Foundation Stage Enjoy An Exciting Day With The Sentinus Team

Foundation Stage had a very exciting day with the lovely Sarah Rowland from the Sentinus Team. She educated us on the importance and fun to be had through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The workshop was based around the story of the Three Little Pigs with each class from Primary One and Primary Two each enjoying their own individual slot.

During each session the children got the opportunity to explore the various materials used to build the three little pigs homes with every child being given time to explore each of the stations.

Litter Awareness in Primary 4

Pamela Hanna from Armagh City Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council came in to speak to our P4s about Litter Awareness. She talked about protecting our environment and preserving our community. We looked at the damages to wildlife and how our community should look! Our pupils were informed about what our Council do to stop people littering and the message of what we can do to be create less litter was talked about.

Now its up to us to 'PASS IT ON.'

Bag 2 School Recycling 2019

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.

Thank you!

Fruit Stop Recyclable Plastic Waste bin

One of the recent suggestions at a School Eco Council meeting was to provide a plastic recycling bin to sit alongside our 'Fruit Stop' area, managed by Primary 7s. This means that any pupil purchasing an item which contains recyclable plastic has a place to dispose of their plastic waste.

Wrigley Litter Less Campaign - PAPER Focus

Last year we took part in a Litter Less Campaign, part of a joint initiative of the Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE. We've decided to take part in the campaign this year, although our focus is now on paper and recycling.

Our P6s have already been around all of the classrooms and resources areas emptying their paper recycle bins and monitoring how much paper we are actually recycling.
