Students who have been working in school have been participating in a wide range of projects. In May, students worked with Miss Billin on an afternoon project to make cotton scrub drawstring bags, made from pillow-cases, for the staff of a care home in Attleborough.
Staff at St Edmund’s Care Home were thrilled to receive the bags, which they can now use to put their scrub uniforms in as a hygienic bundle before being washed.
For some of the students this was the first time they had used a sewing machine and an opportunity to learn a new life skill, for others is was a chance to practice their sewing talents. But for all of them it was good knowing they had helped to supply some resources to our local key workers.
