Crisp Packet Recycling

The Nature Club at Drongan Primary is going to be running a crisp packet recycling scheme with Terracycle.  The scheme will boost the school funds, help the environment and create a greater awareness of environmental issues.  Soon there will be advertising posters in various locations around the village.  Please do your bit to help the school and the planet by collecting empty crisp packets and bringing them into the school.

Duracell Big Battery Hunt

Our pupils went home with lovely new battery boxes today in which to collect used batteries to be returned to school and counted by the pupils in P6b.  Why?  Because Drongan Primary is taking part in the Duracell Big Battery Hunt again this year.

Taking the Duracell Big Battery Hunt nationwide. This year 554,255 pupils from 2,379 schools countrywide are registered to take part and with the support of We Are Futures, Duracell has developed free educational materials to help teachers facilitate lessons, shape assemblies and homework for the pupils around the issue of and science behind recycling. Duracell created a battery collection box that children can personalise to encourage the positive impact of recycling batteries and has provided schools with 5L and 30L recycling bins in which schools can deposit the hoards of used batteries

The first results are in!Thanks to the recycling enthusiasm of Britain’s school children the initiative has collected more than 2.3 million used batteries, that’s an average of four batteries per pupil registered – and is on track to collect 278 tonnes of used batteries. That’s the same weight as 56 elephants!

Woodland Trust Trees

In November the Nature Club received 30 trees and 30 hedging bushes free from the Woodlands Trust.  With the help of the East Ayrshire Outdoor Amenities Team an area was chosen in which to plant the trees.  Half the trees were planted before the Christmas break but bad weather called a halt to progress.  The rest of the trees will be planted once the club starts up again in the new session.
