Yarrabah Work Skills Program - Seeking your assistance!

Tuesday 23rd June 2020

As a part of our work skills program in the secondary school, we have an exciting new partnership forming with a local sustainable organisation Man Rags, reusing, repurposing and recycling old socks.

Students will have the opportunity to practice their work skills both at school and potentially on site in the local Braeside factory setting.

Paired old socks will be washed, sorted and sent to third world countries.

Single socks and holey socks will be shredded and made into brand new funky ones. 

We are asking for your support by dropping off your old unwanted socks either -

1. Into the Pink “Sock Bins” located at the front and back of Yarrabah school during student pick up and drop off times.


2. Send them with your child to their Homeroom.

They will then be collected, laundered and sorted at Yarrabah then taken to the Man Rags factory for packaging and distribution.

Any questions please contact Bek Sibenaler or Lisa Wilson.
