Big Battery Hunt (Added 31.1.19)
The Eco Leadership Group in Room 11 has launched this year's Big Battery Hunt. Please check schoolbags for your battery box. Over 20,000 tonnes of batteries end up in landfill every year. So we have joined over 1,000 schools already participating in one of the largest recycling challenges in the UK to help make a difference to recycling behaviour for generations to come. Last year we managed to recycle 10,260 batteries, maybe this year we could do even more! If you have any batteries for recycling please send them in and follow us on Twitter for updates on how many batteries we have gathered so far.
