Creativity Once Again for Year 13 “Trashion Show”

For the third year running following its great success, St. Mary’s held their creative "Trashion Show". Year 13 students came together for the annual event as part of their Catholic Religious Studies (CRS) programme to take a closer look at environmental issues.


“We were impressed with the creativity and team work demonstrated by all of our students.”
— Mrs C Collard, Religious Education Faculty Leader

“Staff and students had lots of fun and it was a great day to devote to environmental awareness where students could discuss, share ideas and make decision about how their actions will impact on the lives of others.”
— Julia Findlay, Lay Chaplain

The day began with a spiritual reflection where a representative from CAFOD attended and spoke to the students regarding the charity’s environmental work oversees, as well as about how their actions impact the lives of others.  The students proceeded to play interactive games, further discuss environmental issues and examine Catholic teachings surrounding the matter, before making clothing out of recycled materials.  The day concluded in the fashion show where students modelled the clothing they had made from recycled materials such as crisp packets, bubble wrap and bin liners.

Staff were unanimously impressed with the way that the groups all worked together to produce fantastic outfits, and an informative and fun day was had by all.
