Teacher testimonials for Energy Management courses
Read about what schools that have attended courses have to say about the experience:
‘I went in knowing nothing about how to manage my energy costs and was delighted to hear such basic tips for energy saving that I hadn’t thought of. I didn’t know how to monitor our energy use until I heard about the energy monitor so I am getting one. I learned how important it is to raise awareness and have staff, pupils and the whole community involved. I was delighted I decided to go as there are so many low cost things we can be doing to save money on our energy bills’.
Breda Murphy, Newcastle NS, Athenry, Co Galway.
‘I feel equipped to put together an energy management strategy for our school. I know how to make a plan and see opportunities to save energy. I feel confident to involve students to get stuck in and keep a check on meters for the school year’.
Michael O’Donoghue, Pobalscoil Neasain, Baldoyle, Dublin 13.
‘The course was very good, clear and practical. The visit to our school by an energy advisor was of huge benefit to me. The workbooks and resources were excellent. It was great to hear ideas from different schools’.
Deirdre McEnteggart, St Vincent’s School, Dundalk, Co. Louth.
‘I felt the workshop was full of practical ideas for reducing energy costs in school. It was very useful in highlighting the importance of monitoring and measuring the energy usage of a school as a tool for planning how to reduce costs. It was great to meet with other teachers, Board of Management representatives and facilities managers to talk about how things were working or not working in other schools. It gave a greater importance to the work being done by Green-School teachers on energy conservation as it highlighted the need for all businesses to conserve energy. The sample energy statement was great and the handbooks were very practical and useful.’
