Rag Bag Scheme: Recycling old clothes

Thank you very much for all Rag Bag donations we have already received - so far we have collected 94kg of clothing donations raising just over £37 for our school.

The next collection of Rag Bags is few weeks away so this will be a good opportunity to have a clear out of your wardrobe before Christmas. If you have any unwanted wearable clothing, paired shoes, handbags and belts, please fill the Rag Bag and return to the school. A bag should have been sent home with each pupil.

Bags should be dropped off in room G3 between 8:30am–9am and 3:20pm–4pm on Friday the 9th of December.

Help raise money for Oldmachar Academy’s Eco Group – we will receive £400 per tonne of Rag Bag donations.

Visit Rag Bag Textile Recycling for more details. Thank you!

An S2 class from Oldmachar Academy was one of the groups taking part in Friday’s Glitterpick: a 24 hour litter picking event happening in 24 different locations around Aberdeen on the 24th of June, 2016.

The event was organised by ACC’s environmental team to help Aberdeen *sparkle* in the summer months, and involved schools and community groups across the city.
