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 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 Celebration at Leeds Civic Hall

This afternoon the Fairtrade Ambassadors, Taiya, Jack and Helna visited Leeds Civic Hall and attended the city’s Fairtrade Celebration which had been organised by Leeds Dec. There were speakers who gave talks about several Faitrade projects and then the children were invited to participate in workshops together with children from other Primary Schools from across Leeds.

Chocolate tasting for Divine Chocolate proved very popular!

The Buzz workshop (learning about Fairtrade Honey). Next Taiya and Helna tested their Fairtrade knowledge in a game of Trivial Pursuits while Jack tested his knowledge and made a kebab out of Fairtrade fruit.




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.
