This year, the 5/6 students undertook a data unit for maths. One group of students used the SWEP data that the Green Team set up. This data provides us with the actual energy and water usage of MPPS in real time. The students found that there were particular times when electricity usage spiked and provided a challenge for teachers and students to reduce their usage at those specific times. Please see the link to their powerpoint presentation for the results. Great work!
Welcome to the Moonee Ponds Primary School Green Team Blog. The Green Team is made up of four teams from Years 1-6 with a focus on Biodiversity, Energy, Waste and Water. We are working hard towards making sustainable changes to the school and are part of Environment Education Victoria’s Resource Smart Program. We are currently a 2 star accredited school and are rapidly approaching our 3rd star. We will be using the blog to keep the school and wider-community informed of our journey and will be posting updates on our progress, as well as tips to help others make more sustainable choices. Please feel free to follow us on our journey to making MPPS a more environmentally sustainable school.
