Fair Trade

Welcome to Fairtrade 2019-20

Welcome to the Fairtrade page, as a committee we have been working hard this year to maintain our status as a Fairtrade school. Last year the committee worked really hard to renew our status with the Fairtrade Foundation and it was a huge success we have been granted the Fair Achiever Award which means that we have achieved the top level of success. We would like to thank everyone who helped to support us in our many sales last year.

Fairtrade Christmas Sale

The Fairtrade committee have been busy preparing for our Christmas sale. We have been preparing to visit the FairDos shop to collect items to sell to raise money for the Fairtrade Foundation and designing posters advertising our event. Look out for the posters that will tell you some more about our Festive Gingerbread decorating stall!

Fairtrade Article

Click the link to read the article that we wrote after reading the First News article about the impact of the agricultural industry and how Fairtrade can help to stop this. 

The Fairtrade committee have been reading an article in First News about the impact of the agricultural industry on the farmers and producers who grow the things that we enjoy; the article focussed particularly on the chocolate industry. We learnt that over 108million children around the world are forced to work in the agricultural industry. We don’t think this is FAIR because that means that those children are being denied their right to an education. So what can we do to help? We can support Fairtrade because if you buy any product that has a Fairtrade logo you know that children have not been allowed to be used in order to produce it.

In our committee meetings we have been working collaboratively to create a Fairtrade directory of different products that you can buy at home to help to support the Fairtrade foundation and the growers and producers around the world who make the lovely things that we all enjoy.

Fair Trade! 

 

This year we have been really busy in the Fair Trade committee. We have updated our action plan and made a new school policy. 

 

As a committee we decided that we would like to host a Fair Trade breakfast so we wrote to Waitrose to ask if they could support us, because Waitrose support the Fair Trade movement, lots of their own products support Fair Trade. We asked them if they could donate some bananas to us so that we could have a Fair Trade breakfast and they said yes. Our breakfast was a huge success and we raised £50 for Fair Trade and we are going to use the money to buy some Fair Trade balls. 

We have also decided that we will host Fair Trade bananas and toast one Friday each month since everyone enjoyed it so much!

We have written a letter and made card to say a big THANK YOU to Waitrose for supporting us.

The Fairtrade committee has shared an assembly with KS2 where they have been able to share the key messages of Fairtrade and why it is important that we help support their work. We have shared how the Fairtrade Foundation has been helping chocolate farmers in Ghana and the Ivory Coast who produce 60% of all of the worlds chocolate! Look out for the Fairtrade logo on your favourite chocolate bars!
