Powerdown Fortnight 2013-14
Powerdown fortnight involves a series of activities aimed at
raising energy awareness in schools. This year we are holding
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 will be held on 11 to 22
November 2013 and 3 to 14 March
2014(TBC). This year Peterborough Environment City Trust
(PECT) are delivering Powerdown on behalf of PCC.
Each fortnight is restricted to registration by 20
primary schools and 10 secondarys schools to allow us to support
you effectively. A prize ceremony will beld
following each fortnight.
