Good Day Banting Families!
Business Studies at Banting is coordinating
a new initiative by introducing a free standing fully functioning
‘gently’ used clothing store that will be located within the school.
Our goal is to create an environment where
students can access the store with the support of Administration or a
caring adult within the school so that they can choose items that they
not only need but want. Our social media accounts will showcase items
available, therefore students will have the opportunity to direct
message the Instagram or Twitter accounts to request particular items.
This will ensure a student’s privacy and we will arrange a time for them
to access the store and shop.
It is a school wide collaborative effort
spearheaded by the students of Business Studies. Students in Business
studies will be responsible for marketing, social media, inventory,
organizing, and coordinating all groups. As a school wide initiative,
Digital Media and Visual Art classes will be creating the logo and
signage for the store front, Life Skills will help sort and launder,
Grade 11 Peer Leaders and the Grade 12 Leadership classes will help with
classroom visits and mentoring younger students, and Technology will
assist in store set-up and shelving.
Over the course of the next three weeks, up
to and including Wednesday December 19, 2018, we want to collect as
many units as possible. We are looking for:
- Jeans / Pants / Sweats
- Sweaters / Blouses
- School bags
- Running shoes
- Rolling racks
- Hangers etc.
- Unused gift cards etc…
Additionally, the Senior Boys’ Rugby team
has agreed to any and all manual labor and have also agreed to pick up
donations within the community as needed!
We would like to have the store fully
operational by the end of January. Once the store is operational in
semester two we would like to maintain its sustainability by
replenishing clothing items as needed and appropriate for each season.
We are hoping for your support and
donations. If you have any questions, would like to donate or need to
arrange a clothing pick up, please contact Claudia Popp at email@example.com or Doug Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
