Afloat by Peregrine: bags from recycled sailsFrancesca Palange
Peregrine Community School is a small independent primary school nestled in the quiet bush environment of Nicholls Rivulet in the south of the small island state of Tasmania, Australia. It is purposely a small school (70 students from Kinder to Grade 6) where children are nurtured to learn and grow in a natural, responsive and engaging environment. We take the time – and create the space – to build respectful and collaborative relationships.
Fundraising for a small school such as Peregrine is always a challenge and a few years ago the idea was put forward to start a “business” which would operate to support the school by raising much needed funds. This is how Afloat by Peregrine was born.
A team of parents works in our little sail loft to produce a range of one-of-a-kind bags and accessories made from recycled sails which are donated to us from various businesses and individuals from around Australia.
