Local primary school takes part in energy day thanks to E.ON

By NaomiTroy

Pupils from Morven Park Primary School in Kirkby-in-Ashfield
have had the opportunity to learn all about energy as part of a special day organised
by E.ON.

During the day all 500 pupils at the school took
part in E.ON’s energy educational programmes.
Activities included Foundation pupils learning how to generate electricity
by pedalling a specially adapted bike, pupils reading energy related books with
support from E.ON volunteers and the Year 4 pupils working with fictional
characters ‘Smart Alec’ and ‘Neon Bright’ to solve energy challenges as part of
E.ON’s Smart Kids programme.

The day ended with a school sing-a-long about
energy and how to save it which was performed by Year 6 pupils.

E.ON UK Chief Executive Tony Cocker attended the energy
day and said: “At E.ON, we believe it’s really important to help people of all
ages understand more about where energy comes from, how it’s used and how it
can be used efficiently. Our energy education programmes offer pupils the
opportunity to learn about energy in a really fun, engaging and practical hands-on
way.

“So far this year, we’ve visited over 120 primary
and secondary schools across the country with our educational programmes and by
the end of the year we’ll have reached over 13,000 school pupils. Having the opportunity to visit Morven Park
Primary School and see how engaged and enthusiastic the pupils are in learning
about energy has been a truly inspiring and uplifting experience.”

Mark Watson, Head Teacher at Morven Park Primary
School, said: “We’ve really enjoyed having E.ON coming along to our school for
the day to teach us all about the different aspects of energy in a fun and
interactive way. The educational programmes offered by E.ON give our pupils the
chance to learn important messages about saving energy in a way that’s sometimes
hard to teach in a traditional classroom environment.

“We’ve been working with E.ON for over 10 years now
and throughout this time their support has had a massive impact on our school
environment and our pupils and we look forward to continuing to work with them in
the future.”
