Litter Awareness in P4

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.'

Bag2School collections all week

This week we will take any of your donations for our Bag2School project.

Donations can include adult and children's:


-Shoes (tied together please)





-Mobile phones, tablets or digital cameras (handed into ofice)

Please NO Duvets, Pillows, Curtains, Bedding, Towels or End-Of-Life Clothing

Any donations should simply be left along the walls of the mall. Try and fill as many bags as you can (ask grandparents, friends and neighbours also). Any bags can be used, although if you would like I do have a number of Bag2School bin liners in school. Please just ask.

Why are we doing this?

Firstly, we will receive money for the school for the amount we recycle, and secondly, this recycling is a great way for us to continue our 'Eco Schools' vision.

 Let's see how well we can do.

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 (there are spare bags in the mall if you need any), 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 26 November to Tuesday 02 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. 


Wrigley Litter Less Campaign - Pick 2

We are into the second month of our 'Wrigley Litter Less Campaign' and today four more of our P7 girls went out litter pick inside and outside of our school grounds. Today they collected another two bin-liners (12kg) of litter! Let's all make an effort to reduce this.

There will be four more ventures outside our own grounds before the project report must be completed, by April 2019.

This is all part of our ECO journey.

P4 visit from Northern Ireland Water

Did you know that our bodies are 75% water? We naturally lose water daily!

P4 were learning about the importance of Water today as part of their healthy living curriculum. It was great to have Pat from NI Water join us to talk about how much water we should drink. He showed us the amount of sugar in various other drinks and informed us about how water helps to:

  • boost energy levels
  • keep mentally alert
  • keep organs healthy concentrate
  • stop headaches
  • have healthy skin
  • have fresher breath
  • flush waste from our bodies
