Part­ner­ship Saves Elec­tric­ity

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - NEWS -

Ha­haione Ele­men­tary School stood out in HECO’s 2010 Home En­ergy Chal­lenge for its cre­ative tips on us­ing en­ergy wisely.

The school won in the inaugural cat­e­gory of En­ergy Con­ser­va­tion Project in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Kaiser High’s Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Arts & Technology Learn­ing Cen­ter.

Ha­haione’s stu­dent coun­cil part­nered with Kaiser to film en­ergy con­ser­va­tion mes­sages de­liv­ered through mu­sic and move­ment. The prize-win­ning motto for their pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment is this: “If we do this to­gether, we can keep this world for­ever.”

The mes­sages were then broad­cast on the school’s closed-cir­cuit TV to the en­tire stu­dent body and shared via DVD with Kamiloiki and Aina Haina ele­men­tary schools, Kaiser High and Niu Val­ley Mid­dle.

“All the En­ergy Con­ser­va­tion Project en­tries were im­pres­sive and set a high stan­dard for the first year of this cat­e­gory,” said Kaiu­lani de Silva, Hawai­ian Elec­tric Co.’s di­rec­tor of ed­u­ca­tion and con­sumer af­fairs.

“We want to con­grat­u­late all of the stu­dents and their fam­i­lies for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­nity.”
