Changing Skyline

The skyline at Hethersett High School has changed forever with the addition of a wind turbine on the school field. 

The 15 metre construction took just one day to put into place but will produce energy for future generations as well as being an education tool. 

When running at optimum levels, the turbine will provide enough wind energy in a year to provide power for three homes. 

The turbine has been in the planning stages as a school project for about four years and was featured on the recent BBC Look East’s School Report, part of a special day which saw children make and broadcast news across the country.    

The turbine will also help with numerous lessons at the school including maths and science. It cost over £34,000, but the energy will be sold to the National Grid and so the turbine will pay for itself within 15 years. 

“It is also very easy to see from anywhere in the school and will remind us of the school after we have left,” said pupils Avneet Kular and Kate Palmer. 

The school is also embracing more new technology by opening its own page on the social networking internet site Twitter. The school is available at www.twitter.com/Hethersetthigh
