QSI Phuket holds 8th Annual Recycle Fashion Show

Primary and secondary students – as well as a few parents and teachers – at Quality Schools International (QSI) Phuket had the opportunity to show off their creativity, fashion passion and environmental stewardship last Friday (April 1) at the school’s annual Recycle Fashion Show, the 8th edition.

“The school’s annual Recycle Fashion Show truly felt like we were a big family coming together for a very worthy cause. I am proud of everyone associated with the school,” siad School Director, Russel Page.

Fifty-two students worked individually or as a team on their creations behind the scenes over the last few weeks. Secondary students paired with the younger students (5-7 years old) to help them design and realise their visions... of a princess, a transformer, a samurai or other. Secondary students were more theme based with their costumes – for example nature vs. progress; a lonely bride; a Victorian London lady.

Mr Page outlined various values and skills applied: “In addition to the artistic design skills learned in our art curriculum and the positive environmental effects that recycling and re-using has on our surroundings, the students certainly practiced working independently, working with others for a common cause, respect for the earth and the environment around them and counting on each other to help save energy.”

“By working together to create a fabulous show, I can say that we also practiced kindness and politeness and concern for others, something I see every day from our community members, and certainly in the days leading up to the fashion show,” he said.

Joe Brogan, Secondary Teacher and Internal Coordinator, added, “Aesthetic appreciation and group interaction were all well represented by the students in the show.”

Mr Brogan said this yearly event at QSI Phuket is always something to look forward to, not only by teachers and students, but the greater fashion and environment savvy Phuket community.

“The students did not disappoint! For me, this year was especially exciting because my two year old son Mac got to walk the cat walk,” said Mr Brogan.

Anneliese Storm, QSI Phuket Resource Teacher afforded praise for the communal effort.

“The elementary students have always shown enthusiasm and excitement when it comes to being creative and working with hands on activities. This year was no exception,” she said.

Ms Storm noted that participation amongst the younger students has been parallel to former years, adding however, that this year there was more increased awareness of using recycled materials.

“This year, there were only recycled materials for their costumes which stretched their imagination and their manipulation of the items that were collected over a five to six week period,” she said.

Mr Page concluded, “This couldn’t have been possible without the help of the entire staff at QSI Phuket. Thank you!”
