Knitting and Crocheting for Nepal


by Brigid Muir

Beanies, gloves and scarves are being produced for earthquake victims in Nepal, handcrafted by Noosa District State High School students, staff and members of the local community.

The NDSHS Student Council with the support of the art department have coordinated and set up a crocheting and knitting club, which meets every Friday at lunch time at the school library.
Students, staff and members of the local community come together to knit and crochet, socialise and share in tea and biscuits; all for a very good cause.
All the beanies, scarves and gloves made this term will be packaged up and send with University of the Sunshine Coast Nepalese students who are returning home for the university holidays.
Airlines have allowed for weight restrictions to be lifted for people returning to Nepal, so the USC students will be able to take back extra items to assist with the recovery and rebuild in the aftermath of two devastating earthquakes.
NDSHS students and staff have enjoyed interactions with members of the local community, who have come into the school to volunteer their time to teach knitting and crocheting.
