Battery Recycling Champions!

Battery Recycling Champions!


WEEE Pledge Initiative 2017

On Wednesday the 6th September, some students from sixth class attended the Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun to meet Minister Denis Naughten, the minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, WEEE Ireland representatives, people from the Laura Lynn Foundation and of course, BOSCO.

You may remember that earlier this year we collected lots and lots of batteries. More than 45 boxes to be precise! We collected them not only for recycling purposes but also because every battery box we collected resulted in approximately €5.00 being donated to the Laura Lynn Foundation.

Due to our fantastic effort, St. Vincent de Paul GNS became the overall Dublin prize winner of the WEEE Pledge Initiative for 2016/2017.

We have won a school trip for 30 students to attend an educational workshop at The Rediscovery Centre.  We are looking forward to this immensely.

Again, thank you to all the parents, children and wider school community who helped to collect so many batteries over the two week period for such a great cause.

Le meas,


The Green Schools Committee.
