Going Green at Birchwood
 
We are pleased to say that our new food waste recycling bins have now arrived and we have started to use them.
 
Our Christmas Tree also arrived this week. This will be up in school from next week. Each year our tree is given a name, last year it was Trudy, the year before it was Trevor….. Watch this space for the name this year!
 
We promised last week that our next recycling item would be about batteries. Today each child has been sent home with a ‘Big Battery Hunt’ collection box for used batteries. The box contains instructions on what to do and also contains important safety instructions. Please ensure you follow the instructions given to avoid any risk of harm. The box is to recycle AAA, AA, C and D batteries. Once the box is full this can be returned to school and emptied into the main battery recycling box. There is a mini puzzle on the box and the box can be coloured in by children if they wish to.
 
We look forward to seeing how many batteries we can collect over the next few months.
 
 
Wow what a first week we have had! Well done to everyone who has brought in batteries for recycling. We now have 4 full tubs and have arranged our first collection. Keep collecting and bringing your used battery boxes in.
 
Did you know we also collect old spectacles, which get sent out to third world countries? So, if you were wondering what to do with your old frames and lenses… bring them to Birchwood!
 
Together, we can help give the gift of improved vision to others.
