Parents can save money on school uniforms as part of a recycling scheme which has been a success at Annick Primary School.

Most North Ayrshire schools or parent councils now offer some form of uniform recycling service, where items can be swapped, bought for a reduced price or obtained for free.

Annick has offered its successful recycling service for around five years, providing good quality, pre-loved uniform items to the community. Staff play their part by ensuring that the clothing is clean and well-displayed, with families are encouraged to donate any items they no longer need and help themselves to any they require.

At the end of each school year, any lost property that remains unclaimed is also washed and added to the Uniform Station.

Annick Primary School’s Depute Head Teacher, Vicky McGregor, said: “Over the years our Uniform Station has gone from strength to strength, and we now have a range of items including shoes, bags and coats.

“We would like to thank all the people who have supported the scheme over the years, especially the staff who ensure that this fabulous resource remains a key asset for our community.”
