This school has got it all sewn up

Sale & Altrincham Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN vis­ited a high school to learn all about gar­ment mak­ing.

St Mon­ica’s Catholic Pri­mary School pupils spent an af­ter­noon at St Antony’s Catholic Col­lege in Urm­ston get­ting to grips with sewing ma­chines and a va­ri­ety of sewing tech­niques.

St Mon­ica’s is one of St Antony’s feeder schools and the pupils were able to take part in spe­cial ses­sions us­ing the school’s state of the art re­sources.

Re­becca May­all, who is the head of tex­tiles at St Antony’s, said: “We have been do­ing three ses­sions with chil­dren from each of our main feeder schools, tak­ing them through the whole process of gar­ment mak­ing.

“It gives the chil­dren an op­por­tu­nity to learn some quite so­phis­ti­cated tech­niques and de­velop their con­fi­dence in a new set­ting.”

Carol Bul­lock, year five teacher at St. Mon­ica’s added: “St Antony’s has the space and fa­cil­i­ties to al­low our chil­dren to tackle some spe­cialised project work.”
