Our Rainwater Harvesting Tank is saving us a huge amount of water and helping to reduce our water bill. Rainwater travels down roof, into the gutters and flows down into a large concrete tank that is buried underground. This tank has a pump and a special U.V. filter that filters the water before re-entering the school. The water is then pumped to the toilets and wash-basins. In Glenmore N.S. we are constantly trying to reuse our natural resources and reduce waste.
Each classroom embraces a recycling ethos where we separate our paper, cards and plastics into the recycling bins. Compost matter enters our brown bins and then is put into our composter outside. Thank you to our Student Council who lead the way in our recycling duties each each week.
The staff and students of Glenmore N.S. always make every effort to reduce our energy consumption. Heating using is continuously monitored and turned off when not needed. Lights and whiteboards are turned of at each break time. Low energy lighting has been installed inside and outside the school building. Plans are in place to install solar panels on the school building to further reduce our energy usage in 2024.
