BURLEY & WOODHEAD C E PRIMARY SCHOOL FAIR TRADE REPORT
In September 2016, Burley and Woodhead CE Primary School Council were set the challenge to become a Fair Trade School. The School Council prepared an assembly to make the whole school aware of Fairtrade and what a “Fair price” means for farmers/producers.
We put up a FAIRTRADE display in school.
The School Council put together a whole school survey on FAIRTRADE to help raise awareness.
This year for the first time we ran a FAIRTRADE stall at the school Christmas Fair.
The School Council ran a FAIRAWARE poster competition. The winners were put up around the village.
The staffroom is now a FAIRTRADE zone using Fairtrade tea, coffee and biscuits.
Karen Palframan, the Chair of the Bradford FAIRTRADE Zone, came into school to present a Fairtrade Football.
The Year 6’s were the first to test it out in the playground!
The School council held an Assembly to tell the whole school how 70% of the world’s footballs were hand stitched by workers in Sialkot. By buying a Fairtrade football the extra money can help the football stitches receive eye tests and the whole community benefitted from a water filtration system.
On the 18th January we were awarded a FAIRAWARE School status.
What next? We’re now organising our Fairtrade Fortnight in school and working towards our Fair Active award.
