Clothes Swap and 'No New June'!
Many thanks to all the children and parents who came to the Upper School's Fast Fashion Clothes Swapping event. It was great to see so many pre-loved clothes finding a new home rather than going to landfill, as we found out they so often do. The children learned a lot over the unit of work, and have hopefully been inspired to exercise their power as a consumer to make more ethical choices like a concerned Global Citizen.
In the spirit of the event, many parents and children also 'signed up' to take part in Upper School's 'No New June' initiative. This is a commitment to not buy any new clothes during the month of June but to explore more sustainable options. The children were really passionate about this and did a wonderful job advertising this idea with badges, stickers and slogans. I hope everyone's 'No New June' is going well!
