Battery Recycling Collection

Well done to all the pupils from Juniors to 6th class for putting in so much hard work over the past few months collecting batteries! We had so many bags and boxes full when WEEE Ireland came. We couldn’t believe that we filled 3 bins to the brim. As a small token to say thanks, they left us some lovely fridge magnets. It is a huge achievement for a school our size to have collected so many batteries so a big thank you to all! The planet is in safe hands with these guardians looking after it!
