Remember to bring your unwanted clean clothing, shoes (tied together please), linen, belts, purses and soft bags to your parent-teacher interviews next week. Instead of being thrown into landfills as garbage, quality textiles can be re-used as affordable second-hand clothing both in North America and overseas. Any items deemed unsuitable for resale will be taken to textile recycling facilities where they will be broken down and remade into useful materials, such as fleece jackets. As an added bonus the school council is paid a small amount per kg that goes back into funding enrichment programming for our students.
Items will be collected starting Thursday Nov. 15th– Monday Nov. 19h. All bags can be dropped off on the First Floor in the Essex Primary Hallway (Guidance Room). Look for yellow signs to guide you from the front foyer.
Lost and found items will be on display in the front hall during the Bag2School Drive. Any unclaimed items will go to Bag2School on Thursday.
