Powerdown Fortnight 2012-13
Powerdown fortnight involves a series of activities aimed at
raising energy awareness in schools. This year we
held two Powerdown fortnights to allow more schools to
take part in this initiative and also for schools to pick a
fortnight which best suits them. The fortnights
were held on 12 to 23 November 2012 and 4 to 15
Each fortnight was restricted to registration by 20 primary
schools and 10 secondarys schools to allow us to support you
effectively. A prize ceremony was held approximately six weeks
after each fortnight.
You can register your interest or sign up online for
our next Powerdown fortnight.
Throughout the fortnight your school can pick from a welath of events and activities on offer.
Once you have registered to take part in Powerdown you are eligible to loan resources from us to help make your fortnight run better.
