Remy’s lockdown project

Distance Learning and isolation is a challenge for many boys

And it’s important for us to see boys finding solace in other pursuits. For Remy D’Alessandro (Year 7), a chance idea of making facemasks, has led to an exciting entrepreneurial lockdown project with mum, nonna, nanna, aunties and cousins. 

From an online pattern, prototyped with nonna, getting a sewing machine (from Australia Post!), picking fabrics, using hairband elastic (because good elastic was sold out), to packaging the finished design, this ‘Original Facemasks’ project has been a great experience, not in the least because of all that collaborative time spent with family. Well done Remy!
