Pupils' hot project ticket
11:00pm Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
PENDOCK Primary School is the only school in Worcestershire to be selected for the national Solar Schools campaign.
Solar Schools helps schools to cut carbon and boost budgets.
The Friends of Pendock School are now looking to raise £9,000 for the project.
Sam White, of the group, said: “The Solar Schools project will provide us with lots of support to help us succeed.
“It uses an innovative fund-raising tool kit to help schools get money from their local communities.
“Parents, businesses and alumni can sponsor sections of the school’s virtual solar roof online, which then becomes a reality once the necessary cash is raised.
“Once we have raised enough to fund the installation, Pendock School will be able to generate its own energy and sell some back to the national grid for years to come.”
The school hopes to complete the project by spring 2013.
