Today Collette (Project Manager) and Teresa (Project Worker) picked up lots of brand new pants for both boys and girl as well as some brand new crop tops from Maria at Smalls for All – these will be put in our uniform packs when requested.
As with all other items of clothing, children out grow underwear and they need replaced as they become worn out. Some families just can’t stretch their finances to be able to purchase crop tops for the older primary school girls. Having crop tops are important when girls bodies are changing to ensure they feel comfortable in general but importantly whilst taking part in physical education sessions with their classmates. We all know that girls engagement with physical exercise does start to drop off around this age and we want to support our local girls to ensure the cost of the school doesn’t mean they are excluded from taking part.
THANK YOU once again for your continued support Maria.
