This school has got it all sewn up
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.”
