Wicklow People - - SPECIAL REPORT -

KIL­COOLE Thrift Shop have a num­ber of school uni­form items avail­able, at a frac­tion of the cost of buy­ing them new.

They have items mostly for pupils in ju­nior in­fants to sixth class at Kil­coole Pri­mary School.

The pri­mary school uni­form in­cludes grey trousers or a skirt, a white shirt and blue jumper with a crest.

They also have a navy track­suit, with the school crest on the top, anda white air­tex.

The shop has quite a few of them in stock. They also have some Coláiste Chraobh Ab­hann uni­forms for first to third years, with none in stock for the se­niors at the mo­ment.

The ju­nior stu­dents at the sec­ondary school wear a blue shirt, light blue jumper, and grey trousers or a green tar­tan skirt.

Prices are very af­ford­able, with the most ex­pen­sive item a jumper at €5.

Ann Pren­der­gast at Kil­coole Thrift Shop said that she has a girl go­ing into first year in Coláiste Craobh Ab­hann and that the var­i­ous ex­penses can add up for par­ents.

Off her six chil­dren, one is in pri­mary school, two in sec­ondary school, and three fin­ished.

Ann said that if a per­son is look­ing for a cer­tain size skirt or jumper, they can leave their de­tails at the shop to be con­tacted if and when it comes in.

She said that they also have a se­lec­tion of school books.
