Bring on the Batteries – Did you use up any batteries over the Christmas period?

In keeping with our Green School status, the Green School committee would like to remind all families about the importance of recycling batteries.

Piercestown N.S. are registered with weeepledge.ie . This free battery recycling programme not only offers a means of recycling for the children but also offers opportunities for schools who engage in the programme to win some prizes for the school.

Furthermore, by recycling batteries funds are raised for the LauraLynn Children’s Hospice in Ireland. Further information about the LauraLynn hospice is available on http://www.lauralynn.ie

There’s two good reasons to get recycling those batteries. So bring on those batteries. Wee recycling boxes are located at the Green School noticeboard at the entrance of the school.

Green School update – Two parents needed for the Committee

Piercestown N.S. have got their ‘green’ back on and have started on the road towards achieving their 5th Green Flag! Flag 5 has the theme of ‘biodiversity’.

To get the ball rolling, October 2014, saw the children and staff complete a questionnaire on their understanding and awareness of biodiversity. Following this, the Green School committee is in the process of being elected. We are currently looking for two parent members to complete the Green School Committee.

Could any interested parents please contact the school to have themselves elected onto the committee. We will operate on a first come first served basis! Go on, get your green on!!!

Watch this space for the updated committee!
