Rewarding ALPA Workers

Standard

alpa managers alpa workers

Recently, we went to ALPA store and gave the workers some eggs from our chickens. It was to say thankyou for saving the scraps for us.

They were very happy and they gave us another bale of boxes to put on the weeds in the orchard area.

POWER PATROL VISITS AND GIVES OUT PRIZES

Standard

P1030211

This morning power patrol went to some secondary classes and primary classes and suprized them by giving awards and sunflower seeds out!

We gave the prizes to the people who saved energy during the school holidays.

We had to be very sneaky to give out the prizes.

We had to get all the sunflower seeds in packets and hand out awards and sunflower seeds without telling the kids beforehand!

The kids felt very proud and smart.

They were very grateful for the prize and we were happy that they were saving energy.
