Merici College Green Tip #12 - Sustainability measures in action at Merici

Here at Merici we look for efficient, sustainability promoting opportunities where possible.

Recently the installation of solar film (NS-18) on all windows in all six Tullow classrooms was completed.   

This will improve thermal comfort for staff and students in those rooms by a significant factor – especially in the warmer months.

The window tint was originally planned for the Brescia and Penola classrooms, however new double glazed windows were chosen instead to improve sound insulation due to traffic noise from Limestone Ave.

The window tint was installed by ACT Light Control and funded by our use of Local Schools Community Grant monies which the College was successful in obtaining – provided by the Australian Government and administered through the Department of Education, Skills and Employment.

Thank you to all who made this possible.

In addition to improved comfort, reduced energy use lowers operational costs and reduces our environmental footprint.
