“SEAT was an amazing experience for myself and the other Year 5 students. It helped us learn about teamwork, building skills, helping others and sustainability. The SEAT is a bamboo stool that is made in Vietnam which helps people to get jobs to provide for their families. On top of this it is made in a factory that uses the bamboo offcuts to fuel the electricity.
We were given the stools in a flat-pack kit box and we had to work within a team to try and put it together without any instructions. This taught us how to work together. We then thought up beautiful, creative designs for the stool. All the stools ended up with beautiful, unique designs and ideas. Then it came to the big time…..the AUCTION. Parents, teachers and students were invited to buy the SEATs to take home. In return the money we’ve raised is going to Oxfam, our chosen charity. These SEATs were not ordinary, they were extraordinary!”
