Rag ad

Sciennes Primary is holding a rag bag collection on Wednesday 12th March.

Our eco-group have created this short ad to promote rag bag recycling in school. We hope you like it!

All clothes, textiles, pairs of shoes, fabric and materials are welcome. 

This is a good opportunity to give your wardrobe a spring clean as the warmer weather approaches, and bring in any old, out grown or worn out clothes.

We can accept the following items:

  • All men’s, ladies' and children’s clothing
  • Paired shoes (tied together)
  • Handbags, bags, ties & belts
  • Household linen & towels
We cannot accept the following items:
  • Duvets both synthetic and feathered
  • Pillows & cushions
  • Carpets & Rugs
  • Soiled or wet clothing
  • Uniforms & workwear
  • Shredded or mutilated textile material
  • Textile off cuts, yarns or threaded material
All donations will be reused where appropriate, or recycled for other uses where they cannot be reused.

The more materials we can collect, the more funds we will raise for our school.

A bag will be sent home with each older sibling on or before Friday 7th March. If you need extra bags, please use plastic bags or sacks from home.

We are asking for bags to be filled and returned on Wednesday 12th March. We do not have space in school to store bags before they are uplifted, so PLEASE only return them on the 12th.

Here are some photos from the Advert shoot, taken in the Eco Garden. Thank you to parent helpers who supported with the after school activity.
