Junior pupils from Mornington School, in Dunedin, show
off their costumes, made from waste, in the ''Wearable
Wonders'' show yesterday.
More than 100 pupils, aged between 5 and 7, strutted their
stuff on the catwalk as they showed off the handmade
masterpieces they had created out of discarded material from
home and recycling from various local businesses.
The catwalk had it all as proud friends and family watched a
display which included pirates, princesses, birds and fire
engines. They encouraged and cheered the children as they
took the stage, and one crowd member called the show
Yesterday was the grand finale to a ''what makes trash
flash'' classroom unit that focused on the environment and
the importance of recycling.
Deputy principal Carmel Jolly said the pupils had been very
excited and were very proud of their costumes, which were a
''work of love''.
The school also collected canned food at the event.
