Eco Achievements

Uniform Sale and Second hand book shop

Thankyou to all those parents who donated uniforms and books for our pop-up shops. We raised £207 pounds from the Uniforms which will be used by the School Eco Council during the next academic year. The surplus uniforms have been bagged up and are ready for our Bag2School recycling event which will take place between Monday 25 November and Tuesday 3 December.

The second hand books raised £50 which has been donated to Habitat for Humanity, a charity who worked with our P5 year group this year, and will again next year.

Thanks again.

Waringstown Primary School Receive 'Best Kept' Awards!

We are delighted to have received two awards at the ‘Best Kept’ Awards ceremony at Stranmillis University College, Belfast. Our Nursery were runners-up in the ‘Tidy School’ preschool category, which is a fantastic achievement as this is their first time entering. Also, one of our P7 pupils was put forward for the 'Best Kept Pupil Achiever Award' due to her work on our School Eco Council and Eco related activities and initiatives over the past number of years. We are delighted to announce that our entrant won this award, which had some very tough competition.

Huge congratulations from all at Waringstown Primary School.


On Thursday 21st March Mr Gault, Mrs Johns and six pupils (Our two P7 Eco Councillors and four of our P7 Wrigley Litter Less Team) travelled to W5 for the Teachers' Eco Conference 2019. It was a wonderful opportunity to exhibit many of the Eco related activities we've been doing throughout Waringstown Primary School and to officially receive our Ambassador Eco School award. We are now one of only 20 Ambassador Eco Schools throughout Northern Ireland.

P3 Bug Hotel

Our P3s have now created their new 'bug hotel' using reusing pallets that have been left behind from several deliveries. This is now our second bug hotel on the school grounds.

Let's see who or what comes to stay!

P3 Winner of '2019 Marine Litter Art Competition'

We are delighted to share that one of our Primary 3 pupils entered and won the '2019 Marine Litter Art Competition,' which she entered at home with her parents. The competition was judged by Ulster Wildlife and N.I. Science Festival representatives, this being the 'Judge's Special Commendation.' 

Our winner said, "I shredded some rope and glued it on the sculpture. I made corals out of dummies, bike tyres, bottle caps and other plastic. The sand is cut up sponge. The pearls are of a necklace."

As a school we are so proud that families are sharing in our Eco Journey to make Waringstown and areas further afield better and cleaner places.

We are so delighted for our P3 Winner. Well done!
