Primary school children near Garvagh marked COP27 with a special Green Assembly with ABO Wind and highlighted the power of renewables.

The pupils showcased their environmental and sustainable quiz answering questions on wind and solar power.  Joined by their families, the pupils celebrated the end of seven weeks hard work with the team.

Michael Mullan, Development Project Manager at ABO said:

“At ABO Wind, we passionately believe that renewable energy will play such an important role in everyone’s future. We’re delighted to be working with and supporting local communities across Northern Ireland and it was so much fun joining the children and staff at St. Patrick’s and St. Joseph’s, Glenullin to hear all about what they have learned about renewable energy over the last seven weeks. We’re proud to be bringing forward projects across Northern Ireland that will help create a greener and more sustainable future for everyone.”

Mrs Catherine Ball, P6 teacher at St Patrick’s and St Joseph‘s Primary School, said:

“We have loved welcoming Mrs. Davison to the school and the children have really enjoyed learning about green energy. This is something that is so important to all of us as we work together to fight the effects of climate change. With ABO Wind’s support, our pupils and staff now have a greater understanding of the importance of renewable electricity and it has been a fantastic learning experience for everyone.”

The educational outreach project with the school, is one of several across the UK that ABO is delivering to educate pupils about their environment.
