Uniform Upcycling Club

At BIS we often refer to our comprehensive co-curricular activities (CCAs) programme and the fantastic opportunities each of the clubs provides for students to develop a range of skills which challenge them emotionally, socially and academically.  

It is so rewarding to see students who actually apply these skills to real-life situations, extending the activity in such a way that it intersects with the Community Service programme and positively impacts our local community.

Outside the Secondary Auditorium is a large collection bin marked “Uniform Recycling” which is often overflowing with used Secondary uniforms donated by students and parents. We would like to again thank those who have supported the Uniform Upcycling Project and we are thrilled to be able to share with you the remarkable transformation these uniforms have had.

Most of us know Ms Katie Walsh as the Secondary Receptionist however, not that many are aware that she also supervises the student-led Uniform Upcycling Club as well as being a creative innovator who is constantly looking for ways to reach out to others!  

I am thrilled to be able to share a few photographs of children from our community partner, Thien Phuoc Foster Home for Disabled Children, who each received a hand-made mat produced from second-hand uniforms.  You will notice that there is a different badge sewn into the corner of each mat – although small and seemingly insignificant, these badges are a special symbol of the thoughtfulness and care taken by the Uniform Upcycling Club team which did not go unnoticed by the children!  We have been told that they expressed their surprise and delight in being recognised as individuals, each feeling special and unique.  The badges were obtained by Katie from Bright Solutions, a social enterprise dedicated to assisting marginalized women.

 On behalf of the Thien Phuoc Foster Home for Disabled Children, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to Katie Walsh, Minh Vy Nguyen and their team for this amazing gift.
