Fairtrade Ambassadors Wanted!

Mrs Walker and Miss Whiteley are looking for four children (KS2) that would like to become Fairtrade Ambassadors for our school.

You will need to be able to promote all things Fairtrade, be able to talk to groups of children/your class and be full of good ideas about how we can raise awareness.

The Ambassadors will also be involved in organising events during Fairtrade Fortnight and will attend the Fairtrade Celebration Ceremony at Leeds Civic Hall and represent our school.

If you are interested please see Mrs Walker or Miss Whiteley to find out more.

Fairtrade Celebration

Fairtrade Fortnight 2016This afternoon Mrs Walker and Miss Whiteley accompanied 4 children, Ayesh, Nishta, Harvey and Daniel to Leeds Civic Hall.  The children had been invited to  participate in the annual Fairtrade Celebration organised by Fairtrade Leeds and Leeds DEC.

Upon arrival the group were able to select two workshops each that they wanted to be involved in. The girls chose a bunting activity and the Chocolate game while the boys opted for Football Fever and the Buzzing Honey workshop.

The afternoon was spent listening to speakers watching Fairtrade films and participating in the workshops.

We also learnt that you can also get Fairtrade footballs and Daniel was presented with a football from company Bala on behalf of school.
