Big battery hunt

We have been talking to children about the importance of recycling batteries and what happens when people do not. St. Mary’s pupils have all been challenged to find and collect as many batteries as possible and we would appreciate parents support with this. They can be as creative as they like by going to work spaces, places of worship, local businesses and the wider community to enlist everyone to help make sure that no battery ends up in landfill. Children from Kindergarten to Year 6 have been given a battery collection box, please get them to bring this into school when it is full so that we can add it to the main container.

We will be entering the Big Battery Hunt competition, so the more batteries we collect the better! Please visit for more information about the campaign plus a break-down of all the prizes that the school and your child could win. Please see the base of your collection box for safety instructions. The competition ends on Monday 3rd June, so please make sure your child brings in their batteries before then. Happy Hunting!
