About This Project:
We are proud to be a member of Sefton's 'Clean Air Crew'! For this exciting project, we will be finding ways to monitor air pollution around our school grounds and come up with a plan to reduce this.
As part of this project, we are thrilled to announce that our application to be part of Sefton's 'Air Watch' programme has been accepted! This will allow us to monitor air pollution around our school grounds using a NOX Diffusion Tube which will be sent off each month to Sefton Council who will anaylse the levels of Nitrogen Oxide in our air.
Our results from the month of February told us that our air pollution levels are good. We are still using NOX Diffusion Tubes to monitor our air pollution levels and are thinking of ways we can further reduce this.
7.1.22 - First NOX Diffusion Tube Installed!
At lunch time today our School Councillors responsible for our NOX Diffusion Tube installed our first one onto our building. We will leave it for a month before replacing it with a new tube and sending it off to Sefton to be analysed. We are really looking forward to finding out just how clean our air is around our school grounds!
20.12.21 - Diffusion Tube Holder Installation
We welcomed a visitor from Sefton Council who explained to us all about our NOX Diffusion Tube and how it works. It has a filter in the cap which captures Nitrogen Oxide air particles. We will install our first tube in January after Christmas. After a month, we will be sent a new tube in the post which our project leaders will replace our current tube with. Our current tube will then be posted off to Sefton Council and will be sent to a lab for analysis.
