Fairtrade Planning Meeting

This afternoon Hannah from Leeds DEC and children from Abbey Grange, Ireland Wood Primary and Woodlands Coop Primary met with us (Stella, Kai, Joshua, Isobel and Ben) in the café to talk about this year’s Fairtrade message and to plan workshops that each school would be running at the Fairtrade Celebration at Leeds Civic Hall on 2nd March.

The children came up with lots of great ideas which Mrs Walker and I look forward to being realised at the celebration.




Fairtrade Cafe

To mark the end of our Fairtrade Fortnight we held a Fairtrade Café. There was a bake off competition with lots of amazing entries all using Fairtrade ingredients. The café was very well attended and everyone enjoyed sampling the cakes on offer.

A big thank you to Friends who organised and ran the café this afternoon.

Fairtrade Assembly

 This morning Roger, from The Beehive (a community Fairtrade shop based in Chapel Allerton) visited school and talked about what Fairtrade means and how we can help make a difference.

 

We will be selling Fairtrade products (on behalf of The Beehive) after school on selected dates.
