Fairtrade Fortnight

Published on isbi School News dated Friday 15th of April 2016

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight the Fairtrade Committee led morning assembly on Wednesday 2nd March. Fairtrade Assembly 2016 Ahead of the assembly, the Fairtrade Committee set a challenge: the Pupil Councillor from each Form was asked to pick a Fairtrade item out of a hat and one lucky individual from each Form had to dress as that item for assembly. The resulting Fairtrade Fashion Show was fantastic including a sugar cube, Mr Honey, Soaper Man and a pineapple! Pupils also acted out a story of how tea is grown in Kenya and how the Fairtrade farmers there benefit from the Fairtrade premium. The assembly was a great way to raise pupils' awareness of The Fairtrade Foundation's mission which is about achieving better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
