Hello, our names are Hannah and Gabriela, and we are the Primary 7A Eco reps. We are taking part in something called the Duracell Big Battery Hunt and the whole school is involved.
Basically, the idea is to help recycle more batteries so they don’t end up in landfill. This is a real problem because the battery fluid can pollute the earth and affect animals and plants. Every class has received little boxes to go home., one per family, to collect old and used batteries. When the box is full, bring it into school and put the batteries into the box in reception.
Another good thing about this is that once we fill up our big battery box we are entered into a prize draw with all the other schools doing the hunt and we could win some awesome prizes including:
A 2 night trip to the Sustainability centre,
A 3 year subscription to MyMaths worth £1000
£2000 of classroom equipment
And lots of trophies and certificates.
It would be great if you could get involved and bring in some used batteries to go in the battery box and help fill it up so that we can help the planet, (and win some cool prizes) so bring in your batteries today to help!
