£86,000 solar boost for Princess Frederica primary school
Children at a Kensal Rise primary school are celebrating a successful fundraising drive which, over the next 25 years, could see up to £86,000 savings for the school.
Princess Frederica CE VA primary school managed to successfully fundraise for £15,000 to install solar panels which will generate clean electricity, help cut the schools energy bills and bring in additional income to spend on school resources and equipment.
Beatrix Simpson, the school’s headteacher, said: “Solar panels will save us thousands on energy bills and cut out carbon footprint. Even more exciting though is the opportunity we now have to educate our children about how sunlight converts into electricity, about science and maths, and to become environmentally-aware citizens as they grow up."
The fundraising was led by Rachael Newberry, a local parent and school governor, who said; “It was nail-biting stuff. We were up to the wire and thought we had missed our target but throughout the project the whole community was right behind us. We went to Legoland, watched films at the Lexi, wore all yellow to school and ate lots of cakes - all for a good cause. The kids are all so proud they are a solar school."
The project was supported by the carbon-cutting campaign 10:10 and money was raised with parents, teachers, children, the PSA and several local businesses.
The launch event was attended by the Mayor of Brent and the Leader of the Council, Councillor Muhammed Butt who said: "It is fantastic that Princess Frederica is a 'solar school' and that our young people are helping Brent become a greener borough. Our Council is committed to playing its part in tackling climate change and projects like this set an excellent example of the way we can all make a difference.”
Princess Frederica is a multicultural school which nurtures Christian faith and behaviour. We promote excellence so every child is inspired to achieve. We provide enriching opportunities in a safe, caring and challenging environment where everyone is valued.
