On Thursday 28 February 2013 the Childcare department held a fashion show and art exhibition to showcase their learning on children's rights. The event took place in Nightingales restaurant with the College Principal, Peter Mayhew-Smith present amongst a number of friends and family.

As part of the Childcare course students have been working on gaining an in-depth understanding of children's rights. The students have worked in small groups to research an article from the rights and have taken this information and designed this onto a t-shirt. These t-shirt designs were displayed in the fashion show.

The students have also gone into their work placements and have set up activities to raise children's awareness of their rights. This resulted in children making artwork displaying what their rights mean to them and this is the artwork that was on display at the exhibition.

Following the catwalk display of t-shirts the students were questioned by their tutor on what right they learnt about and how they approached this with the children they work with in their placement.

The Carshalton College hairdressing students were also involved in the show doing the hair for those students participating in the fashion show.

Carshalton College Childcare tutor, Xiao-Huang Li organised the fashion show and exhibition and said "The students have really gained a thorough understanding of children's rights and the importance & seriousness of the subject. It has been great for them to display what they have learnt in a different way through the fashion show and art exhibition. We are all so pleased with our students and the effort they have put in with the subject and with the show. This is the first time we have organised this event and it has proven very successful and has aided the students in their learning."
