Eco Achievements

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!

Meet 'Nancy the Flamingo'

 

Meet 'Nancy the Flamingo,' made by some of our 'Wrigley Litter Less Campaign' P7 girls.

Nancy has been made using recycled materials including toilet roll tubes, ping pong balls and papermache. The girls decided to make this all by themselves after they met 'Opsie' a few months ago. Opsie was a bird made from recycled materials and was travelling to all the countries taking part in the Wrigley Litter Less Campaign.

Well done girls.

Thankyou once again to NI Water

A huge thank you to NI Water for donating a new water butt along with several 'save-a-flush' bags which our School Eco Council will place in all of our toilet cisterns to save water! NI Water have already donated drip free water bottles to all of our pupils and staff in school along with teaching P4 and P6 about the importance of water!

We as a school very much appreciate their support.

Code Week 2018 Award

 

As part of the Erasmus+ project our school had a few classes take part in Coding Week. One of the activities we did in Key Stage 1 was to use the app ‘Daisy the Dinosaur,’ which involved pupils giving instructions to move a dinosaur. Evidence was shared between our partner schools in Spain, Italy, Finland and Ireland, who all seemed to have fun with their coding projects.

We are delighted to have been awarded this certificate for our efforts.

A huge 'Bag2School' Thankyou - Best Year Yet

A huge thank you for all your donations for our Bag2School collection. The items were collected today and will be making their way to Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.

The weight of all our collections came to 619.5kgs, which has raised £278.78 for the school. This is the biggest amount we have raised through this initiative over the past few years. The money will be used by the School Eco Council to buy items for our children throughout the school.

Many thanks indeed for helping us with this unique recycling and fundraising opportunity.
