Wymondham College students wrap up for Big Switch Week

Students at Wymondham College wore an extra layer of hoodies and hats as they took part in wrap up Wednesday as part of Big Switch Week.

There was a distinct change to the normal school uniform at the college as part of a campaign to get into good energy behaviours and to make people aware of fuel poverty in the UK.

Students were allowed to wear hats and hoodies during the day along with their uniform.

Teacher Vic Dinwoodie, who is helping students to co-ordinate Big Switch week, said: 'This week is really important because we all need reminding how to behave in an energy efficient manner. This year, we are focusing on the social issue of fuel poverty as well as environmental concerns.'

'This should raise awareness amongst students that energy use is a concern within our local communities as well as at a wider scale.'
