SCHOOLCHILDREN organised a rubbish fashion show.

But that was how it was meant to be for the event at St Vincent de Paul primary school in Stevenage.

The school organised a recycled fashion show - showing clothes made from bottles and cans, scrap paper and cardboard.

This is another example of the work Stevenage schools are doing to achieve their Eco Schools status.

St Vincent has earned their Eco Schools bronze award and is now on its way to getting the silver award.

Fifty children strutted their stuff down the catwalk in front of a panel of judges headed by the mayor of Stevenage, Brian Underwood.

Awards were presented and among the winners were Mrs Loom's Year 4 class, who won a day trip funded by the Mayor's Charity.

The judges were particularly impressed with their inventive use of carrier bags and old CDs.

Cllr Underwood said: "They should be commended for their ingenuity and imagination. It's a brilliant way to get young people thinking about environmental issues like recycling.
