Our Carbon Footprint

Solar Powered School

In 2018, HeadStart made local history by installing the largest solar power system in Phuket. Our stunning 550 kWp photovoltaic solar system means that 80% of the school’s total consumption comes from green, renewable and sustainable energy and it is the largest solar powered installation of any school in Thailand. 55% of the solar modules are installed on the roof of the main building, while the remaining 45% has been intelligently designed to provide shading for the car park, adding an extra benefit for parents.

Reduction of Single Use Plastic

We promote reducing single-use plastic by encouraging our school community to use HeadStart’s range of reusable bottles and bags. Students and staff participate in regular beach cleaning activities and our school actively supports and works with organisations like Oceans for All Foundation and Trash Hero Phuket

Environmental Awareness

Over the last few weeks students from Key stages 1-3 have created artwork for the Oceans for All Art competition to help raise awareness of the effects that plastic pollution, feeding fish and pollution from sewage and chemicals have on the ocean and its marine life. The winners will be voted for online and published in the Oceans For All book.

Primary and Foundation art students have also enjoyed working with plastic waste items and netting (some picked up from the beach) to create sculptures to emphasise the importance of looking after our oceans and the effects humans have on nature. By Ms Jody Leow
