Today our School Eco Council met for the second time this year, looking at many Eco related things that are currently going on. As well as encouraging their own classes to be involved in the 'Interclass Active Travel Competition' they also looked at how we could promote our Bag2School Recycling Project (which begins next Monday) in order to raise money and add to our 'Eco' Budget.
The Councillors also had a few great suggestions to help reduce plastic waste (watch this space) along with some thoughts around ideas shared by their classmates through the suggestion boxes.

Today, Tuesday 19th November 2019 due to the heavy rain and upcoming forecast we have decided to cancel Boys' Football.
Please pick up your child at 3pm as normal.
Waringstown Primary School & Nursery Unit
are running a clothing collection in conjunction with Bag2School.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate any unwanted textiles to school.
This can include adult and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, bags and teddies. Donations of mobile phones, tablets and digital cameras can also be handed in separately.
Please NO Duvets, Pillows, Curtains, Bedding, Towels or End-Of-Life Clothing
It is very important that the clothes have to be of good quality for reuse in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.
Please try to fill as many bags as you can, don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well!
If items could be brought into school and placed in/alongside the bags set out in the Mall from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 04 December this would be greatly appreciated (Any donations of electronics should be directly to the School Office).
Many thanks indeed for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity.
The whole school dressed in spots and stripes to help celebrate Children in Need 2019. Classes explored www.bbcchildreninneed.co.uk with Pudsey Bear. The money they raised will help to provide grants for projects that will improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Well done all in WPS!
The Nursery children recently enjoyed a visit from Miss McAnearney's class who read them stories. The children were very excited and it was lovely to see some older siblings came to read!
The Nursery recently enjoyed a trip to Lurgan Library, where David read stories to the children and then everyone got to look at the selection of story books on the shelves.
Primary 3 enjoyed their visit from the Stem Team. They were able to build their own battery powered cars and race them against each other. It was a fun filled day as the photos show.
Primary 5 thoroughly enjoyed a recent visit to the Ulster Museum in connection with their World Around Us topic of The Egyptians. The children enjoyed time in the Learning Zone led by a qualified Archaeologist, here they were able to identify and handle various artefacts from Egyptian times before heading up to Zone 2 in search of the famous Mummy Takabuti!
