The Big Battery Hunt continues at Gateway!...

Students from the Gateway Academy have been avidly collecting used batteries as part of a college-wide competition to see who can collect and recycle the most. The Big Battery Hunt is a national competition which is open to all schools in the hope of recycling 4 million batteries. With over 1,500 schools taking part across the UK, the students are joining in the campaign.

The academy took delivery of their battery recycle containers and each tutor group count up their weekly haul before the results are noted on a grand leader board. With the deadline not until the end of April, there is still lots of time for all family members to get involved! Leading the way this week is X7 with 471, very closely followed by P1 with 384.

College coach and campaign leader, Miss Lisa Clemson, said “I really wanted to get the students involved to make them aware of the need to recycle, and hope that they can also win some prizes for the school at the same time!”
