The students and school need your support! Be there at PurpleStar on coming Saturday!

PurpleStar | Pre-loved Designer Clothing Sale
11am till late on Saturday, 13 June 2009
at 26 Niven Road (off Wilkie/ Sophia roads)

NorthLight assists students at risk of ‘dropping out’ of formal education. Most of its students have failed their PSLE. The school offers education and training in retail operations, engineering and food preparation, with an emphasis on developing self esteem and life-skills.

All funds raised will support NorthLight’s Special Student Assistance Scheme, which helps need students to purchase food and study resources, and Grace Haven children’s shelter.

The PurpleStar project is also enabling NorthLight’s retail operations students to work with professional volunteers to experience the retail process first-hand, and gain valuable experiences as sales assistants at the sale.

“Helping a child from a deprived background get an education has a much greater impact on society than helping a middle class students get a distinction on his Special paper at A-levels. I am grateful to NorthLight for turning (my daughter’s) life around and giving her a real shot at a better futuer.” – Jimmy Yap, father of Helen (3FP2, NorthLight School)

Items that will be on sale includes evening gowns, coats and knitwear, business suits, casual wear from designers brands, including CK, DKNY, Ferragamo, Miu Miu and a selection of artwork and handicrafts produced by NorthLight students.

All items have been generously donated by friends of NorthLight School and are in “as new” condition.
