Bedales first ‘swishing’ event

Over the past few weeks Bedales Green Team has been focused on new, more creative ways of bringing about environmental awareness in the student body. This week we will have our first ‘swishing’ event where the community will bring all their old, reusable clothes to the Quad for a big swap and recycle event to encourage people to think about the frequency at which they buy clothes and the significance of things that no longer mean much to them but may to other people. Bedales has always been a place that encompasses all different styles; someone’s old clothes may be part of another’s individual image, making a ‘swish’ of trading clothes perfect. Moreover, all the unwanted clothes will be donated to the charity TRAID which is a significant supporter of ethicality within the clothing industry.

Bedales Prep raises over £3,000 for charity

Pupils and staff from Bedales Prep school Dunhurst were delighted to have raised over £3,000 at their annual charity event ‘Helping Other People In Trouble’ (HOPiT) Fair.

HOPiT is a child run scheme at Dunhurst where the pupils decide on which charities the school should support and then they arrange a number of events throughout the year to raise money for them, including the annual HOPiT Fair.

The children planned and prepared their own stalls, selling a range of goodies from cakes and sweets to crafts, jewellery and makeovers for parents and friends.

Jane Grubb, Head of Dunhurst, commented “It was lovely to see the pride on the children’s faces as they heard how much they had managed to raise by their combined efforts. Our HOPiT Fair is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to develop skills in team-work, project management and leadership in achieving great things for causes they really care about.”
