Fairtrade Fortnight at St Benedict's Junior School

Published on isbi School News dated Monday 25th of March 2013

St Benedict's Junior School went all out this year for Fairtrade Fortnight with a number of different activities taking place. The fortnight kicked off with a Fairtrade 'Pudding Competition'. Children had to come up with a recipe for a dessert that contained Fairtrade products. The dessert was then cooked by the catering team and served during lunch. Congratulations to seven year old Luke Ainslie (Year 3) - his winning recipe was for banana cake and syrup. There was also a 'Silver Trail' challenge in which pupils brought in silver coins to make a trail laid out in the playground. Year 4 Form M won the prize for the longest line.
Eco Co-ordinators, Mrs Matilda Logsdon and Ms Becky Machin said: 'Another successful event was our Fairtrade Cake Sale of homemade and Fairtrade cakes, run by the School Eco Council, which went down a storm, raising over £300. Finally, in our 'Decorate Your Door' Competition, each Form decorated their classroom door to promote Fairtrade fortnight. The winners were Mrs Rutherford's class Year 5 Form M. Overall we raised more than £600 for our Lenten charities so a huge 'Thank you' to everyone for your support!'
