The Run on Sun Fund committee is working with us to raise money so that we can have solar panels fitted on our roof. This will hopefully save school money as well as helping the environment. The money we save once the panels are fitted will be used to make our school building more environmentally friendly, develop our eco-schools work and evolve our environmental curriculum further.
Projects we are developing:
- forest schools
- eco-schools award
- garden to fork – growing our own food to use in school meals – we could even have our own farm shop!

The ‘Run on Sun Fund’, which is working to raise money for Glenaire Primary
School, so that it can install solar panels on its roof, has made great progress
since it was set up in 2016. We aim to provide the school with as many
panels as possible so that it can both save money and contribute to the
worldwide effort to reduce carbon emissions. So far, we have raised over
£8,000 from charitable trusts, businesses, voluntary groups, individual donors,
and of course, the school community itself. Many people have given
generously of both time and money, so we want to take this opportunity, not
just to bring friends of Glenaire up to date on our progress, but also to thank
everyone for all the support they have given. The efforts of all our supporters
will make Glenaire a beacon for the use of renewable energy in schools and
We’re not quite there yet, though. In the closing six months of the project – we
will wind down in the spring of 2018 – we plan to raise as much as possible,
so that we can bring enough solar power into Glenaire to make a real
difference to both the school’s energy bills and its carbon-footprint. We really
hope that we can rely on all our friends to continue supporting us as we make
our final push to raise funds. The more we raise, the more panels we can
afford and, the greater the benefits to the school and the environment.
ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!
