Ballingarry School To Take Part In Council Funded Pilot Project

Presentation Secondary School, Ballingarry has been chosen to be part of a pilot project which is funded by Tipperary County Council Environment Section. The project will see 4th year students, under the guidance of Tipperary Energy Agency, learn about energy audits, the importance of them and how to carry out an energy audit.

The 5 week project will see the students carry out an energy audit of their school and learn how to complete energy saving calculations and financial calculations. They will also research the different grants available and make recommendations for what can be done in their school. They will then present their findings at the end of the 6 weeks.

Presentation Secondary Ballingarry were the only school in the county to be chosen to take part in the project starting in September 2019. If the project is successful, it is hoped that it will be rolled out in more schools around the county from September 2020.

Check back here soon for more updates on the project.
