We are the Fairtrade Committee at Herbert Thompson Primary. We believe that by making good individual choices, we can change the world around us and make a difference. By supporting and promoting Fairtrade, the committee empower farmers and workers in marginalised countries.
Fairtrade Committee 2018-2019:
We are pleased to announce that our Chair person this year is Jake and our Vice Chair is Tayana. We are looking forward to another successful year with the fair trade committee.
Every year during Fairtrade fortnight, the Fairtrade Committee run an assembly for the school and teach individual lessons across the school. This year, we are hosted an ‘Fairtrade afternoon tea’ for parents and children to promote the use of Fairtrade products. Staff baked and donated Fairtrade cakes and biscuits for the event and parents paid for tickets to attend. We had entertainment provided by Mrs Gidney in the form of violin playing and Jackie Coughlin from 'Tesco eat happy project' came to discuss fairtrade options in store and brought a number of raffle prizes for us. We managed to raise £100 and awareness of this worthy cause.
The Fairtrade committee also regularly check that the food in the staff room, canteen and tuckshop is Fairtrade.
