Holy Trinity are Recycling Heroes
Our pupils participated in European Week of Waste Reduction 17th-25th November 2018. During this week we brought in old batteries to recycle and took part in a recycling quiz.
It is very important to dispose of batteries correctly as they contain toxic and harmful chemicals that can cause pollution to the soil and water.
We have collected over 500 batteries so far! If you have any old batteries in your home, make sure to bring them into school! Miss Cush’s classroom is the collection point.
Our colleagues at Holy Trinity College invites parents to a short information evening on Thursday 22nd November @ 6.00pm – 7.30pm to learn how to use one of our powerful classroom technology tools, Read & Write, in the home to help your child achieve their full potential.
