CWL have a fantastic time presenting to pupils of Kelloholm PS and Sanquhar PS - 6th April


Employees from Community Windpower Ltd (CWL) had a fantastic time recently providing educational school presentations to primary schools in Sanquhar and Kelloholm.

CWL visited Kelloholm Primary School in Dumfries and Galloway on Wednesday 2nd March 2016, to provide an educational presentation and interactive workshop to Primary 5 pupils on the topic of energy, electricity and waste. The presentation included hands-on activities to get the children involved and interested in these environmental topics.

On Wednesday 23rd March 2016, CWL visited Sanquhar Primary School in Dumfries and Galloway to provide two educational presentations to the pupils. The morning session was a presentation and interactive workshop focused on renewable and non renewable energy to Primary 6 and Primary 7 pupils.  The afternoon session was a presentation focused on waste minimisation to Primary 5 pupils.

Both days were excellent with the children asking really good questions on the topics and getting involved with the interactive ‘build a wind turbine’ activity.

The presentations were arranged in conjunction with the Company’s consented Sanquhar Community Wind Farm project which is currently under construction. The children at both schools greatly enjoyed participating in the presentations and workshop, donning hard hats and high-visibility jackets to build a model wind turbine, as well as asking good questions on energy, waste reduction, recycling and how wind turbines works.

Community Windpower are committed to developing close working relationships with local communities and local schools, offering the wind farm as a local resource which people will see as a local asset. Our educational support for schools and their pupils in the Sanquhar, Kirkconnel and Kelloholm area is part of an ongoing commitment to our local host communities with a Working Partnership already in place between the Company and Sanquhar Academy.

Educational environmental presentations are also available for local after school clubs, youth groups, adult groups and any other community groups as desired by the group leaders and members. Topics for the presentations can be on any subject related to the environment and are not limited to wind energy, but can include all types of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, climate change, recycling, the environment, sustainability and Eco-Schools initiatives.
