STUDENTS at Marshland High School spent two days looking into how to make the school more energy-efficient.

They will run an energy-saving week across the whole school, during which they will seek to persuade staff and fellow students to change their energy habits.

Marshland High School’s Big Switch Week is 4th – 8th March. They are targeting a saving of 15% in relation to previous electricity meter readings.

A successful energy-saving week could lead to the West Walton school receiving £12,500 capital funding from Norfolk County Council, with students having a say in how it’s spent.

Norfolk County Council has a climate commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25% by 2013.
