Mike Bargh and Warren the Rabbit from Mansfield 103FM came to school just before the Easter holidays to interview five children - Evie, Poppy, Kyra, Connor, Danny. They described a secret item, which are clues to a competition that will be posed to listeners of the Breakfast Show week starting 12th June. Keep listening to Mansfield 103FM for the fantastic competition.
Used printer cartridge recycling
As part of our work towards our Eco-Schools award we are committed to reducing waste and recycling more, both in school and in our homes. The Eco-Committee has been looking at ways to do this and have decided to work with a company called ‘Empties Please’. They collect and recycle used ink and toner cartridges and will donate any money raised back to us.
It’s very simple. All we have to do is collect used ink cartridges and toner cartridges and put them into the collection bin, in one of the bags provided, which is situated in the reception area in school. ‘Empties Please’ will collect the bin when it is full and then donate the money raised back to school with a certificate to display showing how much we have raised through our recycling. We may also qualify for their Green Rewards scheme if we collect enough. You can collect cartridges from absolutely anywhere – school, work, home, clubs, friends and family. The more we can collect the better and as it takes up to 1000 years for a printer cartridge to decompose it is an environmentally friendly way for you to dispose of your printer cartridges whilst helping us at the same time!
Toners accepted: original branded Brother, Cannon, Dell and Epson toner cartridges
Ink cartridges accepted: original branded Cannon, HP, Lexmark and Samsung ink cartridges
Please make sure you put all cartridges in one of the bags provided before placing in the collection bin.
Thank you for your help.
This term we will be focussing our learning on Ourselves. The children will be learning about their families and where they live. They will learn how their bodies move and their senses work. We will think about our friends, our pets and our favourite things. Please support your child’s learning by sending in a photo of your child as a baby which we will copy and use for a display. If there are any parents or families who have special hobbies, interests or traditions they would be happy to share with us, please see a member of staff and we will arrange for you to come in or send some things to share with the children.
