Knitting for a Cause in 7M

There are many things that go together - salt and pepper, strawberries and cream, yin and yang, art and music, but, boys and knitting? 7M broke the mold on Thursday 29 May when they enjoyed an afternoon of knitting.

On the eve of the Boarders' Long Weekend the boys of 7M learned how to knit, had a lesson in perseverance and concentration, and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon all in the name of Community Service. The boys knitted squares to put together to make a blanket which will be donated to charity at the end of this term.

The idea was taken from the Asia-Pacific Round Square Conference in Auckland that I attended in April. The 200 delegates that attended the conference were knitting Peggy Squares to be turned into blankets to be donated to the local maternity hospital.

A big THANK YOU to all of the mums who gave up their time to come to our knitting afternoon. You all showed great care and patience as you helped the boys harness their knitting skills. We cannot wait to see the finished product!
