Picker Pals

We have recently signed up to the Picker Pals programme which is an environmental action programme for primary school children, their families, schools and communities. Picker Pals motivates children through a fun song and story world, and the unique Picker Pack, equipping and inspiring children on local litter-picking adventures. We were very lucky to receive our beautiful recycled "picker pack" and as the pack is very expensive to make, only 1 class will get to use it this term.

Éadaoin's 1st class are the lucky class involved in the Picker Pals programme for our school. They received their "picker pack", which contains two litter pickers, gloves, instructions and bags. Each week, a lucky student gets to take this pack home to go litter picking with their loved ones. When they return the pack, they are asked to talk about what they found with their class and discuss how they can prevent the littering of these items and come up with solutions.

1st class have already heard the Picker Pals song and read the Picker Pals story and have started completing their beautiful workbooks. They are extremely excited about having an opportunity to bring the pack home at the weekend to pick up some litter in their area.
Fionn was the lucky one in 1st class to be the 1st person to bring the Picker Pack home for the weekend.
