Solar Buddies Making a Difference

During Term 2, Mrs Temov’s Year 7 English class studied the novel The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, an autobiography by William Kamkwamba. The book helped them to explore the issue of poverty in Malawi and inspired students to look for ways to help others living in energy poverty. Through The Solar Buddy Project, the class built solar torches for students in other countries, to use in place of kerosene lamps. We have recently received a report that includes photos of the children in Papua New Guinea who have received the torches. We feel extremely proud of the contribution that our students have made to other children’s lives and to their education. Well done Year 7 students!
