Pupils donate uniforms to African children
Pupils have been handing in their old uniforms as their school prepares to donate nearly all its contents to youngsters in Africa.
The Duston School in Duston, Northampton, England, is moving to a new building in September but rather than throwing away all its old furniture and textbooks, it is giving them to a charity project in South Africa.
And with the children set to start the next school year with a new-look uniform, they decided to add their unwanted school clothes to the charity bundle.
According to deputy headteacher Gill Salver, it was the pupils themselves who came up with the idea for the project.
She said: "They decided the move to their brand new school building, with a smart new uniform, offered an ideal opportunity to help students from another country who are not fortunate enough to have the same resources as they have.
"All the old uniform, as well as unwanted furniture and textbooks will be heading to a school in South Africa."
