join us by turning off lights and trying not to
use electricity for one hour from 8:30- 9:30 pm on Saturday 28th of March.
