Gabriella and Isabelle from the Green Schools Committee will be going around this week to let classes know that each block in our school will have a battery collection box located in the strongroom. If the boys and girls have used batteries at home that they would like to recycle, they can bring them into class and they can be put in the WEEE Ireland collection boxes.
There will also be a box in the office and parents room. It is important that used batteries are stored safely, away from water and out of reach of young children.
Some supermarkets and places that sell batteries, such as Lidl also have battery collection point near the tills.
Thanks to the 5th class boys who put the boxes together and labelled them and the girls from Green Schools for informing the classes.
