Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Oxfam in Stroud Collaborate with SGS College Art Students on Sustainability Project

The Stroud branch of Oxfam kindly donated unsellable garments to the art students at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College to upcycle and remake into beautiful hand-crafted pieces to be showcased in the shop’s window display.

The brief to the students was to use all recycled fabrics and nothing brought from new to design and make. The project was created in response to the fashion industry producing over 100 billion new garments a year from new fibres, and the planet being unable to sustain this. The Art department at the College is passionate about teaching a holistic understanding of sustainability in the fashion and luxury industries.

Lichen Davenport, Art & Design Lecturer at SGS College, Stroud School of Art, commented:

“This collaboration with Oxfam was a great way for our learners to showcase their amazing upcycling skills and prove that sustainable fashion can be cutting-edge, as well as the solution to protect our planet”.

Art and Design Foundation student, Tilly Parsley, said:

“I really enjoyed this sustainability project. It felt good to use the clothes that Oxfam were unable to sell, to make new garments as it reduced the amount of waste even more so. I am really pleased with our display as I think our creations look splendid altogether and it’s good to see them in the Oxfam window in a new and refreshing way”.

The window display at Oxfam in Stroud will be on display from 16th February – 2nd March
