Classroom lights steer study mood

The Ministry of Education and Avondale college are trialing a new lighting system which lets the teacher set the mood for learning at different times throughout the school day.

Normal - regular classroom activities

Energy - early morning or after lunch

Focus - concentrate on challenging tasks

From our first month taking part in Torque IP's EMAS programme,  we were able to make savings, and student response was very positive. We all enjoyed the fact that we were working together to create a more energy efficient atmosphere at RGHS. Monthly outcomes were also proving to be financially positive for the school, which became another beneficial factor.
