Three Sherwood Park schools have been given the chance to work on energy saving projects.
Through BP Canada’s A+ for Energy grant, $10,000 has been granted to Strathcona Christian Academy Secondary, Bev Facey Community High, and Woodbridge Farms Elementary.
“It is going to such a fun thing for our kids to be involved in,” says Woodbridge Farms Elementary Principal Sven Danzinger. “The learning and the growth that they get to experience because of this is, I think, going to extend far beyond just their regular schooling and their time here at Woodbridge.”
Woodbridge will use its grant to create play about energy, called “Energy: Past, Present and Future”, with the Evergreen Theatre as a project partner.
“As well, we are going to be creating booklets called the ‘Energy ABC book’,” says Woodbridge teacher Lynnette Newton. “And that will be provided through all of Elk Island elementary schools and Strathcona Library”
Bev Facey will use its grant to create charging stations that will be mechanically powered by stationary bikes.
SCAS will use the funds to help develop its aquaponics farm. tl/km
