The day has arrived for Wear Your Waste! It will be a great celebration of the hard work put in by pupils and teachers from all the local schools. Around 30 creations made using recyclable material will be ‘modelled’. There will also be music, song and dance during the evening along with a raffle with lovely prizes. There will also be prizes for the most creative entries in the competition. Admission is free and everyone is welcome to come along and show their support, not just for the participants but also for the Transition Year students who have been planning this ingenious event for a number of months. The night will start promptly at 7.30pm and participants are asked to be in Millstreet Community School by 7.15pm so that the running order can be confirmed.
The Wear Your Waste event is fast approaching and there have been a great variety of entries from local national schools. Pupils, with the support of their teachers and parents have obviously been very busy. 1st years students at Millstreet Community School have also been hard at work with the guidance of the TY group organising the event and Mr Barry Fraser, their Art teacher.
As mentioned on the poster, Wear Your Waste falls within ‘Fashion Revolution Week’. This is a movement that is encouraging us all to think and ask questions about whether the people in countries far away who make many of our clothes do so in safe and ethical conditions: #whomademyclothes
It promises to be a great event, with lots of colour and creativity on display. Admission is free. There will be a raffle on the night. Separate prizes will be awarded for the first and second best entrants from the national schools and the Community School. Everyone is welcome attend. [ref]
