For the past 5 weeks a small group of Year 7 and Year 8s have participated in an afterschool textiles group with Mrs Mell.
The project was 'dress a girl around the world'. The students made summer dresses to be given to young girls from third world countries who have never owned a new dress. The King Charles I students have been working hard each Thursday and are nearly finished.
When asked what they have gained from the project, it was unanimous that they felt more confident using the sewing machine. They have done a brilliant job and we look forward to seeing what they make next.
If any students are interesting in joining the textiles club, please speak to Mrs Mell.
