Our Fairtrade Committee are elected each September after an election campaign whereby candidates prepare a speech detailing why they want to be a member of the Fairtrade Committee. Each KS2 class elect one representative. The Fairtrade Committee meet at least once every half term to discuss how to promote Fairtrade. They plan, organise and share details with the whole school community.
Fairtrade School Award
CONGRATULATIONS! Our Fairtrade Committee have successfully met the criteria for this prestigious award yet again. We are super proud to announce that following our recent application, we have successfully maintained our Fairtrade status for the 12th successive year.
Obviously, we couldn't have done this without the support of our whole school community. Thank you everyone!
Whole School Fairtrade Assembly
Our Fairtrade Committee would like to thank all classes for their involvement in our whole school, Fairtrade assembly. Children enjoyed sharing their learning about all of the things they learned about Fairtrade.
Fairtrade Christmas Bingo
As usual everybody had great fun taking part in our annual Fairtrade Christmas Bingo as organised by our Fairtrade Committee. The committee worked so hard to visit each class ensuring they all took part and were in with a chance to win some Fairtrade chocolate goodies.
Thank you to everybody who donated the prizes and as always thank you to our Fairtrade Committee who work so hard to promote Fairtrade each term.
Fairtrade Fashion Show
Congratulations to our Fairtrade Committee for organising another successful whole school project.
Having tasked each class with learning about Fairtrade issues during Fairtrade Fortnight, they organised a whole school celebration of their learning which resulted in our Fairtrade Fashion Show.
Each class were allocated an item of clothing. They were given 50 Fairtrade labels from chocolate bars and were challenged to not only create the item of clothing, but to dress a member of their class in the item. During the Fashion show, each class were awarded points for their item of clothing, their catwalk routine and the quality of work they shared with the school about Fairtrade.
As you can see from the pictures, we had great fun admiring the handiwork of very talented members of our school. Most of all, our Fairtrade Committee succeeded in raising awareness of the work of The Fairtrade Organisation. Congratulations to you all.
