Fairtrade Fortnight

Last week and this week we have been really enjoying exploring Fairtrade Fortnight.

We have learned about food producers from different parts of the world and the problems that affect farmers in some countries and areas.

We’ve learned about what the Fairtrade scheme is and how it benefits the farmers involved and allows them to earn a fair living and provide for their families.

One of the highlights of our first Fairtrade fortnight was todays ‘virtual visit’ from Claire Arnott of the Fairtrade Foundation. It was fantastic to hear in more detail how the scheme works and the children on the zoom call all asked excellent questions.

Our Christian values are central to all that we’re trying to achieve as a school, and engaging with Fairtrade is a great way to develop our our understanding of two of our core values -Justice & Compassion.

We’re really looking forward to exploring Fairtrade more in the future.
