Green Schools
WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment) Ireland is currently involved in a Schools Collection Programme. A representative visited the school on Wednesday and gave a very good presentation to the Third Class children about electrical recycling.
You may have noticed a large blue bin at the front of the school beside the pedestrian gate. Next Wednesday we will have an Electrical Recycling Day.
If you have any small electrical items that are no longer of use, please bring them to school on Wednesday and place them directly into the blue bin. Most items should be quite small such as hair-dryers, walkmans, electric toothbrushes, food mixers etc NO FRIDGES, WASHING MACHINES, TVS PLEASE!
