Celebrating Fairtrade

22nd March 2016

This year the theme for Fairtrade is the Big Fartrade Breakfast.

Food is vital for us all to be happy and healthy, sadly, too often the millions of people in poorer countries who grow our food don’t earn enough to have a happy and healthy lives themselves.

People everywhere have the power to change this show your support for the farmers and workers who grow our food.

We got behind the Big Fairtrade Breakfast to help them to get a fair deal, feed and look after their families and protect the environment too!

Celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight 2016
 

Wake up to the Big Breakfast – That’s exactly what we did at St. Mary’s.

We brewed some fine Fairtrade Tea and coffee before our Parents smothered their toast with a selection of Fairtrade spreads; marmalade, honey and chocolate. Finally, tucking into some homemade muffins, made only using Fairtrade Bananas and sugar.
 

FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT ASSEMBLY

Our year 5 pupils presented an assembly through role play about the Tea Farmers in Kenya.

  • Learners were able to find out about the choices they make about the foods we eat each morning and the farmers growing them.
  • Gain an understanding of what Fairtrade is and how it aims to work.
  • Reflect on the effects of climate change on the future of the food and drink we consume.

A PRAYER FOR OUR FAIRTRADE FARMERS
 
Our Pupils in Year 5 wanted to write a prayer for those farmers that grow the food that you love to eat...

We pray that those farmers can overcome the problems trapping them in poverty.

A huge thank you goes to our supporters. We are incredibly grateful for all their efforts in helping make this Fairtrade Fortnight a success through our learning and all the activities.

 

Remember Fairtrade is not just for a Fortnight.
