And Sew It GLO's - face mask intructions on GLO for parent volunteers

03 September 2020

Elizabeth Ellean has created some face mask directions and instruction sheets and these are available to Parents on the via the Handwork page on GLO (Glenaeon Learning Online portal). 

There was another good turn out this Tuesday lunchtime in the textiles room for face making volunteers including Year 10 students, Pipi and Olivia who are driving the initiative as part of their Duke of Ed service.

The aim is to make over 100 masks for the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse cancer treatment hospital. The hospital is currently giving out huge numbers of masks each day to outpatients and visitors, and wearing a mask is a prerequisite for hospital entry.

Students that cannot make the Tuesday lunchtime session are encouraged to pick up a take home kit for students, family and friends to make.  If you can help cut material and elastic, make up kits or sew masks then please send an email to 

Parents are invited to help in the off-campus sewing bee:

  1. Download the face mask pattern or use the one on GLO.
  2. Find some suitable fabric you have lying around or buy some
  3. Make as many face masks as you can
  4. Send some pics of your mask sewing activity to 
  5. Ask your child to bring the completed masks to school and hand them in at reception

Glenaeon will arrange for delivery of the completed masks to Chris O’Brien Lifehouse at the end of the term. If you need fabric, please let Elizabeth know. If you can sew, donate fabric, elastic or support in any way, please contact Elizabeth via email

Sew much fun! And for a great cause!
