Further efforts are being taken to cool classrooms with the help of some Japanese volunteers.
A group from Japan selected Campbell High school as a site for one of its public service projects.
They painted the school’s roofs and walls with a special thermal insulation paint that helps to reduce heat and increase the effectiveness of air conditioning in the classrooms.
“This has been out in market for 22 years, but it’s only famous in Japan, not wide spread in the world. Hawaii is actually first step to introduce paint to the world,” said Takeo Nishii from Nishii Company.
Campbell High School is on the top of the education department’s priority list when it comes to installing air conditioning units.
