This 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.
This morning, Roger Robertson from local business The Beehive led an assembly. He talked to the children about what Fairtrade means, how we can help and used bananas as an example.
Roger left with Mirs Walker and Miss Whiteley a selection of Fairtrade products (chocolate, tea, coffee, biscuits, friendship bands, pens and many more items) these will be on sale after school on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Fairtrade Fortnight is almost here!
To start off our celebrations and to help raise awareness of all things Fairtrade, local business, The Beehive will be visiting school and leading an assembly on Monday 29th February.
The Beehive aims to promote Fairtrade by providing information and selling Fairtrade products.
