Last week, for the first time since we’ve had our solar panels fitted and just in time for Earth Day (www.earthday.org), the school reached the status of climate positive. This means, that for a 7-day period, our entire carbon foot print was more than offset by the solar energy we produced, and the extra energy was fed back into the national grid helping reduce additional carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere by large power plants.


As far as we are aware, Herne Bay Junior School is the first school in the Canterbury/Whitstable/Herne Bay area (and maybe even further afield) to achieve this so we feel very proud to be doing our bit to clean up the planet. We still have a long way to go to become climate positive 100% of the time but we are working hard to ensure we reach this goal. In the meantime, as we move into the summer months, we look forward to many more climate positive days and weeks.
