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.
We are the Fairtrade Committee
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!
We hosted a Fairtrade breakfast of bananas on toast 🍌
It was delicious and we managed to raise £50 for Fairtrade. We wanted to say a big THANK YOU! To Waitrose who kindly donated the bananas for us to use so we've made a thank you card.
If you would like to support the Fair Trade movement yourselves at home, look at all of the different suppliers who support Fair Trade.
