Trash to Fashion 2017 Letter

Posted on 30 August 2017


Dear Parents/Caregivers,

As part of the Year 7/8 Technology programme your child has been involved in designing and creating a Kiwiana themed garment made out of trash. This will be presented at the Kiwiana Trash to Fashion show on Thursday the 26th October, starting at 6pm.

This is part of the school curriculum and all Year 7/8 students are expected to attend.

We have been working really hard to prepare for this show, and we know how excited the students are to share their work with friends and Whanau.

We will be having a full Dress Rehearsal on Wednesday the 25th October.

All students will need to have black clothes to wear at both the dress rehearsal and the show night.

Students will be required to come to school at 5.00pm on Thursday 26th October to prepare their hair and makeup.

This will be a great opportunity for our community to get together and celebrate our students’ achievements. It will be a great night, so please keep the date free, and we will see you there!

Tickets will be available to purchase for $5 in the office from Week 9. Initially, tickets will be limited to 3 per family and any unsold tickets will go on sale in Term Four. First come, first served.

Please fill in the slip below and return to the classroom teacher.

If you are available to assist with the show e.g. helping out with hair and makeup, please leave a note at the bottom of the form and we will be in touch or contact me on

Yours sincerely,

Olivia Barclay and the Rimu Team teachers
