Meet the 2017 School Battery Recycling Champions

Rosalie Primary School

The batteries have been weighed and tallied and we are pleased to announce that Rosalie Primary School is our 2017 School Battery Recycling Champion collecting 313.2 kilograms! Coming 2nd was Freshwater Bay Primary School who collected 113 kilograms and third place went to St Hilda's Junior School with 87 kilograms.

In total 804 kilograms of batteries were collected in western suburbs schools in 2017.

High commendation goes to Christ Church Grammar Preparatory School who collected the third highest number of batteries per student since joining the program in March 2017.

The School Battery Competition is a great way to teach students the importance of battery recycling. Plus it can also be easily incorporated into many parts of the school curriculum.
