Primary seven pupils at a Derry primary school have been presented with copies of a new educational book written by a local teacher.

Pauline Davison’s “Tommy the Turbine,” which was presented recently to pupils at Eglinton Primary School (pictured) tells the story of the journey of a little wind turbine from his home in Canada, to his new life in the beautiful countryside of Northern Ireland.

Tommy feels a little nervous as he makes his journey from Belfast port, and through the countryside.

However, he meets lots of other turbines on his journey on farms, at factories, at
hospitals, who make him feel so welcome.

He passes local towns and villages where the children are very excited at his arrival.

They know that Tommy is going to help to provide a source of renewable energy which
will ensure the future of energy production."

The publication was sponsored by Gaelectric, the renewable energy and energy storage group.
