Lucaya International School year four students tour GB Power plantThe Year 4 students at Lucaya International School went on a fun field trip to Grand Bahama Power Company’s Steam Plant last week, as they were learning about electricity for their Unit of Inquiry. Students got a first-hand look at how the steam and diesel plant operate and how the electricity that they use every day in their homes is created.

"Hands on experience is great for the children and the Grand Bahama Power staff were super, they really knew how to speak to the children," said LIS Year 4 Teacher Sharron Waterhouse. She escorted 16 students along with three parent chaperones who were guided through the plant by Vaughn Cartwright, Shift Supervisor and Edrondo Thompson, Operator Trainee.

“It is always a great experience when the school students come by for tours of the plant. We are able to provide them with a little bit of the knowledge gained from years of experience here at the plant" said Vaughan Cartwright.
