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.
