Little dresses for Africa

Thank you so much to the kind members of our community for all the fabric you donated to our textile art department earlier in the year. As you can see it has been put to good use and will have a new lease of life as a dress for a little girl.

Our dedicated year 9 and 10 students have been working really hard in their own time after school to make 36 dresses to send to Africa. 

Textiles teacher Ms Knight said: "The students have been fantastic and have worked really hard on this."

The group were inspired to help by the charity Little Dresses For Africa who work to improve the lives of girls and young women who are often dressed in nothing but rags. These little dresses plant the seed that they are worthy.
