It was a national challenge to encourage children to recycle batteries rather than putting them into landfill.

Across both school sites, the children collected a magnificent 10,366 batteries, which contributed to a national collection of 2.7 million batteries.

Amy Turner from the school’s East Site collected a superb 1,833, collecting the batteries from family, friends and neighbours.

The children will be able to continue to recycle batteries at the collection point in the school.
